lovely feedback on my art cards, the cards have been spreading love and colour and bringing joy for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and to wish a speedy recovery.
This is a detail from today’s new painting, it was such a beautiful day shimmering with light, so Harlequin is dancing with Columbina in shimmering metallics and vibrant autumn colours.
Just a little bit of extra detail today and the addition of the playful little dolphin. Nearly finished I think…
Here are three details of the picture, not necessarily in the right order. I will post each day that I work on this picture, with a reveal when it is completed with a video of the completed piece, I am not sure when it will be completed definitely by Friday, but it might be before, so keep checking the blog for updates . It is painted in acrylics but I might add a bit of pastel for extra drama
I thought how can I show you the whole picture and then I thought of video, once it is framed I will photograph the whole picture.Hope it brightens us what has been and continues to be a very difficult time for us all
Here is the left side of my painting….. the whole of the picture tomorrow . This one has evolved and is now a celebration of love. it is influenced by the colours of the rainbow and the light and sometimes the crock of gold at its end. Usually any riches worth having our those that are free and given with love.
On a rainfilled day I thought that a burst of rainbow colours would remind us of days full of colour. I am working on this painting and it is not quite finished, but I thought it might be interesting for you to see it evolve. This is the right side of the painting, I will feature the left tomorrow and the whole of the picture on Friday.
in these strange days, when life is not a walk in the park, the things we usually take for granted and that we are still able to enjoy are so precious, a walk in the park is one of them. The feeling of the wind in your hair, the flushed cheeks the trees, the birds singing. The painting reminds me of the wonderful film A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood or rather Neighborhood as its American. It stars the superlative Tom Hanks as Lloyd Vogel and Matthew Rhys ( also excellent) as a cynical journalist . If you feel downcast I recommend this film it is heartwarming and gentle, reminding us that thinking of others and caring about them is a priceless gift .It was directed by Marielle Heller with the lightest of touch when it was over I wanted to watch it again. So think of others and offer your care and support particularly now when we all need it the most.

this is a detail from my painting Electricity inspired by that fantastic song from Billy Eliott in another part of the painting is a dancer like Billy, finding freedom through dancing to express joy. I will dance anywhere especially in the kitchen when I do my version of tap dancing
