So a couple of weeks ago I submitted a bunch of my paintings for this art festival that went on in Chichester. The organiser was looking for artists, so I asked "what for?" and they said "an art maze!"and I said "okay, count me in!". That's basically how it went down. The theme was Myth/Enchantment/Conspiracy, so I painting a load of owls.............. I was already painting owls, so just continued on with what I was doing and hoped that people would be able to link the theme with my paintings.
Here they all are on show:
There were a few pieces cut out from this shot, but you get the idea.
So that is what I have been up too. Painting owls.
Here are some better pictures of some of the new paintings.
This one I love. I bought this frame of preloved.co.uk for £8.00. Bargain! It is just plastic, but it looks really cool. Mind the glare in the photo, I have to re-take this one. I call this one the "bad owl". I am so uncreative with the naming of my paintings.
I call this one the cardinal. This bird's hands creep me out.. I love it!
Click this one to see it bigger. He's holding a tiny cat.
I love this one too. Also a tiny cat on it's head.
The Bird King?
Owl made from crows. Creepy? A little bit.

There are loads more. Check out the website or the facebook to see them all. Most of them are for sale as well. And I need to sell them as I am seriously getting over-run with art.
Well since the last update I've been home to Canada for 3 weeks and done loads of wedding planning. I have managed to fit in an entire new series of paintings though. I've just not had time to update blogs and fb... but when I say 'not had time' I really mean 'couldn't be bothered'.
There is this Art and Music festival in Chichester that I've taken part in (very small). They've built this maze full of art and I added some paintings to it. So in 2.5 weeks I painted 19 new paintings, all bird related. Hoorah!
Heres a taste, more to come later.
This one I did a year or so ago (just the bird). It started out as just a random tea stain which evolved into a bird. I added the doodles recently. Much better.
