Stephen Riley: '02' 2020-23


… development
I first posted an image of this painting – ‘02’ – on this site a couple of years ago, but I was never quite satisfied with it, and it was temporarily abandoned while I concentrated on other pieces and then on writing. Spending more time in the studio now my third book ‘Soul Stories’ is complete and out there, I have revisited it and am now content to called it finished.

For full details see gallery page:

I have also just completed another piece – ‘05’ – which I haven’t made public yet. It is of a similar ilk; part of the same series, but in a staggered vertical format. I hesitate to call it portrait format, as its shape make that hardly appropriate.

Plus, another new work is just in the preparation stage.
