Beach Beads!

The autumn sun is out and I’ve just noticed the glass beads I made a few years ago!  Inspired by our local beaches!

As slow as sycamore seeds thrown from skyrise windows
Our hearts soar and fly then eventually grow
On the winds of whim we hover then fall
Cast to the dirt
Along concrete verges we flow
Away from our dreams of yesterday
Then down to realities vaults
Gone are summers where we used to play
Tears arisen from the sum of our faults


A little experiment with Lands End!

Just an experiment with colour and shapes, an acrylic painting on gesso panel 440 x 560mm A loose painting inspired by a wonderful photo by Liam Alford Photography on Instagram. This image is of Lands End in Cornwall, I particularly like the stone cold and neon cheap light in this picture typical of cloudy coastal scenes at this time of year. Oh I also have a little art assistant to! Stanley Brown our new Tabby!

Morwenstow to the sea.

A painting, acrylic on 1000 x 700mm canvas, inspired from a walk along the North Coast of Cornwall near Worwenstow, part of the Southwest Coast Path. Very difficult to get the right colours under house lighting and the overall image is much softer, with that said it is now finished. Morwenstow is certainly worth a visit and post covid will have a rather quaint tearoom to relax there too, it was recently featured in the latest series of Cornwall by Rick Stein.
