A point of view
This month I’ve been taking part in Warwickshire Open Studios at Warwick Museum. One of the fascinating things about creating something for people to look at, is taking a step back and watching them look at it. People get in close, discuss the painting, some even touch the surface. I overhear snippets of conversation about what the piece means to them – it triggers a memory of a holiday somewhere years ago, or a place they used to live, or just “a joyful feeling” said someone. I love that people connect with particular shapes and colours and create their own stories.
I’ve so far seen several pieces go off to new homes, including two of my favourites: ‘I knew I’d go back one day’ (68x87cm, mixed media on board) and Golden Thread 1 (33x33cm, mixed media on board) which I’m over the moon about. I have one final day of Open Studios remaining – so if you’re in the Warwick area, or fancy a trip out to this historic market town, I’ll be showing my work at Warwick Museum this coming Saturday (29 June) from 10am-5pm. Please drop by and say hello!
In other news, I’m delighted to announce that I have new gallery representation. You can now find my work at Wychwood Art Gallery. The piece below has already found a new home through the gallery!
“Feels like summer”. Mixed media on canvas 52×62 cms.
If you’d like to find out more about any of the pieces on my website, please drop me a line.
Till next time,
