Sunflower Sketches....

It seems a while since I posted anything here on my blog, so I thought that I would share some work that I started last week. A friend wanted me to paint a small picture for his Mother who loves Sunflowers.  Many years ago I  created a whole Sunflower collection for textiles but I have not painted this flower for ages even though I have a great collection of photographs that I have taken from my garden last year. I decided on a couple of interpretations.... although if I have time I would also like to do another style..... more painterly perhaps?  I wasnt sure which would be the most suitable.....what would your choice be?

Calling All Surface Pattern Designers!

Designs intended for Rotary printing

Designers out there! .... I need some feedback.
For quite some time I have been thinking about offering some private tutorials/demonstrations of traditional hand painting techniques for surface pattern designs, specifically intended for screen printing (flat bed or rotary) I would also concentrate on repeating patterns and working to technical restrictions............ I would only be interested in instructing qualified designers who may have not experienced more traditional methods of design disciplines. What do you think and would there be any interest?

Sam and Feline Peacock..nature and bling!

New framed prints of my originals "Sam" and "Feline Peacock"
Managed to sneak in these two little lovelies for the show tomorrow....Brads framing is fabulous... love all the gold..... I know its the bling in me!........ They are two prints from my original artwork. "Sam" is of course a red squirrel which I am lucky to see here in Northumberland as they are rare in the UK now. The "Feline Peacock is a quirky interpretation of my friends cat Poppy in the centre of the Peacock butterfly which during the summer last year I managed to get quite a few photos of.

New Prints of my originals ... just framed


Brad has done a wonderful job this weekend framing my prints for the fair next week. I love the black frames and think these pics would look great on a grey or black wall... and the honesty pics would sit  in a more rustic environment...love them!
