September is my favourite month.
I love the mellow warmth of days relaxing into autumn.
My studio palette seems to reflect the wild tangled
hedgerows in our nature garden.
A small canvas 8x8 inches
Oils and cold wax medium on 8x8 canvas.
When I look across the fields around our home
these colours are everywhere.

Rose hips, Rowan berries, apples and blackberries.
Sun streaking across the stubble fields.
It’s a glorious time.
I am preparing my work for the
Gainsborough Artisan Fair in October.
These small abstract paintings on Arches Oil Paper
are my demonstration studies for workshops.
I use transparent oils mixed with some
cold wax medium and ‘sculpt’ the
paint on the paper. After scraping and rolling,
scribbling and scratching...a picture appears.
They can be used as pictures to frame,
or made into greetings cards.
Also, these one-off original paintings
could be hostess gifts, birthday presents
and ‘stocking fillers’ for art lovers.
A selection of small oil paintings
ready for my table at the Fair.
6 x 6 inch paintings in natural wood box frames.
On the second Saturday each month this
Artisan Fair is in the Town Hall, Lord Street,
Gainsborough from 10am to 3pm....
I have booked a table for
October, November and December.
My Show in the Riverhead Theatre Gallery
continues until the end of September.
September is a busy month
for artists and art lovers.
Until next time...
Thank you for visiting.
