Open Studios

Due to various reasons, I seem to have had even less time than usual this year to make new work. As a result the thought of Open Studios looming has seemed a daunting prospect. Last week I really knuckled down and cleared out my studio and display areas and sorted out the work I've got available to show. This week I thought I'd see if I could add a few new pieces of work and I've come up with this trio of small appliqued and free machined canvases.
 
 
They might not be high art or be steeped with concept and meaning but they are quite pretty and I think they might have "mass appeal". And if not I don't really mind because I like them.

"Spotty Teapot"

"Spotty Jug"

"Spotty Bowl"

 
In fact I liked them enough to make two larger canvases in the same style.

 
Open Studio
20th & 21st July and 27th & 28th July.
Full details of mine and other studios open in Cambridgeshire can be found here.
Would love to see you!
