Not intended (luckily!) to be a true picture of the quaint little town, this detail refers to one of the many churches, the river and boats. I loved my visits to the town and the many characters I met. The wonderful individuals, news and gossip always reminded me of those famous residents of another of the Cinque Ports: Mapp and Lucia and their doings!
Detail from a new picture.
Line + collage and collage + line!
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).
You’ve seen silly – this is sillier!
Mixed media on paper, about 8×10 inches.
Could they be gossiping? I expect so. Looks like a place where many strange things could be going on behind the closed doors.

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.
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…
A woman’s face. Her expression is sad, lost in her own thoughts maybe. An experimental collage which seems to be complete at this stage. I like it anyway!
Mixed media on paper, the image measures 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm).
One of a recent series of figures outlined with heavy black. I love the way the bright colours look like traditional stained glass. I remember dancing to this song way back… Didn’t want to offend with the real title!

I feel for this lady! Mixed media on paper, image 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm). Have a giggle!
