Paintings come in many styles, Realism, Abstract, vibrant  Art 
Deco and the romantic Impressionism of Monet,
old masters and new such as Van Gogh and Picasso’s colourful
Cubism soon catch the eye when on display,
the media can vary from acrylic paint and tubes of watercolour 
to charcoal, pencils and pigments mixed with oil,
stretching canvas over a wooden frame and priming, creating 
a painting then adding texture with gold leaf foil.

Planning the composition of a seascape and sketching the 
fine contour lines after taking the easel outside,
using a background colour wash then creating movement and 
detail with the sun highlighting the receding tide,
a damp sable round tip brush picks up the watercolour base 
then requires cleaning in a water filled glass jar,
mixing the blocks of colours in shallow pans, checking that 
the perspective is correct, adjusting for near and far.

Sitting patiently upon hexagonal pieces of blonde wood 
honeycomb, a three tone expertly carved bumble bee,
talented sculptors past and present, have left a wealth of
aesthetic sculptures and figures to revere, touch and see,
using upcycled metal and heat to fabricate a copper coloured
running hare results in a stunning life like design,
a high level of artistry and skill is required to create a life 
sized polished silver horse with flowing elegant lines. 

Using a potter’s wheel produces a rimmed rose bowl with a 
a colourful kiln fired glaze painted on the clay,
sculpting can form exceptional modern pieces of art and 
figurines from base materials used every day,
whether using a brush, chisel, welder or throwing clay with 
skilled hands, the art of creating you loved so dear,
whenever I see a captivating picture, drawing or sculpture,
this brings you ever closer, brings you ever near.

Beloved Mother  Jane Farthing 1929- 2017   

A poem can express innermost emotions after the loss of a loved one or friend.
My poetry is written to be gently uplifting and evocative, reminding the reader or listeners of the loved one or friend’s love of creating art.
My poems have been very well received at both church and crematorium services, adding a very personal accolade.

 Photos coming soon.
