Where dreams come true and new art
A new painting which I’ve named Where dreams come true. Really enjoyed working on this which has been in the making for some months along with a number of other paintings all themed around water in one way or another. Now that I have a new art studio, thank you to Bob for building it, I’ve got the space to be messy and not put anything away 🙂
So this year I’m concentrating on painting in patterns and many translucent layers. I am a bit obsessed with water although not totally fixed on it as do enjoy trying to capture the tangle of wild flowers but I want to explore textures and abstract patterns that water and its many reflections create from the dapples above to the underwater world below.
Tropical close up
A close up of Tropical who as from Sunday 13th has a new home. Tropical is part of the little BIG garden collection. I loved painting this and have used impasto technique for the leaves and the flowers I used a watercolour ground to give them a very different effect and to top some of the flowers, I’ve added black lava and 23karat gold leaf.
Painted on a natural linen canvas using various techniques with acrylic, watercolours, iridescent inks, black lava and gold leaf. It’s quite a striking painting and sort of glows at the top when the light catches it. It’s 91.5cms x 91.5cms

I’ve got 4 little garden Arty Tote Bags (41csms) and 2 larger ones (46cms) in blue which are taken from The Tube and Sunkissed and would make great beach bags.
