It is starting to get cooler here in Wales, not that it got very hot at all this summer! Still, I love autumn and winter and last night we had the log burner on for the first time in months. Here is my latest watercolour "Winter 1" it is 20x20cm, it is one of a series of "wood" paintings I am working on, inspired by our little part of Wales. Have a great weekend!
I have recently opened an Etsy shop to sell my work. Please consider browsing for yourself or for presents for art lovers. The painting above is a mini 8x8, it was recently sold to a collector who named it "Amanda". Here is my shop link:
Spring has sprung in Wales, the sun has been shining and it has been surprisingly warm which is just lovely :-) I thought I would share a couple of new pieces in one of my favorite formats - small and square. I have always encouraged people to own art - original art, direct from the artist - and these little gems sell out at my workshops.
I am very much aware that this blog has not received much attention from me lately and for that I apologise. 2014 was rather overshadowed by our move to Wales which took the whole of 2014 to happen what with 3 sale chains falling through and the stress created having a major effect on me. However, our move finally happened at the end of January and we are now living in beautiful rural Wales.
I have a lovely large studio here and will be able to offer opportunities for you to come and paint with me. I am also going back to Sweden in August and to France in September for workshops - please see my website for details.
Last year I had the opportunity of being trained by Golden Artist Colors and I am now a certified Golden Artist Educator. I am really enjoying experimenting with the array of Golden Mediums and luscious acrylic paint, it really is like being a kid in a sweetshop!
Over the next few months I shall be painting to my hearts content, getting ready for the annual Ceredigion Art Trail that takes place in August when my studio will be open to visitors. I will also endeavor to update this blog a little more often!
Here are a couple of my most recent available works, they are all minis at 8x8cm :
