Commission: St Gregory’s Church

I have been commissioned to produce a work of art for St. Gregory’s Church, Wednesfield, Wolverhampton.  I wanted to base the work on stained glass and the illumination it produces.  I still wanted to use decoupage which I have incorporated with the text of Sense and Sensibility and butterflies.  I will take it to the customers later on in the week.

New painting using oil glazes.

This new artwork is an experiment with colour, the brush strokes are not important as I want to implement a technique which I can use in further artworks based on stained glass windows.  I have been using the windows of Coventry Cathedral designed by John Piper which is absolutely spectacular, for research.  I want the oil paint to be luminescent and hopefully the layers will convey some of the ideas I am trying to achieve.
