If you are in my region between 11-26th September please stop in and make yourself known to me, its fabulous to connect in real life.
This week I delivered some art to Collie Art Gallery ( in the south west of Western Australia – about 2 hours from our home.)
I am so pleased with the outcome. Collie Art Gallery is a fabulous art space. If you are in Western Australia please pop in and check out the gallery – and my work
Season’s greetings to one and all. Starting the day by opening a present from a dear friend in Germany – a heartfelt gift, thanks so much Chris.
Look closely – I dabbled with some fluro colours – loved them wet but not so much when they dried – they dulled. Today I revamped the painting ( that’s what I like about using acrylics – you can paint over if you are not happy with the outcome) – I added a top coat, splattered then used a method called sgraffito to reveal some of the original colours. I love it.
What do you see here? An underwater scene? Flowers? Something under the microscope – bacteria, amoeba? What does your imagination see?
Blue, blue and blue🙂5 shades of blue to be exact plus silver, white, yellow, pink, purple … not sure if it’s finished,will wait a while and then see how I think about it. It’s called “My Happy Place.”
Acrylic on canvas – 250cm x 250cm
Over the past few weeks I have read 3 books; A Place to Remember, True Blue and the Book of Colours, (4 if you include the The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart with its gorgeous cover and flower art between the covers) that have spoken to me about art, painting, creativity and the therapeutic value of creativity. The universe feels like it is sending me a message, to say I have been inspired is an understatement – I cannot stop painting! And I am loving the process.
