Blogging wise it has been rather quite here in the build up to xmas, that’s because all of the paintings i was working on were in fact gifts and so obviously i couldn’t publish them. So here is a backlog of paintings. / /./.
The first wave was a fresh new batch of xmas pigeons, this time with a festive slant i have become only slightly obsessed by snow flakes. ./
The second wave of paintings was a set of portraits../. not something you’d associate with me.. and furthermore they were both painted on canvas./. another thing you would not associate with me. It s always a good thing to take my self out of my usual sphere of working, both of the canvases were still reclaimed and recycled and i feel like despite working from photographs i managed to inject plenty of Belbin hallmarks to the pieces.
And the final piece was, given the more soppy themes of my painting the most important as it was for my fiance .. . /
It was based a short story held close to her heart and a running theme though our long relationship ‘The Snow Goose’
‘Fritha’ Acrylic, Spray Paint and Posca on reclaimed hardboard and Plywood
