Something nice and dark today for #samhain #allhallowseve #haloween to me it’s the beginning of winter (if there were only 2 seasons) but also a time to reflect, celebrate things passed and look at what we want to take forward… the painting is called ‘we reap what we sow’ and is based on the ovid poem about Actaeon.
I have not been able to get into my studio for what seems like ages I think partly because of the clocks going back which seems to mean I am much busier trying to get things done …. so another one for #throwbackthursay a collage from a few years ago
There is always a little gathering of starlings at this time of year in the village I pass through on the way to work… this was a quick little collage based on starlings on the telephone wires, chattering away to each other 😊
Another little painting/sketch of Mulfra Quoit 😊
I am fascinated by drawing in all its forms and purposes, here I was recording at an archaeological restoration project where I also joined in with the dig, peeling back layers of time the experience will stay with me for the rest of my life the quoit at Carwynnen was reinstated after being collapsed for many years…
There is definitely something about high places and this gorgeous red of the bracken at this time of year… looking back through some landscapes…it is always this time of year or spring that i get really excited about recording its transformation…this is Mulfra Quoit in the far west of Cornwall a very special wild and windswept part of the county ❤
My #mondaymotivation was the Jackdaws along my journey to work, today 😊
Badgers on my mind again…I have just read some amazing news, a project called the Gatcomb project which really needs to be shared far and wide discovered the following ” one thing we noticed was that the only cows going down with TB were the milkers that were housed 365 days a year and never had any contact with badgers,” these beautiful persecuted creatures and our cows need a solution maybe this is it. Do look it up if you are interested it’s very interesting 🖤🦡🖤🦡🖤.
Abstract landscape with abstract bird! I must admit I like where these are going… I dont know how to describe the buzz I get when i am in my little zone in the studio, just moving things around and seeing what happens… does anyone else get this?
Looking back to some previous collaging… this one from around 5 years ago.. how time flies!
A different Starling in my abstract landscape today…
