    … I’m actually not too sure how my adventures in impasto started.  A friend of mine (Lynda!) bought me some nice new paint and it was calling out to be layered up and these are the results!

Thanks to one of my Facebook chums – Joyce – who suggested perhaps trying a flower painting!  I love my summer basket and have tried to capture the vibrant colours, textures and shapes in this canvas.  It’s still drying but I’ve put it up on the wall anyway ! 🙂  This may be a little series of summery type art … I’m excited :)!

Spring into Art!!

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?
