This abstract painting has been knocking around in the studio for around three years, sometimes paintings just don't feel quite right and these are the ones that hang around for what feels like an age.  

Every now and then I get it out and and take a good look most of the time I don't do anything but look but sometimes I do a little more to it like yesterday

Op's I left the top off my Liquin painting medium the other day !

It's so frustrating getting so involved in the abstract painting I'm working on that I often don't notice the time and then have to rush to get home or keep an appointment that I make silly mistakes like this.

Oh well I suppose it of to the art suppliers today

the other evening I was reminded of our recent trip to Scotland.

one of the best things about Scotland (apart from the people who are fantastic) is the sheer colour of the place, from brilliant whites and stunning yellows or red browns of the of the hills to the purples blues and deep shadows that bring the dazzling array of colours alive.

Story
Tagline
Colourful Abstract Artist and an energetic student of fun, hardworking, diligent, committed and determined
Introduction

I live with dyslexia and M.E. which has to some extent moulded some of my life choices; however I have learnt that I am the master of my own fate giving me the power to overcome any difficulties that present themselves. Today I work as an artist (painter) and created my own website Mjo-art and maintain a blog,  colours of intent as well as being involved in a number of exciting business enterprises including web design, property, marketing, consultancy and promotions.

As an artist, painting is like putting together the Notes in music, the rifts, cords and melodies combine in colour, texture and shapes that create the harmonies, energy and balance that bring a painting to life. This is especially true in appreciating modern and abstract artwork which is in essence the raw power of emotion and ideas that spring from the human state, filling our world with images and excitement.

My recent involvement in a domestic cleaning business in Chelmsford, Essex as the marketing director has offered me the chance to develop and hone my skills in web design allowing me the chance to maintain D.K.M. domestic services on the first page of Google for a number of search terms without the need to spend a single penny to achieve this, which I have found most gratifying to say the least.  I am without a doubt delighted that www.dkm-cleaning.co.uk  has proved to be so successful in meeting and surpassing all our initial targets, making our business turning a profit in only four months of trading.

D.K.M. is about improving the lives of others and the way that we help ordinary people get a better lifestyle, save money and time is by understanding that business is all about Trust! Making money is a result of our actions not the goal which means we create a win win situation for all.

Thinking in Positive ways, is a life changing experience that improvers every aspect of my business life, art and painting particularly has demonstrated to me that reward's for the individual and those around you, far outstrip the effort of personal investment.
