Plenty of Painting
I have been commissioned to do some paintings. Twelve to be precise. A new Psychiatric Ward is being built at a local hospital and it will have plenty of art happening in it. The theme for the work was 'outside in" and they wanted work that would bring the natural world into the building. I have been commissioned to produce twelve 30cm square paintings, four sets of three, that will also work as a whole group of twelve, loosely based on seasons, using plant imagery. I'm pretty damn thrilled by this, worked on painting number one yesterday. I'm starting in Winter as I think it will be more fun to go through the seasons from chilly starkness to luxuriant foliage rather than the other way round!
