Finally Finished Faking Funny Face

21 Nov

Final

Because Husb and I went away last weekend I fell behind with my faking painting. So today I caught up and finished this copy of Henri Rousseau’s funny-faced painting “The Mandrill” that I started over a week ago. I’m joining in with painter Ed Sumner’s Friday Facebook painting class, The Cheese And Wine Painting Club, and I’m learning loads. It’s good fun too which I wasn’t expecting because painting has always stresseed me out in the past.

A Chance To Own One Of My Artworks

I have some small screenprints for sale, inspired by my drawings of the taxidermy collection at Swansea Museum. I have given these antique artifacts a modern twist by combining them with images of rubbish – old fruit nets, bubble wrap and plastic – highlighting the problem of human pollution and how it affects wildlife.

To buy my work on the Swansea Print Workshop site please click the image to the left and to see the complete image.

20 percent of the cost of each screenprint sold goes to support Swansea Print Workshop, which receives no public funding.

        Oh I love it and it makes me want to draw or paint ( neither of which I’m any good at!) I think it was you that posted on Facebook that Sky Arts was now on Freeview. Or have I got that wrong?
