Emily’s Flowers

A little weekend therapy with inspiration from my talented niece and her wonderful ability to arrange the most stunning flowers – thank you sweetie! Work measures: 29″ x 21″ is a mixed media piece using ink, acrylic and pastel on pre-textured paper.

Time to fail…

I have come to realise the importance of playing, failing and discovery.  Here are some of my experiments from the weekend. Some worked, some didn’t, but what was important is that I rocked up to the easel and was ready to fail; because I now realise that within that failure is inevitable discovery!

 

 

Last on the board…

All three landscapes are now finished and many learnings during the process.  Have started thinking about this weeks studies and will post as I go.  I am allowing myself short bursts of activity before and after work duties, just as I did prior to lockdown, keeps me focused and grounded – thank goodness for art in my life!

This Weeks Challenge…

The three landscape studies above were started after making small black and white studies (size of matchbox)j from several photo’s.  All very much experimental and not necessarily looking for finished pieces.  Never-the-less this first completed piece ‘Road to Patuha – II’ seems to have found it’s focus.

The first work, far left on my drawing board was posted earlier this week – the completed image below.  Link takes you to my FB page  Road to Patuha – the making.

“Orange and Blue Vase” – flowers galore!

Another painting being exhibited at my September show. I have indulged my love of ink drawing with this acrylic work. With lots of movement and colour I am sure it will bring much happiness to it’s viewers as it has for me creating it!
