This submission for the East Norfolk Association's summer exhibition in Kings Lynn is called DANCING ON WATER. It was created with acrylic inks poured over each other with liquid diluted liquitex acrylic paint onto flat canvas sheet - a method I use when I want 'spiritually' inspired figures . Shapes appear which I then develop. It made me think of 'Walking on Water' demonstration by Jesus but more contemporary and 'dance' like - thus the title. Framed up in silver with a double white mount as if it were a watercolour painting, it measures 24 x 15 inches.

Then, of course, there is the one I have been posting as it developed - the FONT AT ST NICHOLAS. Here it is completed in its French sycamore frame.

Since my last post only been working on a commission which they do not want publicised , so thought these might be of interest. Quite pleased with the effect of the lighting in the chapel oil painting. Been preparing greetings cards from this work today for sale at the exhibition.

Love the Dancing on Water painting.
On the chapel painting the flowers jump off the canvas. Very nice work.

I especially enjoyed watching the Font painting come to life--it's wonderful to see it finished and framed. the Dancing on Water is terrific as well--very spiritual component to it.

Thank you Rob and Lottery girl. I really ought to do more of my 'spiritual' type paintings with figures but when do we have time!!!!! They are a bit of a 'lottery' (pun pun) as you never know what is going to appear to play with when you use this technique.
