Sketches

Sketching can be for practice, but also a bridge to keep on going from one idea to the next.

Whodunnit? The Risk of Hanging Art in a Public Space….#Nailsworth

Stolen Elephant PrintThis print was taken recently from my exhibition at The Vault in Nailsworth.  It is rather strange and fortunate that although I had hung the original painting which I am very fond of in the exhibition I then changed my mind and switched it for the print.  There is only one print of this painting.  So if you see this anywhere other than in my possession it is the one that has been stolen.  It is sad isn’t it that this should have happened..?

#Art for Art’s Sake

Sometimes, or maybe even often, I produce pieces of work and dismiss them.  I don’t mean to, I do not think hard about this at all, it just happens.  These pieces surface at times, perhaps when an exhibition is about to begin and I start gathering things together.

My “Stepping Crane” is such a piece, having been exhibited at the Amberley Inn on our “Fish and Ships” PV night and I am pleased to say it is shortly on its’ way to a new home.

#Fish and #Pheasants shimmer and gold.

There is soon to be an exhibition at the Amberley Inn nr Stroud which will include these artworks.  The Koi fish painting was a joy to paint and now needs a nice frame.  The exhibition will start on 1st September more details to follow.  In the meantime here is Halcyon and Wilderness Pheasants with lots of yummy (inedible) gold leaf.
