MY THIRD DAY AS A BLOGGER



I'll keep to posting images of my textured, layered acrylics but this time I thought I might show you a couple of my MAGIC GARDEN SERIES. The second painting above sold at the OPEN STUDIOS EVENT in Cambridgeshire - in fact it was in the event catalogue and brought a number of people to my studio to buy it. Fortunately I had created a series and so managed to sell a few. They are 16 x 16 inches square box canvas and show my love of colour and gardens. They were created after a lot of experimentation of applying the paint layer upon layer.

Love the bottom one Joan, I remember these well. Shame the photographs fail to show all the wonderful texture.

I've never been able to paint flowers
or gardens as an artist. Just surfing
the blog ocean and came across your art. Wonderful paintings.

I can see why these sold! They remind me of Joseph Raphael's work - big, detailed, beautiful paintings that you want to put your nose up to and see the little surprises :)
