oil on stretched canvas.
Glenda painted Australian sea one January to cheer in the darkness. This is a single wave breaking capturing the light and the white foam and lifting the yellow sand into the wave.
This part of a collection featuring printing and boats. Parts of this image is made with a stencil which was also used as a print block. Boats are this years theme and this boat is still on a still sea. Last One!
Through the Hedge
The composition of this piece was interesting with the challenge of making the road look like it was goinf down hill. The greens are tonally accurate and the church does appear in the gap in the hedge as you travel down this road. St Mary's Bottesford Leicestershire UK.
Experimenting with Fibonacci patterns and leaves. Glenda used the colours from leaves from her gum tree and employed her distinctive tiny strokes.
This is based on a small pen sketch drawn from a bus the other side of Broken Hill NSW travelling from Adelaide in Australia. A memory worth keeping.
Inspired by the quilts at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham. Glenda experimented with masking to make the straight lines. Some of the designs have printed aspects.
The Whole Earth Sings
After experimentation with printing, mostly lost underneath, this bright and beautiful garden sprang forth in song, singing to the heavenly bodies.
30 x 12 inches
Trinity Shadow started as a tiny doodle in a sketch book maid while listening to a podcast. It was Trinity Sunday and the three small lines are reminiscent of trinity with the unity and wholeness of the circle representing a whole or the oneness of God. Although overall this painting is not a vibrant as Glenda’s other paintings it does contain a lot of pure colour. The repeat of the shape at the top is like a shadow indicating the otherness and almost elusiveness of God especially as we try to grasp 3 in 1.
City Beneath a Tree
32” x 12”
This oil painted started with the interesting shape of the branches. The leaves are painted over a blue sky. Some of the green has been putted off with a blending tool.
Glenda was inspired to put some houses based on her City of God series. The paths in front reflect the tree branches. Glenda stokes of oil paint finished off the painting with a textured foreground including some stencilling.
Varnished. This is from a photo that fascinated Glenda because of the straight line down the light house separating light and shadow. She also was amazed by the steep steps and how to paint them. More details.
