Time for another guess the creature post. This was a recent commission for a birthday gift and the recipient was stumped! So lets see if anyone can guess what these bits and pieces became? Answer on my facebook and instagrm page on Friday.
Jacqueline and Tim busy getting the Hybrid gallery stand ready for tonight's Affordable Art Fair in Bristol.
I normally post photos of the larger more complicated work.....so for a change I thought I'd share a few of the smaller pieces that will be at the Bristol Affordable Art Fair this weekend 😉
I'm busy finishing off pieces for this autumns Affordable Art fair's in Bristol and Battersea. This insect is a first for me - Not everyone's cup of tea....but I really like the humor of a 1ft long Mosquito on the wall! 😀
I've been working on some (true) bugs for next months Affordable Art Fair in Bristol. This cicada is thankfully a lot quieter than the real thing!....although I always like their noisy hiss when i'm away 🙂
Had a bit of a gap since my last post! thought i'd share one of the finished pieces I've been working on... a spoonbill 🙂
Thought I'd share a photo of this happy little chap! A recent commission for a canary enthusiast!
Saw lots of damsel flies on my morning walk with the dog...this little chap didn't seem to mind me hang over a wall and sticking a phone in his face at all! 😊
Finally found the bits I needed to finish a commission request from the end of last year! I'm rather pleased with how this fellow has turned out!
Here he is all finished and ready to go to the Hybrid gallery, Devon for a show opening next weekend. In Quiet Reverie 3 June - 8 July.
The Rose Chafer beetles are back! Watching these beautiful beetles fly around the garden really makes you smile... they're quite something to watch in the sunshine. Every year I get reminded that I really need to make one.
Those of you that have followed my work over the years will know that Lobsters have been a favored subject matter of mine since I started. This fella is however the first one I've made in a long while!
The Hybrid gallery stand at The Affordable Art Fair, UK is looking good. Some beautiful paintings by Serena Curmi, Rob Mason, Lee Madgwick and some amazingly intricate assemblage art by new gallery artist Catriona Faulkner.
The Affordable Art Fair, Hampstead opens tonight and runs until Sunday.
I thought I would continue my posts on the run up to next weeks Affordable art fair in Hampstead with this cheeky little parakeet.
Its been a while since my last post!.....I've been shut up in my workshop beavering away. I'll be posting images of the fruits of my labor over the next few weeks.....but thought I'd start with the finished Secretary Bird.
This month I'm working on new pieces for the Hampstead Affordable Art Fair in a few weeks.
This week I'm back to working on the insects! But something a little easier on the eye for most people... I've been wanting to make a furry moth for a while now and I'm pleased with how this piece has turned out. Its hard to tell from the photo but he has 69cm wingspan...so you wouldn't want this guy round your light bulbs!
