Pheonix rising —and gone!

I am both happy and somewhat sad this week. I exhibited several of my paintings at Ytterbium, the 2019 Eastercon — a science fiction convention that was held across the Easter weekend. Amazingly I sold three paintings, which is wonderful, but this means that I will never see my lovely Phoenix again. She’s off to Los Angeles California and this is all I now have of her:

Here I am at the Eastercon Art Show with my paintings:

Painting and Poem: Art for my sake

P1180444Art for my sake

Brush in hand
I decide on the first stroke
Relieved to have got this far
Having chosen what to paint
Searching through ideas
Photos
Then mixing the colours
A bit of this
No, not that
Thinning, adding
Finally
Pausing
Contemplating the paper
That moment of peace
Stillness
Before I take action
