From my previous body of work. Finally I’m able to frame them all! 

All floating in black frames with nothing touching their edges. Come back in January when I will have them all uploaded, bright and shiney in their new shoes šŸ–¼šŸŽØ

Happy Christmas!, and thank you so much to everyone who has taken interest in my work here on my blog sense I’ve started it not too long ago. Your words and appreciation mean so much to me.

  

Work In Progress

This is just a detail section of a painting currently in progress where I’ve incorporated actual pieces of theĀ natural surroundings I draw from onto the surface. Colours are that bit brighter in this piece and from a personal level, that is very significant.

Last Of The Blue Moon

This is a recent painting where I brought some bits I’ve gathered from the forest floors while out walking. I wanted to bring the outside surroundings back to my studio for some recent paintings that I am working on. The gathering of such things like pine needles, bits of twigs, broken up pine cones and dried dead leaves were placed on the surface of the canvas before I painted over it. I used the bits I’ve gathered as a way of sketching out the composition on the canvas which changed the structure in places as the painting progressed.
