I have been busy with my camera again - we visited Masham, North Yorkshire, UK. Lots of sheep, sculptures + family pics below... + updates of my work...
A moment to treasure.... Original Acrylic Painting on Canvas
This painting is an addition to the 'Bird Series'. You can see the rest of them here.
I've also loved the spontaneity of painting and writing in my journal this week. It's wonderful to just paint what comes and not be too critical because it's just afterall my journal!
Here are a couple of examples:
Journal entry inspired from Sunday... Book I am currently re-reading - The Artists Way... (fab)!
We walked the Masham Leaves trail on Sunday. Even though it poured it down, hailed at times and we were soaking, we still managed to laugh and appreciate the beauty all around us.
Apparently, in the early 1990's sculptor Alain Ayers was commissioned to design this project and it became known as the Masham Leaves. Paving slabs were reclaimed from the former railway station platform. The walk takes a good two hours and the boys loved it because there were so many different styles of stiles!
(sorry image blurred - I think rain on lens!)
Apparently, with reference to the above, there's a 'story that says if you were to see the ghosts of Romans here they would only be visible from the knees up as the road was at a much lower level than today'. (Text part-taken from Masham Leaves leaflet).
I love this one! It is all about the sheep farming tradition in Masham. As you look at it from differing angles, you see different views of oak leaves. In the distance, you can also see Swinton Castle (Swinton Park Hotel) which has been so pivotal to the development of the landscape and economy of the local area. (Robert + I stayed here on our 5th wedding anniversary - beautiful place!).
So, lots of work at the moment. Concentrating on trying to list my work at the moment. Wanting to offer cards and more prints and some giclee prints too! Look out for this in the future!
Have a wonderful week to you all and Happy Creating!
