Catch up

Time to catch up a bit, I think, and bring my poor, neglected, blog up to date. I won’t attempt to do this all in one go as there’s too much water under the bridge.

Here’s a piece I finished the other day. If you have been a regular reader of this blog, you’ll see that it’s in a familiar idiom:

Latest piece

A family member asked me , quite some time ago, to make her a piece in this style. We spent some time selecting colours; she’s pretty keen on the turquoise/teal range, so this was a must. It’s a colour range I’ve not used much so it was interesting to me to see how it was going to work out. I used the sandy/yellow ochre range with a splash of a dark reddish brown for contrast. People seem to like the pieces in this style – when I put this on Instagram it got my best response yet. But I don’t want to get stuck in one style and it’s probably time to broaden my horizons. So, I’ve decided to get busy with sampling again, just doodling around to see what I can come up with. More on this another time when I will provide a further catch up.
