Drum Roll

Yay I'm officially back at the easel!!! I am now working towards an art market that will be held on the 5th and 6th of December. Not realising that Greenhill Gallery were going to keep all my work for future sales, I am very low on stock. I only have old stuff that I have outgrown. My skills are more developed now so I don't feel I want to do an art market with only old stuff. Anyway below are two new works. One that has been sitting on my easel partly done for months and the other which I only started last Thursday. Oh its good to be back.

Oh the handles of the shovel, well any part of shovel is special to me. the handles though are the closed to the human side of us. I'm fond of this one like i"m fond of the boots my dear... loving them all but feel friendlier to these.

I'm loving the newest pieces! Love wooden spoons although they always get chewed up at my house!

What a great composition of the handles, Uta! As always, you bring the often fast overlooked details and make a masterpiece out of it. It just wonderful and very nurturing to go ever so deeper in finding more and more in each of your pieces....

Laura,
Yes I'm connected to those handles too. They came together very easily where as the wooden spoons sat around for months. The boots sold at my last exhibition and I was quite sad about that hehehe.

Suz,
I wonder what's in this Thursday thing. Maybe its because its not the beginning of the week when things are busier and not the end of the week when we take things more gently. Who knows. I think I was born on a Thursday.

Doris,
I'm lucky Jack is not a chewer. I wouldn't have anything to paint if he chewed up everything hehehe.

Hi Tatiana,
We haven't spoken in ages. I love the ordinary little details of life. I suppose that's how I view the world and it just comes out in my art.

Thanks everyone for your on going support through my ups and downs :)

Yeah! You're back! I love the shovel handles, they remind me of my dad. And you have made them look so real and used, worn out like shovels ought to be. Can't wait to see more.

Yes, they come right off the page. Beautiful paintings. Beautiful shadows!

Uta! You're back! There was no doubt-you were just recharging. Love the handles and can't wait to see the unveiling of the one that kept you from dinner.
