These paintings done on plates with a textured background, were inspired by the texture that is found on old decaying buildings falling apart.
These buildings, have this fascinating
mixture of different layers of paint mixed with damp wall paper, and peeling walls.
I am into old buildings, they are intriguing and fascinating to me.
Last week, I visited a 120yr old building and the texture and patina on the zinc shed in the yard, with different shades of reds and browns was really rich.
The main house, was once a small manor and the same could be said for the walls, for there where layers and layers
of peeled surface each showing coats of paint, mixed with wallpaper installed by previous inhabitants of the property.
Each former owner, putting their mark on these walls.
While others that were present, saw decay and sighed, I saw unintended Art in the making and I love that.
I was inspired, to recreate my impression of these walls on plates............. Enjoy !
