All Happed Up for the Road

Delighted to say I have just SOLD this lovely oil painting “Happed Up” of an old gentleman walking down the street in Carmarthen, catching the bright warming, descending sun on his face. I just loved the gentle warm colours on this sheep skin jacket and the inky blue of the door and the flaky, powdery colours of the damp wall behind. The title “Happed Up” is an Northern Irish expression meaning to dress up warm against the cold. Although the winter sun gives the impression of being warm, there was a nippy bite to the December air. The photograph that inspired this painting was taken on the same street and the same day as the one that inspired the painting “Saturday Shop” which has also been sold. My husband loves this painting so will be sad to see it go.

From Ilston With Love

Delighted to say I have just SOLD this lovely painting “A Tree by Ilston Brook” via Artfinder –

I have painted a series of paintings similar to this painting which are all inspired a rural area close to my home in Swansea, called,  Ilston Cwm, in the Gower Peninsula.

I will be blogging later in the week about this lovely area of Outstanding beauty and posting an accompanying video so that you can see it’s beauty and inspiration for yourself.
