'Sail Away' paintings

I have recently been playing with painting 'just for me'.
There is no specific exhibition/gallery/award coming up where these may head to. I'm enjoying the freedom of not working to a deadline or a purpose. I have only recently realised that I don't paint for myself often enough.
These are small, 20cm square paintings - reworked over older paintings. I am loving the negative spaces which I have painted in.
I have called them the 'Sail Away' series as the idea of peacefully drifting on the ocean, lake or calm waterway really appeals to me. Each painting has a little abstract sailing vessel suggested somewhere.
