My Magna Carta 800

Posted in Art Prints, Digital Art, Painting Diary with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 15, 2015 by Jenny

The Magna Carta was signed by King John at Runnymede, on 15th June 1215. Today being the 15th January, I’m five months early for the 800th anniversary. That’s because I’m also celebrating the impact of the Magna Carta on America, where it became an icon of Liberty under Law, and the basis for the Constitution. The MC is currently on display at the Library of Congress until celebrations start up in England in the Spring.

The Magna Carta is a uniquely important document, enshrining Free Speech and ‘Habeas Corpus’ in law. It was drafted by the Archbishop of Canterbury and sent to Runnymede on behalf of 40 English Barons back in 1215. There it was signed and sealed by King John. Queen Elizabeth II is patron of the Magna Carta Trust and this year’s Magna Carta 800 Celebrations.

This print, “My Magna Carta 800″, is my homage to the ‘Great Charter’. It’s based on an oil painting I did last year. Prices are much lower and editions much larger than usual.

Walberswick Beach

Oil on canvas. In Suffolk in early August, I saw an Indian family on the beach at Walberswick, right near the spot where Phillip Wilson Steer painted those Edwardian girls in the captivating, glinting sea light.

Help To Buy Scheme

Posted in Painting Diary with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 12, 2013 by Jenny

Oil on canvas. The colours are a bit richer than they appear here. It’s inspired by a vintage photograph of a young laundress sleeping in the street. She has half an eye open to protect her livelihood: a mobile laundry wringer kept close by her makeshift bed.

Lakshmi

Posted in Painting Diary with tags , , , , on October 5, 2013 by Jenny

Painting, oil on canvas, of Lakshmi.
She is the Hindu Goddess of material and spiritual prosperity, good fortune, and the embodiment of beauty. It is customary to pay her homage particularly in the month of October. Mahalakshmi is the mother of the universe. She is often seen with an elephant and swans and stands on a lotus flower, symbol of beauty and calm non-attachment.
