Artiste en Residence

I turned the two paintings I started last week to the wall (I will look at them afresh later and hopefully finish them) and concentrated on the large square, which I have now finished it just needs a name

place with no name

I then started on the two small boards that I thought I would do as a diptych.

No it has to go!

From the window of the studio all I can see is trees, which is a great shame as the Vienne River is down there somewhere…

tree line

when I started the largest of the boards I had prepped, the only thing I could think to do was the horizon of trees, it seems the trees are entering my psyche…


the idea

once I had put them in I realised that the ground should have been put in first. phew lets hope I can pull it off.

WIP – still some way to go


Those darn trees!

I have prepped the ground on the diptych for ‘them there trees’ a line of them will go across the horizon

diptych – again

Fingers crossed; all goes well with them.
