Sleepless night

When I get into an obsessive state of mind about a creative project I don’t sleep! Last night I kept thinking of adding blue to this platter, and so I had to try it out this morning. I also painted two more pieces with the same concept. This platter you see here is just dried white clay with under glaze painted on it. I will be firing it in the coming days and will be sure to post the finished result…zzz

Unknown Path

I painted this several years ago when I made a decision to leave a relationship and take an unknown path. It was a huge turning point in my life. I remember being so afraid at the time and yet I still had a feeling deep inside that everything would be ok. And you know what? It was! I guess we all get those moments where we decide to travel an unknown path. I’m sure many of you can relate to this? The painting is painted in one colour, raw umber. I wanted it to be very simple and expressive.
