Really excited to have 2 paintings shortlisted for the National Open Art Competition. There is a public vote throughout August where you can vote for your favourite shortlisted pieces. Please click on the links / titles below to view, and if you'd like to vote for either / both of mine I'd love that. Also please share if you have friends who might be interested. Big thanks.
Wayside IV (Churchyard Wall) acrylic on canvas, 33 x 33 x 5 cm : Two flowers growing on the churchyard wall, together but apart. When I went back, they had gone. I’ve painted them as a memory of something that was perfect, then past.
Wayside I (Queen Anne's Lace) oil and acrylic on canvas, 44 x 44 x 5 cm : Cow parsley growing in the local churchyard- I traced the shadows of the intricate forms, almost like stitching, and the painting evolved, telling a detailed story of absence and recollection.
