I’ve had a lot of preparation to do and haven’t been able to make paintings. All done now and after Christmas I will start again. They have placed us in tier four. Tier four isn’t a tier of any kind, it’s a lockdown, all shows stopped dead again. The public square is closed. I can’t see what the government and everyone else is up to for myself, with my own eyes. I am now dependent on the media and different commentators. This is new for me.
