A new departure! Hoping to find extra painting delights in this layered way of working based on the real but ending up far from it. This painting on panel is for sale on Singulart.
A picture with a looming factory waiting to gobble the workers up. Hope they enjoy the musical interlude!
This painting is for sale on Singulart.
I think the world is cockeyed at present so this is pretty normal!

Allotments come in all sorts of sizes and states of tidiness! There are ancient gardeners who can grow anything in tidy rows with no visible weeds, crazy plots where chickens grub up plants inside huge homemade wire cages, and the sadly neglected plots where, among the docks, nettles and couch grass, raspberries and blackberries struggle to see the light. (The currants have been gobbled up by pigeons and the lettuce by rabbits!)

A cheerful flower picture.
In rich dark colours this is a kind of version of the marina at Brighton! It would not recognise itself.
I love this gloomy piece which evolved under my eyes. My visual memory was jerked by the beginnings of the hunched up figure and I found the image I recalled in a book about Gauguin (hero!) with a photo of a Peruvian mummy. I have always loved the poem by Stevie Smith – hence the title.
Maybe all the horrifying stories of drownings in the Mediterranean influenced me as well. We can never know all the subconscious themes.

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).
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).
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!
