Flying 20" x 16" Oil

WA day today and I had a wonderful, splendid afternoon. This was one of those that just flows from the brush with no thought involved and I love it when that happens. And then I had some lovely, very encouraging, comments from my friends and fellow artists. And to top it all....we had cake!

Hello Lizard Acrylic on Wood

WA today, where the brief was to paint on stones, flower pots....anything but paper or canvas.
This idea didn't work very well. Maybe I should have sanded down the part I wanted paint on, as the ridges are too distracting.
I discovered on Monday that there is to be an exhibition locally, to be held next week! Needless to say I have been sorting like crazy and have put 10 paintings together. It is a shame as I have so many pictures, not many frames, and the ones I have don't fit the pictures! Even if Roy had his workshop there is no time. No time to hoover the carpet either, obviously!
Looking forward to it and it has been good to have a purpose.

Not Waving 16" x 20" Oil

Not Waving but Drowning, a poem by Stevie Smith, and this is a line that has stayed with me for years. How easy it is to misinterpret words and actions, to believe something that is not true, to see something that is not there, to have secrets........

No one can KNOW what is in anothers mind. So what is this painting about? If you can tell me, you can have it.

Shoreline 24" x 18" Oil

WA day, today. Because we have booked a gallery to stage a group exhibition in September, every other week is dedicated to working on paintings for said exhibition. We shall be needing about 60 paintings to fill the space! So no theme today.
The picture I wanted to paint refused to print so I grabbed this on my way out of the door, which you may remember I posted as a WIP back in November. Maybe I would never have finished this if it weren't for a temperalmental printer! Maybe it still isn't!
