I haven't been on here in what feels like aaaages!! I have been busy with all sorts and trying to manage my time effectively, ah ya, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't lol.
This evenings blog post is about a commission I have just handed over and can finally show you all ... Phew!! As you know I try my hand at anything that will give me the opportunity to create and to use my passion of drawing and painting to recreate personal gifts and ideas. On creating such pieces I often question or think about the pieces that I have been asked to draw or paint; why people want such pieces and I also love hearing about the stories behind some of them. The recurring theme is most definitely memories or moments in time. My aim when creating any piece is to try and recreate feelings and emotional responses through the medium of art. Always thinking of the person, place or story whilst creating the piece..
Ciara got in touch through my facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/JaneHoganArtist/#. She was looking to get a drawing done of her current family home which has been in the family for quite some time as they are considering a move to a quiter, countryside location. I was only too happy to oblige and very grateful to do this.
Below are some of the photos I took during the process of creating this drawing. I hope you enjoy. x
Dot, dot, dot, dot, dotting ...to recreate those hedges!
The end piece always professionally mounted.
Thank a million for reading,
Art and creativity is in my heart! Always dreaming ...
