Mugshots ….

20 Feb

Husb and I participated in a self-portrait painting workshop today, led by the fabulous Welsh artist Tomos Sparnon and hosted by the most excellent GS Artists in Swansea. Of course, it was on Zoom as we’re still in lockdown but I’m enjoying online learning, both delivering and receiving. Today we worked in acrylics on canvas, pretty quickly. These are a long way from being finished – quite a bit of work left to do. Lots of people think that artists just go Bish Bash Bosh and a work of art appears, but that’s not so. It’s hours and hours and layers and layers and loads of mistakes, corrections and frustration that goes into making an artwork. I’m not sure self-portrait is the right description for these two at the moment – mugshots more like. Never mind, I’m sure they’ll improve 😀

 

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.

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