Do You Want To Trade? (Trade completed)

Long Series #115.

Long Series #115.

Every now and then I like to trade with other artists.

Over the years I’ve put together a nice little collection, and many paintings are on my walls. Each year we rehang our collection, and it’s interesting to see how our taste and interests have changed. Most of the work we have is figurative or abstract, and lately I’ve been more interested in abstract or nonobjective art . We only have a couple landscapes, and a few paintings of flowers, and I really have lost interest in the landscape. Most of the work that we have is of modest scale, but we have works in many different media.

I traded this painting for a selection of artist postcards with the Theo Collective in Hamburg and Amsterdam. It’s a mixed media on paper 12×12 inches, and it’s an early piece from my Long Series (#115) of paintings.

A Postcard From Exeter.

Yesterday I received a great postcard from the blogger and artist Cath Rennie. A few weeks ago we arranged an exchange, and hopefully she will receive my card this week.

Her work is a beautiful piece of art, and I’m really delighted to add it to my collection. It’s one f those pieces that I will spend a lot of time looking at, and each time I’ll find something new. Cath has two great blogs and you should check them out. Settle and Chase, and Blanket and Bone.
