Frantic flurry of painting time. . .

Okay, now that I run my own business, and it's holidays, and I have nothing better to do, I've been bitten badly by the oil painting bug. I've found a large long panel of wood (three in fact) quite heavy, but fun to paint on because it is so smooth. Problem is, I'll need a lot more oil paint than I presently have. Gulp.
Anyway, here's the progress on this panel, which I think I've finished. NOW I have ideas tumbling around for more paintings, nothing like this one, but using same black background and rich jewel colours. Watch this space. Of course, any comments greatly appreciated.

The start of a new series of paintings over summer. Hopefully to sell . . .
