Highly flattered I was, to be asked to contribute to the website www.instantloveland.com . This is a dialogue forum for abstract art, examining and debating the diverse forms of art practise. I am indebted to the extremely patient editors John Bunker www.johnbunkerartist.com and Matt Dennis. As I chose to write about a visit I made many years ago, to an open studio event, (and it was very very many years ago!!) there were some extremely interesting discussions had about the subsequent changes in the art world once I submitted the first draft. Food for thought for me certainly. This was a challenging project but ultimately very rewarding. Enjoy!
