I finally have 2 paintings complete for the Halesworth Gallery open exhibition in Sept. 🙂
I was working on 2 paintings for this show, and I indicated them in my vlog last time. However, as these paintings were progressing they were feeling very wrong and they weren’t going as planned. I was trying a new colour regime – using my usually subdominant colours as dominant ones. This made the paintings quite cool. Mostly I love to paint warm paintings with lots of orange, browns and golds. So you can imagine that unwittingly I had created an image that just wasn’t resonating with me.
Once I realised this I abandoned those 2 canvases and started 2 new ones.
Here are the results:


The first painting is entitled “This is Home for a While” – the second picture is the detail.
The second painting is entitled “Secret Berry Tree” – the second picture is the detail.

All that needs to be done now is varnish them and coat the sides in a nice warm dark brown.

Now I have to get busy with completing the commission I’m doing, and then the body of work for The Enchanted Earth exhibition in December – the joint show with Natasha Newton.

Thats all for now – I’ll post news and new work as it is completed.

At last I am exploring a technique that has fascinated me for years – pyrography.
Burning an illustration into wood.
Its wonderful and I’m loving it. I have decided to produce a body of work to add to my works for the exhibition in December, “Enchanted Earth”.
Here is my first completed piece for it:

The wood is maple and the grain was perfect for creating the illusion of a landscape behind the tree.

I have more plaques to do, some inspired by my recent camping trip in North Yorkshire.

I’ll post them when complete.

Meanwhile I’m also working on 3 canvas paintings too – one is a comission, and 2 are for the upcoming Open Exihibition in the Halesworth Gallery.

I’ll keep you posted 🙂

Well, theres a lot going on here!

Since The Silent Landscape exhibition finished I have had 2 days off camping, and then back into the swing of it all! I am currently working on 3 canvases for Suffolk Showcase, an open exhibition starting July 4th at the Bury St. Edmunds Gallery. Then I have 2 more to do for another open exhibition at The Halesworth Gallery in September. Meanwhile I’ve been working on an unusual commission, a clay hare, which is turning out very cute and successful.

Yesterday I had a meeting with Natasha Newton about another exhibition we’re planning for Christmas. I can now reveal some details. It will be entitled, “Enchanted Earth”. It will be held at The Cinema Gallery in Aldeburgh, 17th – 23rd December, with a Special Event on Saturday 19th. (More to be revealed about that later). All the works will be 12×12″ and smaller, making it an affordable art show.

Finally, I am putting together a book of the body of work I produced for recent exhibition, The Silent Landscape. It will be a simple paper back book, affordable, and a wonderful reminder of the show, and a keepsake for those who visited, and for those who weren’t able to come. I will be using Lulu.com and I’ll let you know when its ready to buy. :)))

So thats all the news here at the moment. I will be very busy for the next few weeks, and I will keep you updated as much as possible.
