With an exhibition of my work opening at The Salthouse Gallery, St Ives on 13th August I am very focused on this last collage, a breaking wave on Porthmeor Beach.
This is the first of a series of three small collages of the lovely Yellow Island in San Juan County. They are heading for Washington State as part of my exhibition at Waterworks Gallery in mid July.
This is the design for the commission for which I photographed the white wisteria a few weeks ago. It is a portrait of the client's garden, incorporating the elements she most loves. Her husband requested the hen blackbird which nests in the wisteria and forages in this lovely garden.
Rather than make one large collage I have created two of Chocolate Lilies and Buttercups. Both are destined for the exhibition at Waterworks Gallery in Friday Harbor next month.
With an exhibition coming up in July on San Juan Island, Washington State, I am working on several pieces based on the flowers that grow on the San Juans. This piece is of Chocolate Lilies with Buttercups and a Swallowtail Butterfly.
Spot the dots. A parting photograph for Open Studios Cornwall 2016.
The first day of Open Studios and the studio was full of art reflecting the beauty of Cornwall and of people who love Cornwall for that beauty.
'Wood Anemones, Helford River' my latest textile collage, which you can see in my studio during Open Studios Cornwall. For more details of the piece http://amandarichardsonartist.com/content/wood-anemones-helford-river
Open Studios Cornwall begins on Saturday and this year there is a fascinating group of us in the far west. Here is a map Steve Payter has put together to guide you around. Apart from the wonderful art, we live in a beautiful place and the spring wild flowers are amazing. How can you resist.
