Mellow September

September is my favourite month.

My birthday.

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

It’s partner...

Oils and cold wax medium on 8x8 canvas.

When I look across the fields around our home 
these colours are everywhere.


Detail from a larger picture...

Rose hips, Rowan berries, apples and blackberries.
Sun streaking across the stubble fields.
It’s a glorious time.

Making plans...

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.

Louth Exhibition 

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.
