Shrine at my exhibition

My recent exhibition had a shrine, which people were invited to add small items and mementos.  These objects have been collected over time and arranged to give it a religious feeling.

Studio Time

Here is my little studio. I have to work half in and half out as it is a little tiny Anderson shelter. I can’t imagine sitting in it to the sound of bombs dropping, must have been terrifying. A lot of my artwork has a camouflage theme and I was lucky to get this studio which has so much history behind it. I’ve added a porthole and door so can work inside when the weather is bad. Hope you like it!

New painting for exhibition

I have been working on a new painting for my exhibition next month, this one is based on the alfornini wedding by Jan van eyck. I have used simple outlines to portray the figures. I have used some collage and sanded it down, I will be using napkins that have been taken into one layer to lay over the top to create depth, I am yet to find them so am on the lookout. Hope you like it.
