Starting to get a little ‘quirky’ into my still-life paintings, yay happy.

I am a little known for the quirky collage and wall art that I make.

Usually a little surreal, some juxtaposing of scale or something unexpected (that kind of thing).

So I found it really hard to just present bottles, jugs, fruit in still-life paintings and that’s when I questioned whether it was boring or not.  I layered the backgrounds, scratched into surfaces, knocked back colours to bring the image back to a more neutral tone plus a few other techniques.  I have been encouraged by people on my blog, on instagram and in person so many thanks.  This is the most recent one I have done and I feel really good about it because it is not the usual kind of set up.  Yay a bit silly…

    Anne – I’ve been posting ‘painter of the day’ posts on Facebook. It’s not a big deal – I only have ~50 friends. I just do it for fun – it’s not a marketing thing. Would you mind if I posted some pics of your work if I credit you? I’ve been posting older painters and someone asked about current painters.

        You did and thank you. I must have forgotten to respond to you. Someone asked about a painting of mine on FB, and asked what was going through my mind. I did include a link to your wordpress page in my response. I haven’t posted another painter of the day for a bit but when I do I will let you know. Thank you Anne!

    You can never have too many friends or at least I can’t. Thankyou and yes you are very welcome to repost.
