Weybourne Mill 2
Weybourne Mill is close to the village where I live, and is now residential accommodation. The Mill sits close to the seas' edge and cliff tops and is surrounded by golden fields, edged with deep green hedgerows.Some old Norfolk barns can just be seen beyond the hedge. Fluffy white clouds scud across the sky giving the appearance that, as in days gone by, the sails may turn at any moment.
A soft pastel on sandpaper study from life of the creek at Morston, North Norfolk. In the distance can be seen the towers of Blakeney Church and the tiny cluster of buildings that line the quay, while to the foreground can be seen a couple of boats lying against the muddy edges of the creek. A man is bending down to the creek, looking for something in the eddying flow of water. Mounted and framed under glass- ready to hang.
A Native Indian and his pony stand at the edge of a gentle stream that eddies through the mountains. They are contemplating the perfection and cycle of nature. The sky is soft cerulean blue and the mountains are in varying blues and snow topped, the landscape then descends through a green plain to the stream in the foreground. The text at the top reads "Great Spirit give us hearts to understand; never to take from Creations beauty more that we give" it is taken from a Native Indian saying and these are words we could all look to take note of. Now sold but similar work may be commissioned. Its framed in a simple silver frame.
My Icelandic horse, charging down the garden, mane and forelock flying. She comes in response to my husband whistling the theme tune from the film, The Vikings.....of course i can't whistle, so have to resort to her name. She's a dark chocolate brown, her name Muska means mouse-coloured. I've tried to pick out the myriad shades of brown in her coat, and the copper coloured highlights. In the background are some of the lush green Laurels that dominate our garden.
the lady of the lake
A lovely grey horse canters briskly along the shallows of the lake, nostrils snorting and mane and tail streaming in the breeze. droplets of water spray up her legs as she moves through the lake. The lake is a myriad of blues and greens and white droplets of waterspray, and the evening sun has turned the sky a medley of sienna shades, which contrast well with the grey body of the horse. My son always says this work reminds him of an Athena poster...
Whats your name
Down in a flowery meadow full of daisies and poppies a chesnut horse leans down to a blue roan cocker spaniel, noses almost touching. This work is framed in a cream mount and thin silver wood and glass frame. it was part of a project I did in preparation for a demonstration at Aylmerton Festival. I did this scene in all the different media I use, so in addition to this one in soft pastel there are watercolours, acrylic, oils, oil pastel ( which I completed at the demo) and one in encaustic wax.
Whats your name 2
Down in a flowery meadow full of daisies and poppies a chestnut horse leans down to a blue roan cocker spaniel, noses almost touching. This work is encaustic beeswax on canvas and ready to hang.it's part of a project I did for a demonstration at Aylmerton Festival on June 23rd 2007. I did this scene in all the different media I use, so in addition to this one in encaustic wax there will be watercolours, acrylic, oils, oil pastel ( which I completed at the demo) and one in soft pastel. This work simply needs a rub with a soft cloth occasionally to bring back the lustre of the pure beeswax, and gradually the wax will harden and cure til this needs doing perhaps once per year. Encaustic paintings, like all fine artwork should never be hung in direct sunlight. For those people worried about melting, wax melts at 130. in the words of a famous American encaustic artist.. If my art is melting in your home you have a bigger problem, your house is on fire...
