Crescent Moon acrylic on canvas (12"x 10")
I've always admired the work of Mary Fedden and Winifred Nicholson. Their use of colour and beautiful simplicity of subject matter excites me. So I waited with longing for my Winifred Nicholson book to arrive.
When it did I pleasurably feasted upon her colours, lyrical lines, her soft blending of sky to sea and was transported to where she had been, to her very life and there we became friends, her and I.
Somehow I'm always looking to my next work, new work, a new way of expressing my choice of colour and subject matter. One day I like what I've painted the next day it's 'old hat' and I must go on searching for that which satisfies. Of course I realise that will never happen. 'But it's the journey' I hear you cry and you're right- so on I go!
