new work - last week of March
a new miniature embroidery artwork
measuring 11.7cm x 10cm I am sure you may appreciate the tiny detailing and intricate nature of this piece - stitched using my basic machine as a drawing tool..... I have enjoyed seeing the new blossoms in my neighbourhood and was inspired to stitch this work as a celebration of spring. I like the expression of the folk figures singing in this piece.
two still life works
on the left is: home for tea and the painting in the right is song thrush jug. They are both gouache on Canson Heritage paper and measure 16cm x 12cm and 18cm x 13cm..... I have painted birds on jugs and other ceramic vessels for years and years - it is something I enjoy. I like how they are captured in a moment of peacefulness and yet lend extra life to a still life. Hope that makes sense!
anemones and pagoda cup
I must admit to being particularly pleased with this painting - something about the colours and I was a little nervous about painting the anemones because I don't consider myself a 'flower painter' - yet I enjoyed the process and really got into it - I think listening to the right piece of music and going with the flow helps when painting.... This work measures 22.8cm x 17.7cm - so quite a bit larger than the two above
These and more in my shop tomorrow (Wednesday) at 7pm UK time - thanks always
