We live in the blue house

a quirky landscape by Catherine Redmayne featuring a blue house
We live in the blue house

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).

Sweet sugar dumpling

A leaping joyous fat lady
So I’m fat – I don’t care!

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!

Lady in orange

head of woman with orange dress on blue backgroundA new addition to my monoprint portraits. This woman was on a multi-coloured collaged background but that had been painted out so the orange is set starkly against the light blue. Mixed media work with collage. Image size about 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm).

A suitable picture for Easter and spring. Hope we see the sun… Image 5.5×7.25 inches. This is a mixed media painting which I completed while following an online course with Diane Culhane. There aren’t enough hours in the day to do all the painting I want to – all such fun.

It’s available as a print, greeting card or phone case.

A monotype worked in several layers of gouache on Arches paper. The design is loosely based on a picture of an old turf cutting which is said to represent deities. It is from the Gog Magog Hills – an area steeped in tales of mysterious appearances, buried giants and ghosts. (The name ‘hills’ is slightly misleading as they are not very high: just definitely above the flat plain and therefore giving a commanding view.)

Artwork is 7.5×5.5 inches (19×14 cm).
