The Drawing Room

I have been revamping listings on Etsy to show how my paintings and note cards could look when displayed in rooms (or, as I like to call them, drawing rooms). The process of ‘framing’ them was fascinating, to see what worked and what didn’t. These are a few favourites.

A Little Serenity

A Little Serenity — acrylic on canvas, 100 x 100 mm, 2018. Available.

Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.

“…it is part of the artist’s function to pay sudden attention to… the details the world is constantly offering us, and then, if adequately arrested by them, to give them a singular existence, transforming them without falsifying them to reveal the capacity that all ordinary things have to become suddenly remarkable when picked out by human vision.” Margaret Mahy

Positive Interference

Positive Interference — acrylic on canvas, 100 x 100 mm, 2018. Available.

My latest mini painting was made with ‘leftover’ paint, hence the unusual colour combination (which I really like).

Bilocation

Bilocation — acrylic on canvas, 150 x 150 mm, 2018. Available.

Have you ever wished you could be in two places at the same time? This quirky little abstract was inspired by one of my six-word stories: “Bilocation would be a useful skill.” Click on the image to see more photos on Etsy.
