Here’s part two of my review of 2018, all the paintings, prints and sketches I have sold via www.Artfinder.com or direct via my own website at www. emmacownie.artweb.com. Quite a few were commissions.
Yesterday was Clyne Farm’s first Christmas Market and we were blessed with sparkling crisp sunshine. It was very popular.
Although I don’t think that I paint cows all that often, they have added up over the years.
As a painter, I feel that I have succeeded if I my work can provoke an emotional reaction.
In part one of this walk from Llanmadoc to Llanrhidian I walk along the edge of the salt marshes of north Gower coast and find a dark story from the Second World War.
My walk to Whiteford Point. This is seen by many as the wildest and most remote part of Gower, on its furthest northern tip.
Shadows were my first love. They still are. It’s hard to find any painting of mine without blue/mauve/purple/brown shadows. When I get hold of an idea I can get quite obsessive about it. Lately, it’s been early morning light.
Gower boasts two gems that most visitors never see. They are Three Chimneys, a set of sea arches, and a massive rock pool known as Blue Pool.
A series of landscape paintings of Gower peninsula, where I have started to apply my “Urban minimal” rules.
On Tuesday I sold my 600th painting via the online gallery www.artfinder.com.
