Highworth Roaring 20's MayDay Market


I will be participating in this event this Saturday. It will be outdoors so hopefully-fingers crossed, it won't be a wash out and we will have glorious sunny weather. If you are in the area or fancy a trip over, come and say hello. I might even be inspired to dress up for the occasion.
Bye for now.

New Painting...


Here is a look at a new painting I've started. This is the background so far, but I need to wait till the acrylics dry a bit more to add more paint in certain areas. Its for an exhibition which is coming up and I don't have much time before I need to hand it it. Hopefully it will be ready...I'll be in touch.
Bye for now.

The Blank Canvas...


What is it about a blank canvas that sends shivers down artists' spines?
It does to me at least. I had a chat with a fellow artist yesterday about this phenomenon and she shared the same sort of dread that I do in approaching a white blank canvas.
Why is it so intimidating? 
For me, its about making that "first mark", I want it to be "right", "perfect"; sometimes it about "committing to something"  and will that be "okay". 
I could go on and on but I won't bore you-
Have any of you felt this way before? What are your thoughts on "the blank canvas"? What is your approach?
Bye for now.

Reception Photos...

I was away last week so I hadn't had a chance to post photos of the Artsite Associate Artists Spring Exhibition 2014 reception until now. Here are a few-
Me and one of my paintings in the show.
 The second painting with the two women is also one of my paintings.

The exhibition closes this Saturday, 19th April. I will be at the gallery this Thursday from 1:30-4pm and also Friday from 11-2pm if you want to stop by and say hello.
Bye for now.

Welcome April!

Happy 1st April everyone! Spring paid us a nice visit today, bringing us some sun and warmer weather.
I hope it lasts... it made me think of flowers. Here is some "eye candy" to put you in the mood.

Bye for now.
