When the artworks just keep coming...

This one here is my brand new work "Afterglow". I really enjoyed making this one and think I wouldn't mind living inside it for a while...

Afterglow is a limited edition of 20. Size: 80 x 80cm
(31 x 31 inches)

" THAT'S what it would look like framed and in situ!"

Another fresh newbie: Shambling Alps

Sometimes it's hard to know when to stop working on an artwork. I could probably keep tweaking this beast for another month or so! But no.....Life dictates that it's finished now.  
So here it is; "Shambling Alps" A limited edition mixed media print. 70 x 70 cm

I don't quite remember deciding if it was going to be abstract, or an actual specific thing... But now that it's finished, it's so obviously a mountain dwelling candy-wrappered lava-dragon!

And then THIS happened...

Just when you thought things couldn't get any more bright and colourful in La Shuks land, Tropichrysalis happens!
Incidentally, the first draft of this artwork started twinkling almost two whole years ago, when
I decided I really wanted to create a tropical piece using my many photographs of luscious foliage and caribbean palm trees. But it just kept stalling somewhere in the execution, so 
I would put it on hold and move on to other works, completing around 10 artworks during this time. Over the two years since it's first glimmer of life, my ideas and techniques have changed and developed so much. So much so, that when I finally came back to it a month ago and worked on it to completion, the end product has turned out totally unrecognisable to that orignal incarnation!
"hmmm yes, very effective..."
