Gorgeous new paintings in Acrylic on Acrylic Paper by Lynette Joy.

Gorgeous new paintings in Acrylic on Acrylic Paper by Lynette Joy.

Lynette has told me that she has been influenced by Klimt which you can easily see in the one with the patterning and rich tangerine colour and the other is an expressionist abstract painting that just has to be made by every artist for the release of energy. This one in particular has a strength and engery that needs to be seen in real life.  Will post exhibition information that will come up in the next few months.

Kathy’s paintings have a personal narrative and are very dear to her heart.   I asked if I could show some of these images from her collection so here they are.   kathy pic6                          kathy pic7 kathy pic8                                                                  kathy pic9

This is what my street looks like at the moment as Autumn is upon us.

This is what my street looks like at the moment as Autumn is upon us.

autI rake the leaves out into the street and wait for the street sweeper to come and take them away.  Others see me and get out their rakes and so on and so on, thinking that I know when the street sweeper is coming.  I don’t. Then we start over again.  But I secretly like this activity because there are not so many physical demands around the house and this one I find a pleasure.

I recently saw some beautiful quirky drawings by Kathy Siganakis and will endeavour to post some of these images with her permission soon.

Artist Lynette Webber’s clay sculpted head is a work in progress.

Artist Lynette Webber’s clay sculpted head is a work in progress.

Lynette Webber is a painter, printmaker and all round artist in our out of the Box group and you can also add sculptor to that.  Lynette is also working towards our exhibition titled SEVEN.  As we are all still experimenting with ideas and media I can’t at this early stage tell you where SEVEN fits into the title.  All the same he is a beautiful character and I can’t wait to see him finished.IMG_5831 IMG_5832Love the ears!

still life bottles 3This is one of the first still life paintings I have made for the series, small, acrylic and pencil.

a1 These two are photographs of some still life set ups that I Anne Warren  have yet to attempt.  I’m liking the one on the left but not the one on the right.  My rooms are currently full of borrowed bottles, jugs, vases from friends and neighbours for me to paint.a2
