New Painting * Love in a time of Ebola – Acrylic on Canvas

Hello!!! Long time! I hope everyone is well?
Things have been a bit quiet here but lots has been happening behind the scenes most of which have been documented on my instagram here
https://www.instagram.com/joanneseale

But I will try to start a new weekly news roundup for my blog and website. Watch this space!!

So this new painting sort of evolved from an abstract art exercise that developed into a painting about current affairs.
It is called ‘Love in a time of Ebola’ and features acrylic on canvas.. Yes I am now working regularly on canvas!!
The painting sort of just appeared but it started with the eyes.
I don’t know where the Ebola reference came from but it was probably something that I had been reading and thinking about.
The 2 figures sort of look like either space travellers or androids and that meant something to me too.
But art is really about what you see in an image.
This painting is about affection, needs, love, distance, restriction, health, humanity etc etc.

New Quotes Lady* You Are Enough – Acrylic Ink and Paint on Paper

Hello everyone! I hope you are well?
Yesterday I finished another quotes lady!! Whoo! In this painting I wanted to express how often we can look outside ourselves for validation and assurance that everything is ok.
But I think it is true to say that resting in ones self and being true to yourself can offer the best sense of wholeness and security possible.
It can take a lot of work to get to that stage, a lot of people refer to this as ‘The Work’ but I think it is a journey we all need to go on for a more fulfilling life.

New Painting * Elephant Hawk Moth – Acrylic on Canvas

I love painting moths! It has been a while since I’ve made a nature painting so I decided to paint a Elephant Hawk-Moth!

The colours are delicious, like strawberry and lemon sorbet, it’s form is so sublime and aerodynamic that I decided to accentuate the lines to create an almost arrow-like shape.

It makes me wonder how many millions of years it took for nature to create something of such perfection. Can you imagine if you or I were given that task??

This will be the first canvas that I am putting up for sale, I am learning to let go of my paintings and offer them to new homes :)
Please find the details of the sale here

New Painting – The Cracks – Acrylic on paper

Hello everyone! I hope you are well.
I’ve been managing to work on quite a few new paintings and paper projects recently, its so nice to be in the flow of creating again, it took quite a lot of effort to get back on track but hopefully it will be a smooth and interesting ride from here on in.
This painting was inspired by a Life Book 2018 lesson, I love the texture in the painting the curved forms and earth tones. I can’t say i’ve ever made a painting like this before but would like to make more!
