The New Gallery is well and truly open and has a new swish feel. The paintings are really looking their best as you can see from the picture.
I feel a new beginning and to see the work glowing in a stylish environment gives me new energy.
New work will be flowing in 2011 and I will post them here as they flow out

Vibrant art celebrates New Beginning at Plymouth’s Royal William Yard
Martin Bush presents New Beginning, his spring show of new paintings charting a year in his life as artist in residence at the Royal William Yard. Displaying both exuberance and restraint, the works follow a journey through seasons and emotions; dark and moody pieces are counterbalanced by vibrant colourful canvases; small and intimate jewels cohabit with large jaw-dropping visions.
Colour, movement and energy remain at the core of this new beginning; as well as opening up fresh avenues of expression, reinterpretation brings added depth and perspective to both his more figurative and pure abstract painting. The journey has animated an enthusiasm which has freed Martin to breakthrough to a higher level; vibrancy transcends feeling and reality to go beyond the present to imagine a dreamt world.
It is interesting to be able to look back over a year and reflect on an artist’s mood changes as the seasons pull and twist his palette and attitude to what is created. The influences of the Royal William Yard’s past, estuarine position and rebirth can be sensed as the art delves in and out of pure abstract through striking, vibrant colours and sumptuous marks contrasting with darker more subtle tones.
The exhibition in the New Cooperage, Royal William Yard, Plymouth, PL1 3RP is open Tuesdays to Sundays from 21st May to 30th June.

Hay it's March and still kicking around 3 degrees in my gallery, not good for punters all though yesterday was warmer and it made the difference with a client or 2.
Here is a new painting that some how made it out of the cold onto canvas and feeling this spell of cold is not going to dampen my spirits and I WILL PAINT.
