Progression

‘Osprey Island’ mixed media coloured pencil painting. 71cm square

Sometimes I come to the end of the process and I wonder how on earth I got here. It is a little like the pictures themselves. Long long walks up hills, down valleys and jumping on flat stones to cross streams. A variety of music playing in my head. Stories of happiness and tragedy in the news and hearing about peoples lives on the radio. Thoughts about my life and of those I love. Then, I look up and there before me, is the destination. But when to stop and enjoy the view. I have to decide when to sit down and do no more.

I’ll turn this one around so I can’t see it for a week before deciding whether the journey is complete.

A few weeks on: I entered this piece in this year’s Hunters Hill Art Exhibition and Prize and it was chosen as a finalist to hang in this year’s exhibition. How happy am I 😀👏🏻💃. For details about this exhibition please go to the news section of this blog.

    • Thanks so much Denise. I owe so much of what I do to listening to music (all types). It seems to help me get and stay in the rhythm. I should be thin as a stick with all the tapping of feet that goes on in my studio.
