New Year New Work
The above painting on canvas is ‘A Thimble Full of Red’ which was recently selected for The Midlands Open & sold at the Tarpey Gallery.
The title is taken from a quote by Henri Matisse ~
“A thimbleful of red is redder than a bucketful.”
I’ve been asked to put together some work for a gallery and I shall be working on some new pieces for this, some of which will be on canvas.
previous to 2011 I had always painted on canvas, however for the last 18 months I have only painted on paper.
Although 18 months doesn’t sound too long ago, returning to painting on canvas leaves me feeling a little apprehensive as I know there’s going to be a battle with it for a while.
