Why, I sometimes wonder, do I take on really complex subjects when I have a tight deadline. Foxgloves are fiddly. But then we all love them.
With an exhibition coming up in St Ives in less than two weeks I have turned my attention to a new coastal piece to replace work sold during Open Studios. Foxgloves are now in flower all along the coast. I have brought a fine specimen into my studio as they are also flowering generously in my garden.
'Huangshan with Clouds' is finished and on the wall. I was curious to see what reaction people visiting the studio during Open Studios Cornwall would have to this unfamiliar landscape and, happily, they love it. More details at http://amandarichardsonartist.com/content/huangshan-clouds
Final adjustments to hanging art in the studio for Open Studios Cornwall which starts tomorrow. I shall be open from 11am. It will be great to see all who can come along.
Open Studios Cornwall is the perfect opportunity to meet and talk to artists about what they create and why. You can learn so much by spending time in their spaces with all their work materials around them. Do come along and have an artistic adventure. I am open Saturday 27th to Monday 29th May and Thursday 1st to Sunday 4th June. I look forward to seeing you here.
The layers of mountains and clouds are coming together in my first Huangshan collage.
Open Studios Cornwall starting on 27th May. It is a great event that is really worth visiting, I hope you will come and see the far west of Cornwall at its loveliest. The studio is good too. http://www.openstudioscornwall.co.uk/artist/amanda-richardson/
