Here are two of my most recent pieces, the working titles so far are Steamy Windows I & II. Not sure yet whether they will remain so entitled, but I’ll live with it for a while. They are just finished, on paper and unframed. I wanted to work with a limited palette of Indigo, Paynes Grey, Chrome Yellow and white. They look purpleish on the photos, but are a little more blue in reality. I’m still working with oils and cold wax and loving the textures that can be made with the medium.
Isn’t it strange that the colours change with the seasons, or perhaps not. In looking back this year, I can see from my works when the sun shone and when it didn’t. We haven’t had too much sun this month so far, and it certainly is cold outside at the moment. I hate the dark nights and the short days.
We have decided to revamp the front garden and remove all the bushes that have overgrown and invaded the neighbours garden. It seemed like a good idea, but the amount of ivy and weeds that have had to be removed has meant many trips to the recycling centre. We are nearly there, just the gravel to go down and the christmas lights to go up, hopefully before the 25th!
Have a great christmas all of you and a happy and healthy 2021.
