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.
Local views at the edge of the Cotswolds, near my home.

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.

I do love trees. This painting comes from countless walks through the small beech wood, ten minutes amble from my doorstep. Love it in the autumn when the golden-brown leaves float down and carpet the ground and let in the bright blue sky, when the winter reveals the tracery of the branches, in the spring with the fresh light green of new leaves, and in the summer when only shafts of sun make it past the shade to the beech wood floor.

Sometimes it looks a little more like this in January…frosty instead of the soggy mess it is outside now as I am posting this.

I really liked every bit of painting this from beginning to end. Which isn’t always the case; sometimes I get stuck for a while and a painting feels like hard work. This was enjoyable all the way.

Slate Drawing…(no picture of it framed). These slate drawings are evocative – they develop from what the irregular surface and shape of the slate leads me to see, but within the bounds of sea or landscape/tree themes. My first few trees were those windblown trees on Dartmoor.
