Santa Monica 1970

Posted in Painting Diary on February 7, 2016 by Jenny

This is work in progress -from a group of boys by the beach in California, way back. iPad drawing. I drew this on 31st January – in the ancient Celtic Calandar that’s Imbolc – when Brigid the goddess of fire is recovering from giving birth to a young boy God. That’s a very old way of saying it’s the beginning of Spring. 

  

  

Instagram Stranger’s Portrait

This is a portrait I drew on iPad – from a Selfie by a stranger on Instagram. It turned out to be Jack Trewin, a painter, and the son of Simon & Helen Trewin.

I’m drawing in sharpy, water-crayon and ballpoint on large sheets of paper- lots of people in relation to eachother.

First Do No Harm – Hydrangea

Posted in Painting Diary with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 29, 2015 by Jenny

I painted this on my computer and had it digitally printed with additional glazes. There are cameo portraits and a seal inserted too.

It’s the story of how the Hydrangea plant came to Britain, and its medicinal properties first discovered by the Cherokee. Near the bottom is the Hippocratic seal- which accompanies the Hippocratic oath of around 500 BCE, still in use today: “First do no harm…”

There’s information about Peter Collinson of Pekham who imported rare plants in the C18th  HERE
