The winter in London has been unusually cold and Andrew’s studio has been very difficult to keep warm. This is in part because of the twelve-foot ceiling and in part because of the large north-facing window. Nonetheless Andrew has managed to work for long periods by using the time-honoured English method of making tea, lots of mugs of tea, which are more often held in his hands until the tea gets cold, rather than sipped while hot.
In spite of the Arctic climate he has now completed the first of the portraits of his four grandchildren: Madeleine. The remaining portraits, of his grandson Joshua, his grand daughters Jessica and Emily, will have to wait until a large new commission is finished.
Second Variation of the Jazz Suite
As promised in the last newsletter, this is the next mezzotint of the London Album. We call it “JAZZ FIDDLE”.As the others in the suite, it is limited to an edition of 40. Each print is numbered, dated and signed by Andrew. This print is the same size and on the same paper as “JAM SESSION”.You can watch Andrew pulling a print in his studio by going onto YouTube, then search for Jam Session in Andrew’s Art Studio, or click here.

Something to Think About
There are moments in everyone’s life, or the lives of our family and friends that deserve something really special. Commissioning a painting or drawing is a unique way of commemorating that moment. It will be a lasting memory.
