The Silent Lanscape exhibition looms ever closer.  Today Natasha and I completed the designs for the posters, flyers and invites and sent it off to the printers.

This is the main design:

tsl-poster-jpgMy next task is to update my personal website.  That will be done in the next few days, and then when all the flyers etc arrive it will be distributing time!

Meanwhile the easel calls  – I’ve still got paintings to complete :))


This is my new completed painting for The Silent Landscape Exhibition.
I’m really pleased with this piece. Everything about it has fallen into place. I’m sure its been helped by my delivery of new materials today, of which I used the Gold Ochre and a new rigger brush for acrylics.
Yes, I did this painting today from start to finish! Its quite small (measurements under the photo below) so it wasn’t difficult to complete in a few hours. Sometimes it goes like that – a painting just goes right from start to finish…

Anyway – enjoy!

Yes, I’m obsessed with Autumn, its colours and its atmosphere!!
Anyway, here’s the new one 🙂

The Sparkling Autumn © Deborah Eileen Burrow mixed media on 50.7 x 50.7cm (20″ X 20″) gallery wrap deep edge canvas 3.5cm (1.5″)

This is the first in a set of 5 paintings in mixed media on 50.7 x 50.7cm (20″ X 20″) gallery wrap deep edge canvas 3.5cm (1.5″) for The Silent Landscape exhibition.
I was pleased with this because the metallic colours worked – it covers a large area of the painting and I wasn’t sure if it would be too much. I just love using rich autumnal colours and metallic paints. I’m now working on a new one in a similar vein – to be posted shortly 🙂

A new painting completed for the upcoming show.
The inspiration for this painting came when we were camping last September in the bell tent. Because it was such good weather we woke early, often before dawn. It was on one of these mornings that we witnessed dawn over the seaside town of Blakeney, across the marshes on the North Norfolk Coast in England. We took lots of photos for reference, and this painting shows the scene just before the sun came up. It was slightly misty and all we could see were the 2 towers of the church.
