We move forward from two successful exhibitions in 2016 in Prague and in the USA to the challenge of an exhibition in the Netherlands in the Autumn. We continue to work on A2 sized pieces in portrait format and will be producing four pieces over the year with the theme of 'Freedom'. An essential part of our art is working in series to a common format which does give us all a framework for our creative endeavours.

Foxgloves abstracted - The Foxglove glade at Hidcote Gardens
Both the A2 pieces this year have been based on a photograph taken in the Foxglove glade in dappled shade at Hidcote in Warwickshire. I abstracted down to the shades of colour for this second piece based on foxgloves - still working with hand dyed silk - some overdyed to get the shades of mauve and purples for the range of foxgloves. How this will develop for others in this years series - I am not sure - I have also been screen printing with discharge paste some Foxglove imagery so who knows......
