60cm a 60cm
Mixed Media

My paper works finally led to a work on canvas which took me almost 4 weeks to complete. It was subject to many changes but looking at it now I can't understand why I spent so long on it. It is a combination of high art and low art and colours I feel that represent Alicante in the summer fiesta season. To me this is 'Alicante'.

A small collection of my recent paper works. I am more excited about doing this kind of thing than I have been for a long time. It's a new voice for me!

This was the first of my small 'autobiographical' paper works which began as doodle. I now have it framed and hanging on our second lounge wall alongside several others. It was this that inspired me to do the picture below and several other similar works. For the past 4 weeks I have been totally immersed in transfering ideas from this to canvas which seems to have taken an age to complete. For some reason I find it hard to be this free on canvas.

This however explains my relative absence from blogging! I haven't enjoyed working this much for awhile and have been on a roll. Lots of things seem to have suddenly come together!
