Original Contemporary Paintings
Welcome to my blog
I am an artist, who enjoys trying many crafts from painting, ceramics, glass, photography and textiles.
I love to paint in all mediums.
I enjoy trying new methods of painting and all being well, will add new work to my blog.
I have never been very good at writing letters so hello world lets see how I get on.

Collage of all the paintings I have posted for the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge organised by Leslie Saeta.
Well done to all the other 1232 artists that took part and thank you to Leslie for organising it.
It did make me venture out into the cold outdoors to my lovely warm studio and get the paint brushes moving. I tried some interesting things some more successful than others.

Day 6 of the 30 paintings in 30 days challenge organised by Leslie Saeta.
Today I have been in the studio making monoprints on my very bumpy gell plate.
I quite like the texture that is added from the actual plate.
I used acrylic and also added the petals. The outcome - Red sky at Night.
