Some photos of the Polymorph paintings in Parc Meurig Bethesda

Preparations in the morning

My Polymorphs sat against the trees like tired little deflated creatures. It was a bit more windy than I thought, and again the paintings looked like tiny details in the woods. I think the sun bringing some shadows helped pop up the colours that I chose to be in contrast with the existing colours of the trees.

Branches, dead leaves and moss all ended up on the surface of the canvas, and very quickly some insects started to investigate the paintings.

The weather was much better than last year and lots of people came to see art and performances. A big thank you to Lisa for organising this event every year.

Leaves are turning yellow and red, curling up and falling little by little – yes, it’s that time of the year again:

I am working on three rolls of canvas that will hang loosely from the trees (if all goes to plan! Please please rain and wind, stay away from the woods for one day).

And when coming back from holiday I heard that my painting sold. So bye bye In Limbo 1, I am sure you are in a good home now!
