As some of my artwork has many layers to it, I like to work on a few pieces at a time while I am waiting for them to dry. Here are four paintings I am working on at the moment. I am hoping to work on a larger piece next week.
These two artworks are made in a similar way with two different themes, one shows Marie Antoinette spending time in her garden at Le Petit Trianon and the other shows Crazy horse, he was at one with his horse when he went into battle. The text is from the Abba song S.O.S about love coming to an end. I thought this was appropriate for these two painting of these historical figures who both died at 37 years of age.

I have been working in the beautiful sunshine today. I have nearly finished my new painting True Colours (2) Mixed Media on found frame. I have added some stripes of oil glazes in various colours that work well as glazes as they are translucent. These stripes add another dimension to the artwork and create depth (well I hope they do) Hope you are all enjoying the glorious weather today.
Here is my new mixed media artwork of The Green Man, Back to reality. I have used pages from the book The diary of an Edwardian lady by Edith Holden for the back ground as it has such beautiful handwriting. The face is hand painted in oil. I have used images from a book on roses and also a book on moths and butterflies.
Start of new drawing which will carry on with the anatomical motifs. I have used the head of Rick Genest and will be finishing the anatomical part of the body. I was inspired by the drawings of Alphonse Mucha and will be using an art deco motif for the background. I will be using decouage along with a nature theme, which will consist of drawings of roses, butterflies and moths.
