The things in my imagined landscapes come from patterns and designs that I ‘find’ as the painting grows. I heard of the Tower of Fools at an exhibition at the Wellcome Foundation a while ago. Image approx. 10×8 inches (25.5×20 cm).
Picture recently framed for upcoming summer exhibition at a local gallery. Image 8 x 10 inches (20×25 cm).
You’ve seen silly – this is sillier!
Mixed media on paper, about 8×10 inches.
Rock-a-bye baby, in the treetop
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall
And down will come baby, cradle and all. (Traditional)
Image is 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm). It emerged like many of my paintings from a random start.
We’ll follow you – but do you know where you are going? Life is like this. Just hope your leader has the correct destination.

Could they be gossiping? I expect so. Looks like a place where many strange things could be going on behind the closed doors.

Another imaginary landscape of houses in the countryside. A yellow rainbow under a purple sky seems unlikely but most things I paint are unlikely. Mixed media on paper 10×8 inches (25×20 cm).
Well, actually, we never lived in a blue house. But my neighbour has recently painted his fences and BBQ shelter in this shade of blue – and it looks very nice. So maybe a repainting job on my side of the fence is needed… Though it is easier to see and admire on the next door property and save the effort!
Image measures approx. 8 x 10 inches (20×25 cm).
Can two be a procession? You have to imagine the rest! I just fell in love with the tiny figure on the right who appeared out of nowhere.
This is one of my pictures for the Tunbridge Wells International Art Fair 24-26 June 2016 (to be shown there by Redleaf Gallery).
The image is 8×10 inches (20×25 cms) approx. and is a mixed media painting.
A strange lady, a strange pet – but they get on!
Some lovely person liked it enough to purchase it! I think that person is a good vibes character.
Now, come on! Which of you ate those toes?
Another weird fantasy set of creatures pulled out of random marks.
She holds her dummy close even while she isn’t speaking. An unlikely subject which appeared out of my collage. Image 10×8 inches (25×20 cm).
But who cares. If you like it, wear it.
Sadly I started this 10×8 inch picture on too many varieties of oriental tissue so it was impossible to flatten it out – hence the wrinkles that persist! Otherwise I was pleased with it!
This is just the beginning of the piece. At lesson 23, the year’s work is nearly done. It’s been brilliant! Year of the Spark has followed Year of the Fairy Tale – both with Carla Sonheim. This year Lynn Whipple has provided half the lessons. Super mix of talents.
Next year it will be Y is for Yellow. Watch this space…
Is she blushing or having a quiet cough in the wings? Quirky figure collage. Image measures 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm).
