What a week

And I just mean in my studio!

I have been reworking some old canvases and completely repainting some too

These 2 above are each 80cm sq


Here they are with another one the same size and a 65cm one on the end


Here’s a bigger reworked piece

120cm plus it’s frame also painted over



Here’s a fuller view of my favourites (today anyway) – with a sort of invasion of pink


This one and the last one below are a bit odd, and maybe not totally successful. But they were an important challenge for me in terms of structure, form and process. Each 80 cm plus frame

residency at Stiwdio Maelor in CorrisĀ 


A great 3 weeks at Stiwdio Maelor

If you are interested in having some time there yourself for your art (including writing) you can email for an application form to stiwdiomaelor@gmail.com 

The 5 paintings in the top image are all also available through the same email. Funds from any sale of donated works goes both towards the ongoing costs of the residency programme and helps to fund the artist’s next residency!

The other image is of a 65cm painting on canvas that I completed on the residency which is on its way to @greenfusegallery  in Westport, County Mayo, Ireland for their next show opening mid November

On paper

Run out of canvases and only a week to go at Stiwdio Maelor – so I’m playing on paper

Series of smaller pieces worked together – 6 bits of sugary sweetness! Largest 2 are half sheets of Arches ie 56 x 38cm

‘All things nice… raspberry ripple?’
2 half sheets Arches – each 56 x 38cm

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
