Squaring The Circle

Having finished experimenting on nine preliminary canvases, I've now started the final painting.
'Who Stole The Toothpaste?' is about my ancestors making a fortune a hundred years ago and then loosing it all again.
I'm working on a circular canvas which is reminiscent of the shape a toothpaste pot my great,great , Uncle Tom sold as part of his pharmaceutical company. I've covered the circle in lettering  and I'm just beginning to paint the overlay which charts of the rise and fall of the company - more on that later.
I'll put some photographs of my progress on the website in a few weeks time.
