I came across some paintings while organising my studio recently. These were done while I was completing an art degree at NJCU. I've saved them now for over 6 years, mostly for sentimental reasons, they were never really resolved and I thought I would finish them at one point but I never did- so now I think its time to let them go.
I decided that I would put the canvases to better use by painting over them. Something which I've never done before. So its a bit scary. I don't know what I will do with them yet. Here are the before photos-
Here I have painted just one layer of gesso over the paintings. I will need to add more layers before I can start to work on it.
Here is a look at the second Swindon Open Studios art exhibiton in the Window Gallery-opposite Post Modern Gallery in Swindon. The theme for this exhibition is mermaids. Here are some photos of the window.
Sunday was my artist reception at the Beehive Pub where I have an exhibit of mostly new mixed media artwork. It was a a nice turn out considering it was a Bank Holiday weekend-which meant lots of people would be away. The artwork will be up till the end of May so if you can, come and take a look. Here are just a few photos of the event.
