Watercolour again – still find it incredibly challenging, still aiming for a lightness of touch that eludes me.
Veil of Tears
My art has always been my self taught form of therapy . It started in my art journals, a place to express in images what I couldn’t always put into words.
Why I won’t be in Spring Fling 2023
I missed the deadline to apply to Spring Fling this year. This is the long explanation of how life (and death) got in the way.
The paintings that never were
What the hell was I thinking?! How self-doubt stole my paintings.
Not the summer we planned
I have a rather poorly husband at the moment, but have been able to squeeze in a little experimentation with oil and cold wax.
I really do find watercolour one of the hardest and most unforgiving mediums to use. Having the right paper and good brushes is a good starting point and good quality paints of course.
Hi, I’m Glenda
I am an artist and web/graphic designer living in Scotland’s most southerly village near the Mull of Galloway.
I live ten minutes walk from the beach and living on a long narrow peninsula means there are lots of beaches and cliff top walks within a few miles of my home.
My paintings are influenced by the landscape, but also by the stories of my past and the healing and therapeutic benefits that I have discovered through the process of art journaling.
I love to create strong, colourful abstract paintings using acrylics and oils. I don’t work to commission, preferring to be free to let my intuition guide me.
