...at Quacks!

Recently I have been getting very excited by mono printing and fish and birds. Also being let loose in the comp room at Quacks is a delight. Having the run of all the old wooden letter blocks.

My life as an artist goes through weird phases. If anyone asked me what are you working on I would say mono prints of fish and birds, hand printing of letters, a four foot painting of birds which is too big to get in my car so I am figuring out who owns a van in the village to get the piece to the framers. All the other paintings are in my head and sketchbook and there is never enough time because there are all those other life things that have to be done.

My husband has persuaded me to go sailing for two weeks in October. I will be prepared. I am taking acrylic paint paper which means I can paint at sea. Hopefully they will be something other than blue I am going to record the entire trip visually. A painting a day. This is a challenge because usually all I can see is blue sea and blue sky. I cant believe I am going away when I have three Christmas exhibitions to prepare for. This is down to the persuasive powers of a man. Therefore EVERYTHING must be prepared and at the framers for next week and Mail chimp newsletter out.

Really enjoyed painting this commission of Rosedale. Commissions are a great opportunity to hone painterly skills. In some ways I really liked the simplicity of the early stages but it had to be taken further and the brief was lots of warm colour.

Someone once sent me a little saying in an anonymous ‘share a special part of a poem with a stranger’ project.
It went something like this...

In the darkest part of the dark night - the light comes.

At the time I tossed it to one side dismissively as somehow not coming up to the mark in the profundity I was seeking.

However, it stayed with me and came to mind again when I made the arduous journey from ‘Helmsley Walled Garden’ to ‘Falling Cups’.
