Winter Miniatures in progress …

Above – walking through city snow (I hope that’s what it looks like!)

Below – today’s paintings for the Winter Miniatures exhibition and open studio day, which launches Sunday 8th December 2pm.

All details Here

I took photos of these in electric light, so it doesn’t show colours quite accurately. Winter evenings are such a pain for painting and photography! I’ll be uploading them in higher quality tomorrow.

‘North’ cello piece

As mentioned a few days ago, my friend, the composer/cellist Atzi Muramatsu, offered to create a musical response to his favourite paintings from the Snowscapes series. He emailed his music piece to me a few days ago and I’ve had time today to put together a two-minute video montage (below)

I love the way Atzi’s music draws me into his response to the paintings,¬† often re-inspiring ideas. In this case I’m inspired to play around with black ink – allowing subtle effects to happen with salt and ink, suggesting space and depth through layers and transparent glazes.

Hope you enjoy the video¬† – ‘North’…
