Some vibrant colour for the start of winter!
Two wooden panels each 50cm sq
Two paintings today, both with underpainting in bright red and orange, but surface colours mostly blues
This one is my regular size, 80 cm sq
Title :’All manner of things I’ll never understand’
This is a big one, 160cm x 220 cm, unstretched canvas, stapled to the studio wall. ‘Is there anyone there?’
This is ‘Evening walk, Cruit Island’
A large signature piece, on canvas, framed
This is an even larger piece, ‘Due West’
Approximately 150 x250 cm it will make a dramatic statement
These 2 above are ‘Stateside 1’ and ‘Stateside 2’
Each 120cm square on canvas

I have been away from home, visiting family and being a Granny in Wales, for two months, as well as a ten day break in Portugal
So I’ve been away from my studio and not painting
During the last couple of weeks I have begun to crave paint and canvas. So I bought a few materials from local shops and made these two small works on the floor in my daughter’s spare bedroom. In between visits, and in between layers, they’ve been drying in the shed.
My bedroom at my daughter’s home has sliding doors out onto the garden, with views into the trees beyond. And a view out of the side windows to a stand of Scotch Pines. From my bed I can see both dawn and dusk through these trees.
The paintings are not at all a representation of these photos of views. In fact they have more of an essence of a walk in the woods. I even embedded a fern leaf in the paint, removed it the next day to leave its impression, then rolled over it again with more layers.
However, some of the colours are there. A friend of mine said of these two latest pieces that they were a return for me of a ‘confident enigma’. I like that
Just had confirmation that my work will be shown in the Show House at the Ideal Home Show at the RDS in Dublin at the end of October
This painting plus some others
