Accepted!


My painting 'Half Full' has been accepted for the annual exhibition of West Norfolk Artists Association, which runs from today until 6th Aug at St Nicholas Chapel in King's Lynn. A sale would be SO nice!


Feeling uninspired yesterday, I came across Jean Haines July challenge and had a go. I'm not sure it counts as it is done with oil paint rather than watercolour. It kept me entranced for a couple of hours, though.

I've been tiddling this up this week. At least, not being motivated to paint anything else has made me finish this!

Portraits


Half Full  20" x 16" Oil




Adolescent  30" x 40"  Oil



Paramedic  18" x 24" Acrylic





David Lee  18" x 24" Acrylic


I have delivered paintings for selection (hopefully) to West Norfolk Artists Associations' annual exhibition. One lady commented on the portrait..'Half Full'....and said I had obviously been doing it awhile. I came straight home to compare!
The only really early one I have is 'Adolescent', painted with a very limited palette....red, blue and white. The other two were painted in 2004-2005 ish. I remember thinking they were all fantastic....at the time! Not sure I have progressed very far.

Well, I plucked up the courage to add the second figure. And I'm very pleased with the result!
