It used to be so nice, It used to be so good.

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.

True colours (2) New painting

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.

Back to reality

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.
