Triptych trip

Posted by Lidya Endzo Kun iLLa
I have begun work on a new abstract in oils (the Snow Trees is still drying, needless to say). This one was inspired by some artwork I saw in a pop video and I’ve been trying out some rough ideas first. Here’s one of them. It is going to be a set of three, which apparently is called a triptych.
I’m firmly in the run-up to the art group’s exhibition now, and trying to make sure I have plenty to put on show, and that I’m exhibiting stuff that’s worth buying. Soon I will be deciding which paintings are my best, and ordering mounts for Elizabeth and myself (we’ll share the postage costs). Elizabeth doesn’t have a computer to order mounts, and can’t use the group’s mount cutter, as she gets arthritis in her hands. I have difficulty getting good results myself. It costs about the same to buy ready-cut mounts, as long as they are not too big, and will give a better result.

John came out with one of his classic jokes at art group this week: “What do you call a woman who is able to unfreeze cows? Thora Hird” Ha ha. Kevin continued to work on his moody Whitby seascape in oils, and Karen had begun a lilac coloured rose with a dark background. She was ready for a change from the leopard she’d been doing. Sue was using some real ivy to complete her painting of an owl in a gothic arched window, and Gill added glitter to her theatrical masks painting, to good effect. One of the masks she’d been painting did have actual glitter on it.

I visited Worksop library’s exhibition space this week and there was a collection of pet and owner photographic portraits by Sue Packer. She aims to show the rapport between the person and animal. It often takes a few sessions for them both to be relaxed enough to be photographed. Sue’s exhibition is also on at the Harley Gallery at the same time, from 5th Feb-22nd March. All the photos I saw were black and white, and most did show the owner’s face, although the emphasis was on the pets themselves.
