SKETCHES OF ST NICHOLAS CHURCH WELLS NEXT THE SEA
quick sketch from the roadside over stone wall showing 2 of the 5 clerestory windows.
New floor tiling in the chancery
St Nicholas statue
Yesterday I went to the framers to collect my 3 oil paintings - very pleased with result - all the same to make united hanging with the frame like a gunmetal grey with hints of dark purple, smooth slightly curved. I then went onto Wells next the Sea to see my contemporary textured floral works hanging in the gallery there. Absolutely delighted as they (all 7) were in the main gallery room hung with my special price cards depicting the raison d'etre for their creation, such as ' ORCHIDS ON NUTMEG - The second in the spice series came from a white orchid plant given to me by an artist friend. Nutmeg inspired the background colours and little touches of lime and apricot break the quiet mood and keep in touch with the culinary theme.' I think it makes the price tag more interesting - dont you?
My images posted above were due to a quick visit to the town parish church of St Nicholas. Cant say the sketch of part of the outside was very good - but then that wall borders the A149 main road!! Pleased with the St Nicholas statue - patron saint of fishermen. The new floor tiling was a delightful design and full of colour and only laid in more recent times. Made a complete change from all the oil painting Ive been doing lately.
