I find it delightful how my art direction morphs and fine tunes. It's now been a year since I left my regular source of income and returned to being a full time artist. "I took the path less travelled..and that has made all the difference". My very first introduction to the French Impressionists, by my school Art Teacher, has begun a life time love of their work and style and given me a wonderful benchmark for my own work. My focus is Impressionism and my favourite topics have become ancient villages and fields of flowers. Recent travels have now enabled me to work from my own photographic material, so my new works will cover winter in the UK/Paris, and Autumn in Queenstown. The seasons with their light and colour are what drives the Impressionist to capture it on canvas. This week I start this new series.
