All that glitters must surely be from Essex

A productive day at the studio.....

The sun was out, the studios were bristling with fellow artists creating.....and my studio space was under attack from twelvety million ladybirds! In amoungst all of this I finished the first painting of my "Essex" series.  As yet untitled, I have included some pictures (only on my camera phone so not best quality).  With this series I hope to show Essex as I view it/how it has been shown by other artists, combined with the Essex that people who don't live here expect to see. The Essex that is all about the superficial, the cheap and tacky that is proliferated by endless Essex girl/boy jokes and by certain TV programmes! The glitter hasn't shown up on these pictures but when I photograph it properly it should.  I've put in some details of parts of the picture.  Proper photo's to follow soon......
