Dear Inside Out Artists

Long time no post! I’m now nine weeks since my hip op and thinking about a get together. Would a Friday in the Willow Gallery suit people? I’m suggesting Friday 29 September usual time 2.0 ish. If this is a really difficult day for some of you, let me know. dianabaur@hotmail.com


Diana is getting ready to take part in this exhibition coming up shortly in Camarthen.

“Diana sketches regularly in her local countryside of North Wales, and so inspiration also comes from the hills and bye ways where she lives. A welcome and surprising developmental fusion of her abstract paintings with the beautiful hilly landscapes around her has driven her to develop the body of work on display.”

 

Recently I have also been creating some very small abstract landscape paintings e.g. below.

Fabulous trip to Ruth Thomas, printmaker!

img_0576

A group of us had a splendid morning visiting Ruth Thomas, Print Maker who lives beyond Ruthin. We were welcomed into her beautiful studio with tea and biscuits.

Ruth began by telling us about her art story and how she arrived at printing. She talked us through some of her works and explained how they are made, and then did a couple of demonstrations. This was later followed by a hands-on session trying out some printing and using the press.

Ruth’s studio is, as they say “to die for”! A good size, purpose built and flooded with light. Every window looks out on beautiful countryside.

Ruth is inspired with the forms of the natural world and uses them a lot in her work. She offers courses on a regular basis and we have agreed that she will send Diana details for them to be posted up here and on Borderland Visual Arts website and Facebook pages. So watch this space! Huge thanks to Ruth for a wonderful day!
