We live in the 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!

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).

Venetian blinds

Sun through the blinds

Is she an artist’s model? Or just a woman enjoying the warmth falling on her through the blinds which provide seclusion?

A mixed media piece with collage, contour drawing and distortion!

Last post of the year – wish it was warm enough to sit around in the nude!

Happy New Year.
