current obsessions....





I continue to be obsessed with the work of several contemporary British artists and they all happen to be women.
um! so why is that?

I am particularly in raptures over Elaine Pamphilon's work..... have a look at her website! I'm just crazy about everything that she produces.....
a lot of the imagery she uses is based on St.Ives... and then much of her visual language echoes back to the work of Alfred Wallis, Ben Nicholson and Bryan Pearce.

a bit of old wall....




the patina...
the layers of colour and worn paint here are just 'yummy'!

this building was being restored, re-painted and the surface was being completely rubbed down, the painted layers that it exposed are delicious, I'd like to have a go at recreating this effect using paint and a couple of Brillo Pads....

are you sitting comfortably?


How unlike Barnaby to find the warmest spot in the garden at any given time!!!!!
