why this, why now?

I've decided to try out a blog because I seem to have ideas and get ideas all the time, with no central and accessible way of documenting these ideas. It could be ideas for my own personal projects, ideas for teaching design, design inspiration, or a place to put up some of my own design/art/creative stuff.

So here we go, lets see how well it suits my intentions....

Edinburgh 2004

I did this painting while living in Edinburgh in 2004.  Acrylic on canvas 900 x 450 approx (from memory)
This one is similar to the painting I have just completed of a house on Mt Victoria with the lights on inside at dusk.  The thing about this particular one is that it was from quite late at night in the middle of summer when the light stays in the Scottish sky til close to 11pm.  Whereas the Wellington one is more like 5pm on a winters evening.
