I’ve been focusing on some tiny painting lately! These are pebbles collected while on holiday in Devon and Cornwall in England. The pendants are painted with acrylic, varnished and hung on waxed cotton string with Japanese sliding knots.
These now belong to someone, but look out for ones available to buy…..
Have been looking to choose images for getting prints made and thinking I might pick this as one of them. Moody pic of a favourite local Beech tree which I more often see at a distance from the other side as I pass by on a bike ride. (At the moment looking almost unrecognizable in it’s summery green guise underneath blue skies!)
Available as an Artist Quality Open Edition Giclee Print. Please enquire.
Sunshine and colour – a joy for me smearing on that red-orange-yellow!

One more for you to see before June is out…this belongs to my sister and is a local area that comes up in a number of my paintings.

Something more recent and different: a collage. I can’t remember the last time I did a collage…could be when I was in primary school. No, wait, I think it was when I did a short course at college in the States on teaching art to children. This is mostly white tissue paper painted and torn and a couple other papers, on board, framed behind glass.

Oh boy, it’s been a long long while since I uploaded anything! After all that grey and brown winter, Spring is here, and before I know it this is what the old Roman route down to the river will look like. Mud and more mud at the moment, but it won’t take long to green up. This is another painting from a few years back while I’m busy producing new artwork.

I produced a few moonlit paintings and a number inspired by the nearby beech wood a few years back. This painting began with the exposed roots forming natural steps up the bank.

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.

This was an enjoyable experiment. I have in my house a collection of dried leaves my sister and family pressed for our family as a part of a gift a few years back., and they were calling out to be used. The leaves haven’t photographed as well as I’d like – they are gold; warmer tones than in this photo.
