Anna and James (who were married in October and whose wedding book I made and posted on) have just been here and chosen their engagement and wedding gifts! Those of you who follow my blog will know that I have been sweating over this ….. not that I am not really happy Anna wanted my artwork for her gifts but the responsibility of offering up artwork that may or may not be loved and cherished is huge. Commissions. Ugh! Anyway, I came up with the idea of doing a number of different things …. settled on offering a choice of four pairs from the 'In Between Dreams' work and some of my vessels.
The 'cool' versions below were chosen, and two of my vessels which compliment each other nicely I think. I am really pleased they went with the cooler version of the work as I have worked with earth colours for so long, but seem to be drawn to blues and more subtle tones at the moment. Of course there is always the 'dark' which seems to be a signature of my work. Will have to try and lighten that too - all sorts of creative changes in 2014 perhaps???
Watch this space!
These images are approximately 30cm x 30 cm and in the flesh there is more to be seen, and the blacks are deeper. Because I have used graphite in a couple of the layers of work, it makes it more difficult to photograph. The photographs are a fair indicator of how they look however. I am just so glad the choice has been made and the work appreciated. A good end to 2013.
