a new painting...a new series








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

patteran


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

Beautiful. Love the colours. I think it has a feeling of light and space. I get a feeling that I should follow a path around/through the picture and in doing so, think about the different objects and what they mean to me and to you. More please xxxxx

Very interesting. I like the "pattern" in your painting. The leaves, lines, and colours are wonderful. Can you tell me the dimensions?

Just been for a flight around your painting, wonderful patterns - as you would guess I love the spirals! The colours are beautiful and the cloud effects are captivating. Can't wait to see more of this series.
Love and light
