When I get into an obsessive state of mind about a creative project I don’t sleep! Last night I kept thinking of adding blue to this platter, and so I had to try it out this morning. I also painted two more pieces with the same concept. This platter you see here is just dried white clay with under glaze painted on it. I will be firing it in the coming days and will be sure to post the finished result…zzz

Mogens Glistrup was a charasmatic Danish politician. He had quite a face – full of personality and charisma! It was a pure joy to paint this portrait. I chose to paint a close-up type of portraiture for this – almost as if it was a photograph, I just felt it added more intensity and interest.
This was fun! Want to paint more furniture this year!! Photo from 2009. (Disregard cigarette – I’m an ex-smoker these days)!
