Good morning lovely people. A few weeks ago I mentioned I had been involved in a secret project.. The restoration project is about saving a local historic Aqueduct Cottage in Cromford Derbyshire and to highlight its beautiful natural surroundings & nature. Also featured in a local e newspaper Derwentwise. 

I became involved after seeing a callout for local artists to create paintings on the window & door boards. I couldn’t resist as I’d spent so many years since a child visiting. A beautiful magical place full of nature. You can view all the images on https://lnkd.in/g29eB6z you will notice from my timeline on there how much I enjoy going to the canal. Also in the images on Instagram are the family who lived there in the 1950’s with Frances Fay Barker one of the young children pictured in the black & white photo how beautiful!! So it did mean alot for me to get involved and give something back to the community. I hope you enjoy reading all about it. 

Have a great day everyone

Fragments Of My Mind

About my painting

My painting began Titled “What You Give To Me” hence the apple & the hand representing giving but also a symbol representing birth then as I delved more into my thoughts.  It became not just about “what was given to me” but also about connecting with my past what was given to me naturally and my passing memories and that one split second a memory planted in my mind forever. My artistic process inspired subconsciously by an artist Gustav Klimt I started using patterns that became a symbol of my memories. The painting is part of a series in progress. To be continued…

In the meantime as I’m a committed artist I will be painting my last landscape for a while. The landscape will be for the Winter exhibition at the DH Lawrence Museum.
