Hello from sunny England. We’ve had such a good summer for a change! It has meant that I’ve not worked during the hot hours of the day and caught up in the evening instead. But I’ve had a whale of a time taking advantage of my friend’s pool to keep cool and refreshed. Sitting on an inflatable ring floating in a pool in the sun does feel like time stops for a while! Very blissful 🙂
I do have 2 new paintings to show you, “Tranquility VI” and the first of a new series entitled, “Spanish Quietude”.
“Spanish Quietude” is inspired by the amazing landscapes I experienced whilst staying in the Spanish mountains in the Almeria region the 2 times I’ve been over in the last year. Its such a beautiful and peaceful place. I wanted to capture the heat of the land up in the mountains, the absence of surface water as it’s so dry, and the distant bluey purple mountains.
Apart from painting I have opened up a new shop online which has stock of my new 2017 calendars, copies of the Whispers of the Landscape book, and some artisan jewellery made by yours truly.
This is just 4 of the pendants available. These pendants are made with resin set in a silver plated tray and come with a sterling silver snake chain. I love the colours and the painterly effect. New ones are being added all the time – just making some heart shaped ones at the moment – and they are very affordable. They will make lovely gifts. SilverWrenGifts
I will soon have paintings available to buy from my website too. The webpage takes a little while to get right, so bear with me!
That’s all for now folks.
