Abstract Art

As part of my OCA Textile degree course I had to study modern art in Understanding Western Art.  I've never really liked it but as I've learnt more I have started to appreciate some of it more.  I still think some of it is a case of the 'Emperors new clothes' you know what I mean ........ we are told it is art by the experts so it must be???

Anyway I thought I'd have a go at some Abstract art and here are a few of my attempts at it

Acrylic on Watercolour

and my favourite Oil on Canvas.

 I think I've inadvertently painted an abstract impression of ‘reflections’ in oil.  I can see it being a basis for a textile piece using my embellisher.

Hillsborough .......

.... it is 24 years since Liverpool fans went to watch their football team in the FA cup semi-final and 96 didn't return.  At long last the families are nearing the end of their long journey for the Truth.

Justice for the 96
