Do Not Disturb

3 Feb

you could move and lose a few pints of blood and your dignity, or we could stay here copy

So here’s another one of Husb’s captions on one of my cat drawings. Sparta Puss was sleeping on my lap of an evening, like she often does. She doesn’t like to be disturbed!

 

 

Fun With The Family

2 Feb

glyn viv 2019

Husb and I took two young relatives to the Glynn Vivian art gallery in Swansea today. Every Saturday there’s a free, family-friendly art session with a resident artist who encourages people to draw and paint, inspired by artists in the gallery collection. This week focused on the artist Ceri Richards and the poet Vernon Watkins.

It was lovely doing art for fun. It rarely happens for me because it’s my profession and it’s usually a very serious thing but today it was great to chill out and have a play. Husb’s interpretation of the poetry managed to include the USS Starship Enterprise. Sometimes I wonder about him.

 

 

 

Lazy Bones

seen the light

Husb is putting captions to my cat drawings, for a laugh. They’re so accurate too. This is Sparta Puss chilling out, drawn with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen into a very nice sketchbook made with banana leaf paper.

 

 

Blame!

Sparta Puss always blames me.

 

Husb is putting captions to my cat drawings. It’s fun 😀

 

 

There’s Millions Of Them!

30 Jan

to be honest, this obsession is starting to feel a bit creepy copy

Another bit of fun from Husb and me. Sometimes you just gotta loosen up and have a laugh, art can get very serious. Husb has been adding captions to my drawings of our cats, done over many years, we’ve been cat people for decades. This is Sparta Puss pointing out the obvious. She doesn’t have a high opinion of her trained monkeys.

Mission To Kill

29 Jan

talked about this before

Husb and I have been having fun, he’s been taking some of my drawings of our cats and adding his own text to them. This is the late, great Little Ming, a tiny fluffball and so very sweet, except with vets. It was her mission in life to kill vets. She had a red dot on her notes at the vets because she was so dangerous. Aaaawww.

 

 

Hairy Haiku

Hairy Haiku. It’s my cat again. She’s very clever.

 

 

Having A Laugh ….

27 Jan

wanted

Husb and I have been playing around with some of my drawings of Sparta Puss. There are loads of them hanging around because she really likes posing for me. So Husb has been adding little captions. She is not amused 😀

 

 

A Happy Accident

26 Jan

Exhibition: “Female Expressions”, Saturday 2nd – Saturday 23rd February. Queen Street Gallery, Neath.

This is an etching of mine called “Ripples” made from an original life drawing, working with a professional model. It’s part of a series of etchings of the nude which I called “Rinascere” which relates to the word Renaissance because I based the etchings on Renaissance drawing techniques. I call it Ripples because of the ripples moving over her body which were an accidental effect of the process. I used a photosensitive etching plate from a drawing on tracing paper. It looked all right but after it had been exposed in the UV light box, I noticed ripples on the plate from the slight undulations on the tracing paper. They were there because I used wet media for the drawing. But I like it, a happy accident. It’s going to be in the “Female Expressions” exhibition.

Coming To Neath!

25 Jan

cushion crop

Saturday 2nd – Saturday 23rd February. This is a detail of “The Cushion”, one of my etchings that will shortly be in an exhibition called “Female Expression” in the lovely Queen Street Gallery in Neath.

It’s part of a series of etchings of the nude which I called “Rinascere” which relates to the word Renaissance because I based the etchings on Renaissance drawing techniques.

According to the exhibition’s curator, Jocelyn Prosser, this is…
An exhibition celebrating the female form. Each artist will give a unique and deeply personal expression of the female condition. Although diverse there is a bond in this exhibition that connects. It reveals the strength and fragility within the female psyche.”
