‘Art on the Railings’ – Centenary Square, Broad Street

With co artists Karen Arnold and Rebecca Jayne Dolby I took part in this years Arts Fest in Birmingham under the collective name ‘Cocoa Art’ What a great weekend! There was so much going on – and free! Our pitch was near the big stage in Centenary square where all sorts of music and bands were playing – and for an hour on Sunday morning we learnt to salsa dance! Brilliant weekend and very enjoyable.

Karen and I manned the stand and had lots of welcome comments, sales and a few commisions. Here’s to 2012 Art Fest!

Part of a series of work based on a photograph I took last summer in Cornwall which I cropped and produced the first drawing in graphite of a rockpool and shells. From this I continued the series and

each piece is based on the last work in each work, hopefully each piece will gradually change – as ‘Chinese whispers’ in art!

More to follow!

FOR SALE

Acrylic & Gold Leaf on paper 36 x 30cm

This is done in several layers, adding paint, scraping it off until the desired effect was achieved. The copy doesn’t really do it justice as it has dark depths and glittering surfaces.

Inspired by the photo below taken late at night overlooking the harbour in Looe, Cornwall which I think is the best time to vist Looe when a variety of little shops are open in the cobbled streets and wonderful smells emerge from local fish restaurants.
