Sun Circle


I'm slowly getting back to some semblance of normality, and decided to clear out the paint studio, as there was altogether too much in it for me to contemplate actually working up there. So, I discovered several paintings that I'd forgotten I'd made, including one Very Big one, quite how I forgot that one, I'm not entirely sure... and, once that was done, and I'd cleared space on my table, I was able to work on a little quilt that my friend Sally Bramald sent me to paint. As always, the quilting on it was exquisite...it's just that, while brushing blue onto the centre circle, she managed to spill the paint...only to discover, as most of us have at some point, that (a) spilled paint goes everywhere and (b) once it's on, it's on... However, her loss was my gain, and I had a pleasant time adding more paint; I only hope she likes the end result. I think I may foil it...give it a glisten or two. Sun Circle it is, and it deserves to shine. And I have to say, it looks better in real time than it does in this photo...sorry, Sally!

Marion I love this piece, spilled paint and all. It reminds me of some of the Gaudi circles in the ceiling under the Greek pavillion in Park Guell, Barcelona. I think it's not just because it's a colorful circle but also because the paint "speckles" look rather like Gaudi's mosaic work.

Mosaics or speckled birds eggs. Either way I love the interplay between the beautiful quilting and the painting.
