mounting the stones

between clearing my studio rubbish ( well actually Malachy is doing that, thank you ♥) and actually painting, I have been thinking about how I am going to display all this new work. Many of the new Ceide Fields Stones series paintings are very textured and would benefit from NOT being distanced behind glass. So I think I am goung to mount them on panels. There are 15 that Ibwant to do this way, so I might need a mortgage!
The small 6 x 8″ maplike pieces are on paper and have rather irregular edges,mm so I think they will have to be behind glass, but I am hoping to work out a simple design that doesnt overwhelm them

Here are 4 of the ones that I definitely think should be on panels

  1. I do love these Liz, especially the last one with the two yellow circles, very ethereal yet of the earth! I don’t have your email but was wondering if you’d be interested in joining in a ‘Blog Hop’ – a worldwide blogging event in which invited artists post answers to 4 questions about their work and processes? If you are, please email me on info@marifrench.com for more details.
    Yours would need to be posted on 12th December, and I’ll understand if you’re not able at this time of year. 🙂

    • thanks so much Joy, I think collecting pebbles on the beach or wherever seems to have a universally relaxing appeal. These stones paintings, and loads more, are part of a series that have grown out of my recent visit to Ceide Fields in North Mayo ,Ireland, where about 50 miles of 5 thousand year old field boundary walls have been discovered beneath the peat bog
