dear reader, do you remember my experimental travelling abstract iCons series from early 2010 – where will they go, i often do not know

maroc, 2010, 13cm x 13cm x 3cm. photographed in natural daylight on a typically cloudy day in great britain. read more about this small abstract canvas, maroc – around the world in one hundred abstracts
nepal 2010, in the artist’s studio, under the spotlight!
nepal 2010, seen on a rare outing to the very end of the artist’s garden, where the rust and algae grows – it seems at home here, despite the weather. read more about this small abstract on canvas, nepal – painting by numbers
tsavo, pueblo (not in the gallery), and maroc.
there are many more small canvases in the (world travelling) iCons series here (with a simple tour guide explanation), and just over there to the right you will see that there are some more canvases ready to travel light to new places, in the country or the city
why is it always about the art on show in cities, in new york, london, berlin..? oh wait, i forgot, that’s how this small travelling project started – to see the world, taking a virtual holiday, on an internet road trip, a small break from the norm, getting away from it all, on a (not so) grand tour, an escape from the country*
*escape to the country is a BBC daytime TV property series in which prospective house buyers hunt for their perfect home in the countryside… as a large nation of people living on quite a small island, we quite like watching property & travel shows
