"Token of Tango"


          A new painting inspired by the music of the Scandinavian jazz pianist Tord Gustavsen entitled "Token of Tango" taken from the album "The Ground" the name seemed to suit the picture.

Murison studio/gallery (Artists in focus No.2)

       I spent a day recently with a colleague, the artist Neil Murison RWA at his studio/gallery and home "The Grange" near Bristol England. We meet regularly at life drawing classes but this was an opportunity to discuss art and view some of the work of this prolific artist. 

        Murison was born in 1930 and it was fascinating to talk to an artist that has exhibited across Europe and whose work is held in many permanent collections.
Palm trees a favourite subject for Murison
