Geraniums Red

Geraniums (Red)

Thought I’d post this sunny one on what is a very rainy day.  One of my few paintings executed entirely en plein air.  A lovely few afternoons of hot sunny summer spent in a friend’s garden.

Rooftop Gathering

Rooftop Gathering Crop

There are a couple flocks of doves around our village and one lot hang out on the rooftop two gardens away.

I like the touches of pink/red in the chimney and in the beaks and claws of the doves set against the soft tones of roof, sky and birds.

Freedom

Freedom Crop

This came about after I made a ‘Welcome Home’ card for my daughter (who had been away for a month or so), with a dancing lady on it a bit like this one, and also I had done a painting called A Fine Day, and I wanted to do another with a similar feel, and also something completely from my imagination.

Eye on Me, Morning Egg, Single-minded

Chicken theme trio 2

I thought these needed to be seen together and with frames.  A new way of doing things; board on painted board, framed, with no glass for a slightly rustic feel to go with the subject.  I might do some more.

Sea Swell

Sea Swell

This  was a (tiny) first attempt at using a palette knife instead of brushes and I like it because I think it succeeds in capturing the feel of being out on the sea.  At any rate, it makes me feel cold and a bit queasy!  Some have wondered how I knew how to paint this as they know I get motion-sick very easily.  Done from memory from occasionally (unwisely) relenting and getting into a boat with my sailor husband!
