A good friend suggested this title for another piece – but for me it could be the title for a whole new series. This drawing has just been completed and I have several large head sculptures ready to go into the fire (pics will be posted soon). sweet siren song is mixed media on arches hot press 320lb. 120 x 100 cm watercolour, gesso, acylic, conte, pastel and charcoal.
I must admit I had been feeling a little raw and exposed – out on a limb – but fantastic news this afternoon I have sold a substantial number of works from my show – sheer bliss – the feeling is fantastic.
