I am thrilled to be taking part in the Artists Support Pledge, a scheme set up by artist Matthew Burrows in response to the COVID19 pandemic.
How it works: The concept is a simple one. Artists post images of their work on Instagram which they are willing to sell for no more than £200 each (not including shipping). Anyone can buy the work. Every time an artist reaches £1000 of sales, they pledge to spend £200 on another artist/s work.
"Dancing the Sun into the New Day" was £250 and is now £195 including shipping within the UK*. Please email if you'd like this shipping abroad.
I get so much satisfaction from creating art this way - layers and layers of paint, inks, and texture...working with the creative flow, and choosing colours to suit mood and mindset.
Painting and dripping, pouring and scraping, until a happy balance is found.
And then come the lace like designs...plotting where to place them, the differing sizes, the space taken up, the amount of colour to show to achieve harmony between the pink and the soothing white.
Drawing. My happy place. My place of quietude. There's never a plan, I draw the concentric arcs, and then begin filling them in...moving from one to another, and back again, until they're all filled with delicate, intricate patterns and marks.
I hope you get as much joy from this piece, as I got from creating it.
