Art and Ambition 2016


Richard Witham
Since I started creating artwork over 5 years ago I have been fortunate that my work has been supported and purchased continually and I now have a number of wonderful supporters who have been the reason why I continued and developed my work and have seen it purchased by customers as far away as Singapore to the US.
Via eBay - my blog and website I have enjoyed great success as well as having tried out my work with success via a small numbers of galleries here in the South West and London.
As 2016 starts I have pondered what the next step should be and I have realised that there is only one real direction and I intend to pursue this avenue across this year.
When I started and as I continued I never imagined I would have made this rather unexpected career change albeit that I have continued with business world work to subsidise my art ensuring I could continue and that Gael and I [and now Alfie the Cocker Spaniel] do not starve in the process.
To focus on creating my work to now work with galleries in the 'real world art market' I shall be ceasing my business world work as well as removing myself from eBay to ensure there is no conflict.
For those who may be interested in understanding how I intend to realise the next part of this journey please click here.
This is not a request for participation however if your feel you could share it with colleagues then this supports my desire to reach as many people as I can.

I have been fortunate to be busy with some exciting commissions which have led me into the world of Sean Scully for inspiration.
 I realised that I had created a piece a few years ago which has been wrapped and stored away and having re discovered it I used it as a basis to create the commission pieces which measure 6' x 4'.
I have now re framed my original piece and offer it for sale.

Set in a real wood satin finish box frame behind glass.
