new painting

Taking some time off from the moshi/rainbow fairy treadmill this summer so I can work on some more paintings. I have several on the go because I have to wait for layers to dry... this is the latest just finished... Candy Floss.

Jess - new cat painting

This is my mum's cat Jess, who sadly, at the age of 20, had to be put down last week. I've been working on this painting for my mum so that she can still see her every day, and not just fake flashes from the corner of her eye...

Matilda

My lovely Matilda. She died suddenly last year and I've been mulling over this picture ever since. Nice to have her slightly evil glare looking at me every day again.

easter splat picture

First day of the holidays splat pictures by my eight year old and his friend ...
They make me think of flowers and grasses at the beach... compensating for the chilly grey weather.

New Hopper

After a very long christmas holiday, I've finally got back to some painting... My dad, a very keen photographer, has been scanning in lots of old slides from the 70s and 80s which are really fun and nostalgic. I'm kind of trying to blend the photographic images with my memory to capture that feeling of childhood. That's as descriptive or explanatory as I'm going to get. I generally hate artists' statements about their work...

This one is called New Hopper. It's 24 x 30 cm, oil on board. Next I'm going to have some fun with a huge stick of candy floss....

busy bee

Really busy with moshis and rainbow fairies et al but here is something a little bit different from the usual tweenie stuff I'm doing. My friend Jules took some photos recently that I nabbed for a book, and then he needed an illustration for an ebook he is writing. A bit of Totnes-style bartering. Makes a change from those moshis...
