ART NEWS – July 2022
I’ve just finished my 6th year of opening up my home for three weekends as part of Warwickshire Open Studios. It was great to catch up with friends and make new friends, and I sold 12 original paintings I believe, as well as a fair bit of printed merchandise.
On the 13 and 14th August I have a stall at “Art in the Park” in Leamington Spa – it’s a yearly art festival which sees artists and craftspeople from all over the county set up stall to sell original work and prints. It’s the first time I’ve done it, but I’m well used to selling my art now, so it should be fun. However, due to quite high sales in Open Studios this months, I’ve got to paint a few more pieces ready for it.
MUSIC NEWS – July 2022
I’m beginning work on the score to the next TV film, this one entitled “The Message of Lourdes”. It’s once again directed by Stefano Mazzeo, and traces the story of St Bernadette of Lourdes, who saw a number of visions of the Virgin Mary in 1858. That’s going to have a very quick turnaround due to EWTN needing a final cut before the end of August.
I’m working too on my series of cosmically-inspired orchestral pieces based around the theme of the Moons of Jupiter. These are not supposed to be programmatic in any way, but are more an avenue for me to explore my love of all things spacey!
In addition, I’m working on a couple of new albums of songs, one which takes Biblical quotes and puts them to music, and the other which expresses some of my often quite tangled thoughts on faith and life.
Finally, I’m working on a remastered recording of my Easter musical, Hope Rising, using the original “Cast recording” but layering in new instrumental layers to give it a fresher sound.
