I’ve been a busy bee this week. I’ve done these two new abstracts, I am trying to develop 6 square artworks for a card range, to be published by The Art Group, that work together but have different enough compositions. My favourite way to work is with the portrait orientation so I’ve enjoyed the challenge:

I’ve been experimenting with some Xmas imagery for potential cards. This is what I’ve done so far but I’m  not sure if its ‘Christmassy’ enough, it’s been suggested I should change the background colour which I think will really help. I love the colours against the blue but it isn’t the most obvious colour for Xmas, I think I was aiming for it look like snowflakes falling from the sky. I think with a different background colour and some of the blue used as accents within the snowflakes it could be more successful. Watch this space…

At last! I have finally joined the wonderful world of Etsy. Having been saying to myself I will do it for longer than I care to remember I now have my own shop. I am still yet to sell anything but it’s not dampening my enthusiasm! Check out the items in my store below:

I have got a couple of prints of of my paintings in there, I hope to add some more soon:

I’ve also done a few original paper cut outs, a couple on the similar pattern theme but also one that features something I overheard somebody say on a train years ago. They were taken aback when they bumped into somebody they knew. The person asked if they had seen them out the other day and he stuttered ‘Maybe…it could have been me. I am one of many few’. It  has stuck with me ever since!

As promised here is my final piece for the upcoming ‘Hidden Gems’ show, the latest by the East End Arts Club:

The exhibition is in conjunction with London Jewellery week so expect lots of sparkle! The original and an edition run of 10 will be available at the show and online. The show will then move to the Swanfield Yard gallery until the beginning of July.

I’ve been a bit quiet recently because I’ve been trying to finish my alphabet piece for the next East End Arts Club exhibition ‘Said why eggs?!‘. I’ve also become a bit obsessed with paper cut outs, a technique I already use to varying degrees, usually using the ‘cut out’ elements in my abstract paintings. This time I thought it would be nice to look at what was left and try and make a whole piece in the traditional way. Most of the paper cut out art I have seen features whimsical, folk style imagery so I think it might be nice to do a few pieces using the retro patterns I normally use:

This is my latest abstract:

I wanted to do a pair for a previous image and I think they work well together:

I’ve been saying this for ages but I am intending to set up an Etsy shop selling my prints. I’m also thinking of having the following design printed on some cotton shoppers. What do you think?
