a new painting...a new series

new paintings are emerging
they are forming a series...i have a name for the series


patteran....coded marks left by gypsies

in this one some of the marks and certainly the mood are inspired by the things in my studio window

things from bali, from the garden
and from portugal...those wooden objects are pushed through loops to form fastenings for leather straps

above is a detail and below is the painting
(click on it to enlarge)

Patteran, mixed media on canvas 100x100 cms

i am loving painting these...but what do you think?
any feedback most welcome x
