|"perennial symbols from the botanic realm"|
This is the not quite finished, not perfectly photographed work from a couple of months ago that today I updated onto my website. I retitled it from the working title... so now it will be known as ...
"perennial symbols from the botanic realm" A diptych it's 150 cm x 150 cm and is acrylic and canvas on linen.
The website I've been using is a free website ... Weebly ... and I put it together last year in something of a hurry ... thinking perhaps it might need to be replaced at a later date. I have found it surprisingly workable... with improvements being made by the provider frequently... or more likely my grasp of what's possible improves as I go along.
I found a new slideshow facility today at the website that wasn't on offer last year .... so if you click here you can go see for yourself the new work I've posted up... some paintings and a series of small exercises on canvas boards.
I was delighted to have wonderful blogger friend Mary Zeran post this work above titled "nature patterning" and other works on Tumblr this week which happily brought a little traffic my way...
Then I discovered South African Robyn Gordon of Art Propelled renown had posted this on tumblr below... thanks Robyn!!!

“I really do prefer to give the ideas time to surface… and I need to work repetatively with impulses to make them part of my vocabulary or language… a way has to be found into the rhythm that works … quite simply.” - Sophie Munns
This was a lovely surprise as she quoted me with the image which is actually a close-up of this work titled "Contiuum II" below:
You'll also notice a series of 8 works like this one below, each 20 x 20 cm, on canvas boards that were little exercises in colour really... Ive included them in the slideshow viewing as well.
