I was going for a loose feel with this one, the underpainting seems to set it all off sparkling.
These are the first in a series of flower studies.
All on A3 double gesso-ed acrylic paper.

I had a very pleased customer yesterday, who received her Zip top Art Bag that she’d ordered through my online store. I am adding a few more products during the course of this week, so keep a look out!
Painting efforts came to a halt this past week and a half due to interruptions in our weather – we had SNOW on the first day of spring! Real snow, not just a dusting. It was quite chaotic over here. Roads closed, people not able to get to work, schools closed … I suppose people in North America and other Northern European countries would think it was silly … but you know the Brits, they panic at the slightest sign of a disaster looming on the horizon.
I’ve got a lot of art works to complete this month, so hopefully will be able to post some photos and info soon.
I’ve titled this one, ‘On her way’ – it is inspired by the devastating mental health struggles my youngest daughter is currently experiencing after the birth of her baby almost three months ago. These last few months have been extremely traumatic for all of us but last night, when I went to visit her with her older sister, it was like she was back to her old self again. There is still a lot more work needs to be done but it was the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel I saw last night, as she walked away from us down the corridor to her room. She seemed to be surrounded by a golden glow and that’s what I wanted to get across in this painting.
