I have quite a few unfinished paintings that are balancing on a precipice, this is were I start to struggle, somehow they get lost by overworking or by not being brave enough. I wanted to post a couple of these paintings so that I could perhaps look at them in a different way. The first painting is small 30cm x 30cm, the second is larger 60cm x 60cm both acrylics the small one on board and the larger one on canvas.

Here are some photographs taken today of a new work in progress. Using the night paintings as inspiration I am hoping to make some much larger paintings, but not sure if it's going to work yet. As usual I always get distracted by other thoughts and felt like I wanted to add some collage to the piece but not sure about that either so a bit of an indecisive day. I have taken quite a few photographs from different angles and I really like the abstract nature of them.

I have been quite busy over the past few weeks doing some volunteer work at my local arts centre, so unfortunately apart from the night paintings I have done no other work, here are night paintings 8 to 14.
