Feeling Connected

With Zoom meetings and telephone calls instead of face-to-face meetings, we have all managed to stay connected with work, friends and family. My painting is a celebration of how technology has made all this possible and brightened lives during a very stressful time

Time for Tea

A new painting, this time in watercolour. The panacea for all bad news in the UK is a cup of tea. This year we’ve enjoyed some lovely cream teas and it’s one of life’s small pleasures. In my painting, the girl on the left is being comforted having received some unwanted news but the teapot […]

The Embrace

This oil painting is more abstract than some of my past paintings but very enjoyable to do. I decided that although it is only 30 x 30cm I would do it in oils to keep the vibrancy of the colours plus I love the smell of the paint. It was so hot today the paint […]

Before we forget our summer holidays….

Just in case it feels as if warmth and sunshine are in the distant past, I have finished this painting to celebrate and remind us how it feels to be warmed by the sun. I shall have this painting and others that I have completed this year on stand 47 at the Art Fair in […]

Lovely new set of pastel crayons

I treated myself to a new set of 40 pastel pencils and tried them out on ribbed pastel paper. Interesting effect. I’ve called these two sketches, “What was that?” 1 & 2. I think in the current climate of economic uncertainty using creative time to experiment seems a good idea – less pressure on trying […]

3 new paintings

I have painted these three paintings for the ¬†Society of Women Artists’ 158th Annual Exhibition in London. Although the exhibition is not until 24th Sept., I need to submit them by Sat. 27th July so it was full steam ahead on the painting front. The first is called “Sunkissed nose and sandy toes” 55x55cm Acrylic […]

KISS

When I started to work out the composition for some new paintings this year, I was reminded of that very useful piece of advice when it comes to communication – KISS. (keep it simple, stupid). Having spent an enjoyable day at the London Art Fair, I was struck by how effective some of the simpler […]

Amorous Aries

The third in my Zodiac series. Aries are independent leaders and shamelessly flirty. …….I think I know one or two of those. Acrylic on wood 30 x 30cm. On 20th & 21st October I will be on stand 61 at the Landmark Centre in Teddington for their Autumn Art Fair. My three new Zodiac paintings […]

2nd painting in the Zodiac Series

My second painting in this series is called “Loving the company of Leo”. Leo people are warm and affectionate and can be counted on to bring sunshine into other people’s lives. They are, however, used to being the king of the jungle so to be the companion of a Leo you need to know your […]
