Creating new work for my solo show

The countdown is on to my new solo show from 19–23 August at the Percolator Gallery in Paddington, Brisbane. Opening night is Friday 21 August. I would love as many people to be there as possible. This is my title image for the show "Moments in Spontaneum", which explores the outcome of paintings that are painted during moments of spontaneous action where the paint is applied in a very quick, loose and unplanned way. If my work is starting to look laboured or too "thought about" I like to step back, get back in the zone and then 'attack' the work again, in a freer state of mind! Most of the time I am far happier with the outcome :)

My last year's opening night was great fun with lots of people attending.
