This is the first time I shall be showing my Wall Art at the Secret Severn Art Trail and I'm really excited to be have been selected. My work will sit alongside other fabulous artists at the Footprint Gallery in Jackfield (near Ironbridge) - open every day 10am - 5pm. I shall be manning the show on Tuesday 8th 10am - 1pm so please come along and say hello.
The 10 day event combines not only the artwork showing at the gallery but also various open studios in the surrounding Severn valley so there will be lots of creative art to inspire you, all with social distancing and sanitation in mind! Don't forget your facemask.
The small seascapes are a vignette of the greater coastal landscape. I see them as a snapshot of that memorable day spent walking the coast path or sitting on the beach watching the world go by. It can be a solitary, peaceful moment or a family gathering full of chatter and laughter.. but at the moment the vignette is captured it is a very personal perspective.
This group image shows 18 small seascapes that have been heated to approximately 780c and before I 'cold-work' them... grinding and sand-blasting them individually to reveal the final image. This is the fun bit!
