The Prayer Tree
My latest painting from this week.  20 x 16 inches, acrylic on canvas board.  I imagined a tree full of prayer requests, like post-it note prayers stuck to a tree, but they are gold, silver, yellow and orange.  Some of the prayers have falllen to the ground and seem to have failed, but after a long time, something beautiful grows in their place.
Yellow Irises
Yellow irises from UEA park in Norfolk. Watercolour (Neoart pastels) on 200gsm Not watercolour paper. 7x5in.
Bluebells in my Garden
Finished a new painting yesterday - Bluebells in acrylic.  Liquitex acrylics on canvas board, 12x10 inches.  Painted entirely with painting knives.

I have been painting since March 2009, but have done photography seriously for 20 years before that. I am currently focusing on painting in acrylics and oil pastels and am trying to develop a bold expressive/impressionist painting style.

:iconfaveplz: And thanks for all the :+fav:s! I won't attempt to thank you all individually, but hope to dedicate more time to creating new art.
