Pre – Christmas was a busy time at fairs and with a few online sales. This month I’ve taken art work into the Open Exhibition at the Royal Cambrian, Conwy (an hours’ car journey one way) and the students exhibition at Staacks gallery, West Kirby. I attend classes in oils there and really enjoy working in a different medium, though it’s challenging at times. Some of my oil paintings are in a newly created gallery on this site.
An artist friend came to do one of my batik workshops and after applying wax, used acrylic paints rather than dyes. She then collaged on pieces of waxed tissutex and rewaxed over them. With a window card there were some interesting selections that could inspire new full scale work. My next workshops are in early February.
