Preferring to celebrate Yule and the December Solstice with it’s lean towards nature, I have been painting small pieces with a message of peace. They look contemporary in these deep white, specially made box frames and are available as seasonal gifts. Please message me if you are interested – they are £90. Support artists and keep the economy local!
Another local artist over in Shropshire, Anne Marie Lagram has produced an Advent Calendar for counting down to the Solstice. In the doors are seasonal pictures and some information about traditions around Yule time. She also has a beautiful Country Wisdom and Folklore Diary available for 2018, full of traditional tales and lore. I am lucky enough to be featured on the April page by way of a painting – “Song Bird”. Here is the link to the website: https://www.talkingtreesbooks.co.uk/product-page/country-wisdom-folklore-diary-2018
I am thoroughly into the British wildlife genre at the moment – such a rich array to work with and all leading up to a solo exhibition I have next Spring at the Museum of Cannock Chase Gallery
At the moment I am enjoying working on some oil paintings which I find very absorbing. Hopefully the movement and energy of the hare shines through.
So whatever you are doing and celebrating this coming month, keep warm and make the most of spending some quality time with friends and family to restore you in preparation for the oncoming New Year.
Don’t forget that workshops in my studio in Central Wolverhampton can be found here – book some in advance and treat yourself to a creative break!
