An Inch a Day


I’m setting myself a challenge, because it seems every time I settle down to some artwork, writing, singing, something throws the proverbial spanner in the works. Over the past two weeks, the culprit has been Microsoft and its Windows 10 Upgrade. Continue reading

Forces and Energies at Work on my Worktable: (Subtitle: At Last – A Breakthrough)


4×4 Canvasses – EncausticisedThe image here is of six, out of a suite of twelve, 4″ square deep canvasses, to which I’ve added a top layer of plaster cloth (Mod Roc). I’ve then added layers of clear encaustic medium and to some, yellow ochre and indian red oil paints (wiped on then wiped off) white encaustic medium and soy bean wax, blending and fusing the layers as I’ve gone, with a hot gun.

Arthouse Coop Sketchbook Tour 2015: An Accidental Technique


With the deadline in 4 days to get this off to New York, I’m as usual, going to be working right up to the line. I must have a thing for dangerous edges. No wonder I fall off cliffs.

Eclipses, Bloodlines and Blood Moons


My visual journal entry to mark the week. A week of eclipses (two). I’m using blackish tones in this little piece. One black obscuring another. The brownish-black squares are the front and back of two used (blackcurrant?) teabags from my ever-increasing stash. Square black moons placed over another used teabag – of green tea and it’s yellow-white. There’s two semi-circles pencilled-in at the bottom of the top moon and the top of the bottom moon. I’m going to stick these with the tea-dyed embroidery cotton that rests under the red line. This is a bit of red recycled sari silk. It represents a bloodline. It weaves right across and separates the landscapes of the two suns and around the top of one of a growing collection of black round stones I am digging up at the allotment. Broken open, they are red. It may be bloodstone. Gem buffs out there, help me. I’m calling this a blood moon. Continue reading

A Winter Hexagon


One of my preoccupations these days – hexagons. This eco print hexagon made me think constellation.

Procyon is in the Canis Minor constellation. Pollux is in the Gemini constellation and is a giant orange star. Continue reading

“Panel 5 x 7 With Surface Treatment and Border 14 November 2013Then there was the puzzle of why the sun came out during the day, instead of at night when the light would come in useful.” Terry Pratchett: Mort

A bit of light relief today as I want to spend time today progressing these two canvas-board panels. Continue reading
