I figured it was time to post up some of the stuff I've done recently,
most of which has been part of Tara's course,
and outside my usual comfort zone!

First up is this one.
 Painted with an old membership card and some clingfilm.
I did use a brush for the words though.

More card painting,
and some stuck on wordy bits this time.

And then there's this.
 This is the biggest canvas I've ever worked on,
3' x 2'
which was a little daunting to start with,
but then quite liberating.
The lettering has now been removed as I don't like it.

And last of all, there's this.
Not really sure about this.
It's ok, but the face isn't brilliant,
and she looks more like a he.
It may be reworked,
time will tell.

And that's it really.
Life carries on,
Good days,
bad days.
But spring is here and summer's on the way
so who knows what will happen next?


  1. Hello Hello Dear Nigel ~ you have been busy...
    Your Balance piece really speaks to me and your no fear card is very powerful too!
    Working on a large canvas is something I have yet to try...
    I salute you!
    Happy April...Happy Spring!

  2. Nigel, these are great! i love the large canvas one, the one with the moon. i also love the FEAR one, and the fact that you stuck your words smack on the word "fear" other words, *don't mess with me, fear!* ;-) Fabulous that you were able to take Tara's course. Art courses always help move us forward, in our own way. Happy weekend Nigel! xx

  3. it is so great to see you being creative and expressive again, Nigel. thank you for sharing your works which are powerful and delicate at the same time. Thank you for your like :) on fb as well!

  4. I love the first one, I used those words in one of my poems somewhere, the colours in it are striking.
