Keeping it rolling!

Okay, so it's been quite a while since my last post. Unfortunately due to the rather stressful situation in my day job, my painting has had a to take a bit of a back seat....this is why I really would like to make a living out of my painting, it all too often has to sit on the sideline when deadlines are due at work, blah, blah, blah!  However, I have managed to open a portfolio at Saatchi Online
which is very exciting.  Quite a few people have viewed my work, although noone has bought anything yet.  I also finally gave in and signed up with Twitter, @eve_whittington.  Still trying to work out what the hell goes on there - it's just a sea of hashtags and seemingly random letters and numbers.  Getting a master class in twittering from the likes of Lord Sugar and Stephen Fry though!
I'm still waiting to hear if I have been successful getting through the first stage of the John Moore Painting Prize and should know by the first couple of weeks in April. In the studio I am currently painting a piece that I hope to register for the Threadneedle Prize in the summer. 
At least it's the Eater holidays next week, so for a fortnight I can forget work and focus on my painting.  It'll be nice to get to the studio when other people are there, usually on a Sunday I work in solitary splendor! I'm told by my good friend Po whose website is doing very well, that it's all about Klout...I didn't even understand when I Googled it.  It's a complex business, painting!
