Black Magic - A4 size acrylic on card - freehand lettering with brush and paint With the current interest and revival of all things hand done, including lettering, I am inspired to create some one off pieces.
Let's Face It - Acrylics on card with envelope - 12x12 cms. approx. With the current hype about the Archibald Prize, and the winner to be announced shortly, I thought I'd paint this small art piece to feel part of it all. LOL
Tree Freeze10 x 20 cms. Acrylics on canvas boards My small art phase is still in play, and with these little paintings my inspiration was to capture their distinctive and characteristic beauty. Two more to come For sale
Wild - 20 x 25 cms. Inks on canvas $ 220. Regularly seen being maintained at our local dry dock at Woolwich, the yacht "Wild Oats" inspired this little painting completed using a variety of inks. What fun it was seeing the inks working to achieve a wild result.
Harry and Jenna - Chalk on paper 30x75cm Inspired by our two best friends, these two spontaneously produced chalk sketches from Friday art could end up anywhere and or everywhere !!! ( Thinking printing )
Dance Your Heart Out - Acrylics on canvas 40 x 40 cms. Inspired by the Dirty Dancing Musical recently showing in Sydney, and, by my current tutoring in brush lettering experiences, I have combined the two in this lively image.
