Working on several paintings at once gives me lots of latitude with colour and experimentation. I have had the two smaller square canvasses in my studio for a few weeks now, and have really enjoyed reflecting the season with the palette. The larger painting is part of a four piece commission, titled 'High Summer'.
Just about the get out to my studio for a morning with High Summer....with autumnal rain pattering on the roof!
I have spent a weekend In London, taking part in the Artfinder Pop-up gallery in Shoreditch, London.
Artfinder are a gallery I have been fortunate enough to sell my work through since March last year. They are an online platform, this weekend included large screens where visitors could curate their own selection, as well as real live paintings. Artists also demonstrated their craft. I enjoyed this element very much, although I was slightly concerned about my paints flying everywhere as I make a mess when I work!
Altogether inspiring as well as great fun.
Field and Five Trees
One of the paintings I worked on during my artist demonstration.
I was thrilled to receive this picture of this 35x76 inch painting in situ from client Dave Goodman. He is a builder based in Edmond, Oaklahoma and commissioned this painting for one of his show-homes.
I sent it off in a protected 3mm card tube, and the owner has had it stretched. This makes carriage a lot more affordable!
I so enjoyed my few days as an exhibitor at the Brighton Art Fair. I was surrounded by interesting artists, met a lot of people, handed out my card and chatted with potential clients, sold paintings and took several commissions.
Please see below for the paintings I have been lucky enough to sell in the past four days.
