Wow what a big upheaval, 6 weeks of changing my studio, I’ve allowed myself in to work at last! I wanted things to be finished before I moved back in. Saying that, there is still a few things I’d like to give attention but they are not obstructive.
I uncovered some old textile work in the big sort out and thought I might be able to use it for a call to artists I’m considering.
Adding some more colour to it on my table and considering adding organic Items.
The decision to turn it into an artists book was suggested to me and I liked that idea. 🙂
Keep watching to see how it takes shape!
This is my second finished gesso relief, you may remember it from a recent blog although it looked a little different then. I’m looking to experiment a lot more with this technique, but I’m very pleased with how this piece has turned out, now just to varnish it 🙂
Second plaster/gesso experiment using one of my own lino blocks.
Discovered that it’s quite hard to get the impressions level, but I like the result.
Just got to think about colour now! 🙂
Here is my main piece for Turn The Page artists book Fair. It was inspired by my painting I have now called ’32 Triangles’.
A limited edition of 32 Tulip fold books, each containing a miniature signed print of the original painting. (12 displayed at one time)
In the humidity of the exhibition the books opened slightly and showed their content.
A wonderful time was had by all at the exhibition which was held in the Forum, Norwich.
I’m just loving collage at the moment so here’s another for you to see.
‘The Green Cockatoo’
This collage was built on an old water colour that I got with a few others in a job lot at a church sale (I have left the original signature and just added mine). It adds to the surreal nature when magazine cuttings etc are applied. I’m really happy with this 🙂
Well, flamingo’s seem to be the order of the day!
I’ve been working on some flamingo themed artwork and products and this collage is one of my first pieces. I am very pleased with him and he seems to be becoming a springboard for some other work. I especially like the way the foil paper I’ve used on his neck takes on the look of his feathers 🙂I am pleased to say there is beginning to be some flamingo related work for sale in my online shop, for example the writing paper set below. 🙂
