Out and about

Summer in France is always busy,the bustle of visitors for workshops and often just to stay and be social for a week or so. The need to step out of village life becomes a must and so we head for the mountains, woods,rivers, waterfalls and lakes all stretching away into the distanced leaving life behind. Today at Lac de Lampy i found myself lying in the shade of a sweet chestnut tree and watching the butterflies break the dappled sunlight over my head. All around me were sticks and bits of…

Its dark outside, the heat of the day has settled into the cool of the night and with all the lights turned of except one I lay out a canvas. Been here before, many times, different places, seasons, emotions. Waiting to begin, savouring the moment and in doing so recognizing it for what it is. A meditative connective with myself and the outside, the real fix, creation and expression. Today i am that much more than…


Spur of the moment

Late at night ,doors open to the garden and listening for the first time to a  musical recommendation of a friend. I am painting a sea picture,again,always!!.  All is going well and for a moment i am too absorbed in the act and reach out for a tube of Prussian Blue, the heat of the day has made the paint more fluid than normal and as i squeeze gently onto the canvas it all goes wrong. In slow motion a dollop of BLACK paint spurts out and i freeze. Lucky for me i am in slow motion so time is…


Here i go again

Stephen, thanks for your nice comment on my abstract.  Others have said the same thing, that it reminds them of an insect.  I struggled with it for years and finally gave up and decided that it would be finished.  Not finished in a very polished way, but finished!   Add me as a friend if you wish.

Thank you so much for the friendrequest, I am happy to be on your friendslist. I love your silkpaintings they are so happy, colourful and a great inspiration. I haven't painted for almost two years now..Just last week I started my first painting after all that time, I 'm not finished, just a nice colourful start, and right now I also don't know if and what to put in more...but I am painting again, ^_^.
