Cold Wax Book

I get so many questions about Cold Wax Medium ( which I use in all my paintings)

Well here is your opportunity to find all the answers

A new book is being published by Rebecca Crowell and Jerry McLaughlin and if you’re quick you could join the campaign and pick up some great perks – maybe you’d like an advance signed copy of the book?

I’m off to Portugal!
Dreaming of bluest skies and whitest sand
Remembering journeys of childhood and ‘Are we nearly there yet?’ & ‘Can I have an icecream’

Footnote: I was given a fabulous book on #RichardDiebenkorn for my 60th birthday. I am enthralled by his famous shifts from abstraction to figuration and back again, and am particularly drawn to his paintings with human and animal forms ambiguously appearing within his landscapes.
The curvaceous shapes in these clouds seemed to appear initially by their own volition, but of course I then exaggerated them. Maybe also with Matisse in mind. And someone said maybe a nod to Magritte too! Haha! Good company 🙂

Ready to go

Hoping to get these 4 framed locally here in Wales. My fingers are firmly crossed that some or all of them will then be sent to Terre Verte gallery in Cornwall for  ‘ Into the West’, the summer group show I have been invited to participate in there
