Despite my new studio's limited size it's actually rather cosy and I've finally produced some decent new work in the past month.
I relocated to Oxford's Magdalen Road Studios at the end of November 2013. It's a friendly place and it's great meeting other artists but It has taken a while to settle in. I missed my light and airy garden studio at the old house for a long time.
I've had to get used to painting under fluorescent daylight tubes and working in a building full of people, albeit in a self contained lock-up space. I'm generally sociable, but when I'm painting I enjoy nothing more than hours of focused solitude.
Better get back to work.
