New Work

Filed under: — franamie @ 10:24 am

Post MA.  - Still looking for my new project.  Meanwhile I needed to make a painting for the latest Artel show – “Prelude.”  One painting suggested another.    The subject was of the moment – The Royal Wedding – a prelude to a new style of monarchy to come,  a prelude to a new shared life role.   The first painting is romantic, the second is fun:  the celebratory, holiday mood of the nation.

Detail 60 x 80cms  Oil on canvas

  1. frances these are lovely! i especially like the second one – it really captures the playful, fun side of things whilst still somehow retaining an element of a sense of the historicity of the occasion. sorry i haven’t commented before – for some reason when i put your name into google your website doesn’t come up, and this time it only came up attached to something else. anyway, it is now bookmarked!
    off to miro in 30 mins – will report back in due course!
