No I'm not talking double dutch, apparently 'Daffadowndillies' is another name for daffodils! I thought it was such a fun sounding name for them that I've used it for the title of my painting this month, I'm also calling it a 'Marmite' painting because I'm not sure if I love it or hate it!
I have tried to experiment with this painting, I've gone with my gut instinct and attempted to be bold and adventurous with it. I like certain aspects of it how it's turned out ie the daffodils themselves, I like the texture of the painting too, and some of the colour, but I'm not sure if the background and foreground of the painting have worked.
What do you think?
Do you love it or hate it?
I'd love to hear from you. Be honest, I won't be offended!
Other news this month...
I've become a member of the 'Isle of Wight Creative Network' which is a unique programme designed to help creatives and artists on the Isle of Wight develop their practice and am delighted to find out that I have been successful in being chosen for one of the special opportunities they had on offer which is 1-2-1 creative business mentoring with Mick Smith.
I've also confirmed my Open Studios dates which will be Tuesday 19th July - Saturday 23rd July 2022 where I will be exhibiting my work in the back room of Godshill Methodist Church, Godshill, Isle of Wight, PO38 3HZ.
