After a year I am writing again. There is so much happening, all positive.
I have now had two art exhibition this week in Swansea during 2021 and was really happy with the interest shown and the sales made. It is difficult to judge whether your art is liked or whether it is just yourself! I started painting in earnest 18 months ago and have created around 100 paintings of various sizes. With no formal art training I have been a free spirit and painted what I wanted to do. And I have been very satisfied with my work.
I have mainly painted abstract work, all highly energised and dynamic, using both brushes and palette knives.
Each painting is built up in layers of strong prime colours, often poured or applied directly to the canvas so that my work is both visual but also highly tactile and I like people to touch the surface and feel the ridges, bumps and other shapes.
At our opening of the Volcano exhibition we were pleased to have the Mayor of the City and County of Swansea to open the event. There was a very good turnout to see this show of around 80 paintings in total.
