Blue Glass Jug
I saw this little blue glass jug in a charity shop. I thought it was cute and would look great with the last pink rose from my garden. It did, but it was quite tricky to paint! It's oil on a box canvas so doesn't need framing. On display at The Art CafÃ©, Charles Roe House, Macclesfield.
Green Mix recycled paint Brooch
I have recycled some of my paint that dripped off some paintings as I paint them.. I encased it behind a glass dome in a antique style metal base. Each piece is completely unique and nobody else will have one like it! It comes complete with a black presentation box. I have found it very difficult to photograph my jewellery because of the reflections on the glass and can only say that the colours are much more vibrant in real life with lots going on in them. As with all costume jewellery please keep perfumes and hairsprays etc away from them. Free postage. I also make cuff links,brooches,earrings and pendants
Thoughts of the Past
Part of my ongoing landscape of the mind series of paintings. This mindscape painting attempts to conjure memories of the dying milltown from my childhood memories. Acrylic on stretched canvas. This painting is strung on the back and ready to hang. The edges are painted white for a clean contemporary look.
A Place in the Sun
This is an evocative piece showing two young ladies on tour in their iconic Citroen 2CV with the even more iconic Mont St Michel as a backdrop. They have broken their journey while one of the friends enjoys the sunshine while the other contemplates who knows what? This piece is set in a contemporary tray frame, either white or brushed cream - the choice is yours - which measures 68cm x 48cm overall x 35mm deep.
