I am thrilled to have my work photographed and now posted to my website here in Work 7. This work came about so fast and is continuing into the next pieces with a small change in direction. I am looking at opening the space more in the work as per my post last week. I am excited with whats happening right now in my painting. The need to be out more in the open sketching plein air seems to be really helping too.
Painting in oils and coldwax. Mixed with drawing and mark making in charcoal and pencil. Full moon was on my mind at the time of making this painting and I was very much affected by a recent full moon at the time of when this came work about.
This is my first painting of 2019 which is almost finished. For some reason the thoughts of the planets aligning came to mind somewhere during the process. It could be to do with a philosophical conversation I had with my father when I was back home for Christmas. We were talking about the idea of existence and how perfectly aligned the planets are.. how they came into existence and where we fit in the broader spectrum.. It went on for a while..
Its a constant wonder I have of the universe and where we come from. This is a life long wonder I developed from childhood. I was fascinated by the stars at night and watching documentaries on TV about the galaxy and others beyond.. This is why I love to surround myself in the open landscape and forests as strange as it may sound. I become aware of my size and sometimes questions of my significance momentarily pass through my thoughts.
I have now added a news page to my website, this will be updated from time to time with upcoming events and exhibitions I am involved in.
My next exhibition opens next weekend in Frame Experts Gallery for Ranelagh arts members group Christmas show. Along side some great talented artists of various styles, there is something for everyone and to suit all pockets!
I have finally decided to add my own online shop to my website, It has just been added and I am putting up my original art works for sale online. Its just new and I want to put up work with as much detail as possible so you can have a real feel for the painting and whats on its surface, colour and texture. I hope you bare with me as come back often to see whats for sale.
I have lots of new work on the way and I am very excited with the new direction my work is taking me. I hope it can bring some joy to you and perhaps even make you want to have some of my art on your wall in a new home for always. Making art brings me so much happiness and I hope it can bring something new and fresh to you!
Come back to check my new work out as it develops and be part of my journey!
