An interesting start to this year….The Covid 19 pandemic!

“Stay at Home” government advice, this kick started a new sketchbook for me. Wonderful inspiration from the country lane nearby where each day I walk our Puppy Jupiter, our cheeky Cockerpoo! A sketchbook with a difference painted sketches and a space to express my anxieties at this worrying time. Very cathartic!

You can’t help but be anxious, countries across the world are Just about coping with the virus, Italy has the most deaths. Sixty six doctors have died.
The Uk was on a similar trajectory until the Lockdown. The Uk government are hoping they have acted promptly to flatten the curve.

My Painting Challenge

I am taking part in a thirty day challenge called 30/03 by a group called Thirty.works each day you post a new piece of work and they exhibit it. It’s very motivating and quite a challenge.

I am working in a very emotional way, digging deep into my psyche, exploring painting of my first memories and any of my defining moments good or bad. Very abstract, surprisingly different.
Not my norm and my Facebook and Instagram followers are a little surprised and the new work, and a bit quiet. If I mange to create 30 pieces it will be a fabulous body of work to exhibit, I’m enjoying it very much.
