Week 14: 29 June 2020
Duffy - Ha Ho Art, Underpainting - Work In Progress (Acrylic on canvas),
I decided that the time was right to start this painting as a celebration of the easing of lockdown on Sunday & a return to some kind of normal, only to watch our Premiere Dan Andrews ban 'kissing & cuddling...' for at least another three weeks!
Oh well, it was a nice dream & I am still loving the idea... Also, loving the Sound Of Music/Wuthering Heights/Mills & Boon... vibe of this particular painting!
But, it will change that's for sure.

Angela Morrissey, Bathsheba Bathing, 25 June 2020
I created a linocut print of Bathsheba bathing inspired by an image I saw on the Internet. The Old Testament's, Second Book of Samuel, tells of how King David saw this beautiful woman bathing. This scene also inspired Leonard Cohen in his song Halleluhah: 'You saw her bathing on the roof/Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya.'
Pamela Vine, Meeting of the dragons, 1 April 2020
Julie Kala, Kerry's mum, 26 June 2020
A work colleague wanted a painting of her mum on her honeymoon from 1952 coloured and enlarged. I had incorporated the black and white photo into another art piece so she was keen to have another bigger version to keep.
Jane Ineson, Life Drawing, detail (graphite), 28 June 2020
Today I met with artists for our first life drawing session in months, such a relief to once again engage in this noble and rewarding activity! On arriving home, I usually have at least 10 drawings to review, this time 16, and it always feels like unpacking treasure!

Andre Sardone, Structure, 24 June 2020
Made from redundant steel balls from a rock mill and recycled steel rod. I went into the studio on Wednesday with many different ideas and this is the result. It is very different to what I expected to create that day.
