A new year – and hope springs eternal…

Time to start choosing which pictures to enter in the digital round of some exhibitions. Which pictures, which exhibitions, how much can I afford?

The man in the park

Hurrah! This one got into the RWS Contemporary Watercolour which opens 2nd March at Bankside, London, through 14th March. (Watercolour is loosely interpreted in this competition!)

When the wind blows

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.

When the wind blows

Image is 8×10 inches (20×25.5 cm). It emerged like many of my paintings from a random start.

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!

And now: tote bags!

Do visit and see my pictures on tote bags  – I am thrilled with the look of them. You can adjust the placement of the artwork, or make it smaller – just click the one you like to see the possibilities. (Copyright line on this example won’t be on the bag!)
