Well its the turning of the year here in Masham in Yorkshire but, instead of some winters when we've been knee deep in snow, its just a grey rainy day.
So I've been working away at some changes to my website - putting up details of the next exhibitions coming up, scanning and photographing work for some new picture pages and deleting the details of 2013's events.
Its been a great year. I finished my book Tales of the Dales in time for the exhibition of the same name in the summer and also my children's book The Penhill Giant.
The weather was mixed for much of the year but I managed some great painting trips.
So many people gave me new stories during the Tales of the Dales that I've started working on a new book and I've got some new paintings planned for my next exhibition in May.
Here are the links if you want to catch up with what's coming in 2014:
