Happy New Year!
I had fun before Christmas keeping things simple and created a few small framed collages, that have been called ‘cute’ by many of my friends!
Its been quite refreshing to quickly collage the background, then add a touch of pencil and paint and not overwork the design. The first ‘Home’ design was an imaginative piece, whereas for my ‘Light’ design I dug out some old photos taken of Plymouth’s famous lighthouse that sits on the Hoe, that I had taken back when Alex was a baby….so nearly ten years ago! Finally the third ‘Home’ piece was based on my childhood home in Suffolk and was a surprise Christmas present for my folks.
I have created a few artworks of peoples homes or of buildings that hold special memories and really enjoy making a keepsake of these special places. I am now going to use this quicker technique and return to my favourite beach hut theme and hopefully create a few more memories. I also have a couple of beach themed canvases I still need to finish. So lots to fit in around the kids and the day job!
