This is another nice big one that I’ve just finished…. ‘Valerian at Lulworth Cove’ I’m really pleased with the colours of this one – the turquoise sea and pink flowers are my favourite! I hope you like it! I love visiting Lulworth Cove and especially having a Chai Latte from the cafe on the beach…. So lovely and so lucky to live so close by.
A friend and I had fun taking photos of some of my new paintings. We created a summer vibe which didn’t quite match up with the rain and wind that was going on outside. It was fun though and I quite like the images…
I’ve been working on a selection of large harbour paintings lately. I’ve spent a lot of my life walking around beautiful coastal towns so it seems like an obvious choice for a new batch of work. Some of the paintings have already gone to Azure in Sidmouth but I am hoping to keep creating more as they sell!
This is a painting of a walk I love to do with the dog and because I can just about manage the whole walk with the pushchair. It’s mainly passable on the track around the woods. It was a walk I did a lot when we weren’t able to travel far away from home during Covid. It has special memories for me as my second son Olly was born 3 years ago at a very strange time and it gave me peace being amongst the trees and nature with him.
I’ve just delivered 3 big paintings down to Azure Gallery in Sidmouth. One is this floral painting which my son is standing in front of. He is also holding a new Regatta painting which has also been sent to the gallery. These usually sell pretty quickly so I’m hoping to get some more painted soon.
Wishing you all the best for the New Year ahead! It’s been a successful Christmas for us and we have thankfully all stayed well. This year I am planning on creating lots of lovely new work where and when I get a chance. My second child Olly will be 2 in March and Toby 5 in June. They are so lovely but as a full time Mum take up most of my hours in each day! I do my best to create around them but feel over the next few years I will be able to grab more time for myself and my work. Thank you for all the support and to everyone that has purchased work from me over the years. I can’t describe how worthwhile it makes my life feel when something I have created goes into someone’s home to add colour and interest to their homes. X
I’ve recently completed a few commissions which I really enjoyed doing and it’s always exciting to see the end result. I’ve just started a large scale piece (the biggest canvas I have ever worked on) I’ve put down the base colour and now I’ve got to add the detail and floral foreground which I love doing the most. X
