just came across this great photograph of a painting bought by a very stylish friend and collector – amazing to see how well it works against the deep background 90x90cm untitled, acrylic on canvas.
In the postponed period of Brighton Artists Open Houses 2020 due to social isolation period there has been a brilliant idea to get local artists to exhibit their paintings in the windows of their own house; here is my contribution, harder than it looked to attain, the large pieces looked very sad indeed but this little framed piece worked nestled in the corner of our front window.
Always interesting to get a different perspective on our work as artists; didn’t feel brave enough to leave it there long, but I am definitely feeling inspired to keep painting and appreciating having a studio at home and a garden to go and commune with nature and get inspired – being in flow with painting is one very good way to forget for a few moments/ minutes about COVID 19; I hope anyone reading this is staying safe and sane in these very strange times.
New beginnings, works in progress – if I can drag myself away from medium pieces I’ve been sweating over, the lovely fresh space of larger canvases is amazing to work on, still got a lot of canvas showing through; hope I can bring them to fruition in time for @artat21 this May for @artistsopenhouses two months to go – watch this space 🙏
little upgrade of ‘Electric Blue Field’ / sharpened up a teeny bit and connected the big blue areas and made it feel more in keeping with more recent work, managed to restrain myself from completely changing it – nice size for framing #acrylic on canvas #blues #abstractpainting
‘Bright Sky Gleaming’ – in the kitchen
New commissioned painting ‘Upstream – Pilgrimage has just been collected by its owners to a new home in London- so happy they loved it. Acrylic on canvas 50×100 cm
