Latest Event Updates
I didn’t really want to get all my art stuff out this evening …so came up with a landscape and used the sewing machine instead of a brush .. !! First time for everything and no brushes to wash!!
….sit back …put on Classic FM and let this little slideshow of artworks ease you into a relaxing Sunday … ahhhhhhhhh!!
…so I decided to paint a nice Spring-like painting this evening!! It’s on the wall …drying!! :)
Have a lovely creative May-day weekend… I will. Mo
I’m going to try out some new colour combinations in my paintings this season. I always play it safe using earth colours but I kind of like this lemon tinted sky in this new canvas of Rathlin Island (still drying!) … what do you think?
Although i enjoy watching the BBC’s Big Painting Challenge and I know it’s a competition … but it can be soul destroying when these good amateur artists are torn down every week by the judges (I know they have to have an opinion). Someone on their facebook page commenting… ‘Such a promising idea….just so exasperated by the judges comments. Are they teachers? Their negativity is astounding! Criticism can and should be given in a positive, encouraging manner…not fault finding and crushing. This programme does not sit well and one can only feel pity for the way the contestants have been treated and let down.’ What do you think?
