I am totally gobsmacked that after only a couple of weeks painting

abstracts I have sold one. The very first one I painted,the small image on the right, which I suppose is really only semi abstract was bought on Saturday, needless to say I am chuffed to say the least.

The larger image is another in my new abstract style, now I can paint them, I wish I could name them.

Tomorrow I have to deliver my paintings to the new gallery that approached me . I think the opening is on Good Friday, must check that! I am very nervous I have to admit.

On a totally different topic, I find writing posts with blogger very difficult, the photos never move where I want them to and I have problems trying to put titles etc under photos, generally speaking it is much more difficult to move things around than say my web builder. I look at other sites on blogger and they have all kinds of stuff that I find impossible to do. Does one need to know HTML code or what? or is the answer staring me in the face? Would appreciate if anyone out there could advise.


  1. Congratulations Phil, good to see!
    Regards, Richard

  2. Phil - I'm happy to try and help you out a little later. Can you send me an email about what you're trying to do - detailing all the steps you use - and I can try and suggest what might get the pics to work.

    My first inclination is to wonder whether you're loading images which are larger than the width of the blog. I've known that cause a problem in the past.

    It's also worth noting that the templates do vary. (I'm not familiar with the one you're using.)

  3. Sorry - I mean to finish by saying Congrats on your sale!

  4. Am really enjoying your abstract work...great color and movement. Looking forward to following to see what's next.
