“Cornish Shoal”

Mackerel swimming in a “Cornish Shoal”

A fishing inspired impressionist piece.

Calming with a deep sense of flow and simplistic brush work. Using my favourite colours this really is a statement piece that is inspired by my childhood, mackerel fishing in Cornwall.

“Daymer”

Calming tides at “Daymer”..

Another coast inspired abstract.

I loved creating this… Lots of new techniques and I love the outcome! Acrylic, stone and bronze spray and white ink.

A memory of one of my favourite beaches to take the children…

“Helping Through Art”

20% of all sales will go to charity in February and March.

I am one of over 3m people in the UK who have been excluded from any covid government grants due to not fitting in with the rules.

I have been lucky enough to keep my business going (although only by diversifying) and keep paying my bills (just), but there are thousands who haven’t been so lucky.

Excludeduk.org have been a force of support for so many over the past year and I would like to give back.

All art sales until the end of March 2021 will provide 20% to their charity.

You can view pieces for sale here or on my Instagram (www.instagram.com/artbygillyridge). If it doesn’t have a price, please just get in touch and I’ll let you know if it’s still available.

Thank you.

“Rocky Shores”

It’s been a turbulent time over “Rocky Shores”

One of my photographer friends (www.instagram.com/iamjoncooney) posted an image from his drone and I fell in love with it. I decided then and there that I need to create an abstract painting from it.

I love painting the sea in abstract forms. It has the same type of calming affect on me.

I’m really happy with how it turned out – and love how the gold leaf reflects the light!

“A Cornish Winter’s Sunset”

There’s nothing quite as relaxing as a “Cornish Winter’s Sunset”

A freeing and relaxing piece for me.

It’s been full on over the past couple of weeks homeschooling my youngest and making sure the older two are getting their work submitted on time.

This was a calming painting experience for me.

Paint on… And many, many horizontal strokes of the brush to get the paint mixing and sitting where I wanted it to. It took several days to get right.

What’s been your calming getaway during these difficult times?

“Peacefulness”

My sleeping boy in pure “Peacefulness”

I’ve not been sleeping at all well recently. Averaging about 4 hours broken sleep every night since before Christmas. Last night, I couldn’t stand it any longer, so took the biro and writing pad I keep next to my bed and I sketched my little boy whilst he slept. It took no longer than ten minutes, but it gave me something to concentrate on and calmed my churning brain.

This may be something I revisit in the future to progress into an oil or acrylic painting.

My art journey has been hugely therapeutic for me and still continues to be.

“Mixed Emotions”

A day of “Mixed Emotions”

It’s been one of those days today. I’m poorly, thankfully tested negative for Covid, but I’m exhausted and still having to be “mum”. Decided to paint something with bright colours to raise my mood, but couldn’t quite escape a bit of black for contrast. Exactly representing how I feel today!
