Apples And Pears In A Hallway Framed Print from Fine Art America

The photograph I used as my starting point was taken a year ago at an erstwhile (and that’s another story to be told when I’m ready) friend’s hallway. I threw together a couple of books — vintage copies of Jane Austen’s Emma and Northanger Abbey that I bought from the shop attached to Chawton House in Steventon — a bottle of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey whisky and a wooden ‘bothy’ bowl that I bought from Garden Trading; I’ve since bought several more! The lilies were already on the hall table.

As is my way, I added a couple of textures from Design Cuts and some apples from an image by Leti Kugler at Unsplash.

Oh, I nearly forgot. Some of you might recognise the print on the wall. Yes, it’s Copper Pear.

A flying visit to show there’s a little more order in the house. Not much but a little. The downside is that the word ‘flying’ is a complete misnomer as I’ve overexerted myself and done something to my hip (yes, the one that was replaced a few years ago). This means that my rather grand, brass-effect zimmer frame bought in Crete has come in very handy.

It doesn’t, however, allow for much sorting out of what remains to be done but I’ve employed a delightful handyman who hails from Vienna and has been a local here for many years. He moved a multitude of heavy boxes — yes, those damn books — from one room to the other on Friday, and he is returning to put together some flat pack beds and a couple of other units (Ikea, naturally) Oh, and move more boxes.

In the meantime, life can be very sweet when you least expect it for on the sales front, I’ve sold two of these light switch covers…

This is a delightful vintage photograph from Wikimedia of the seafront at Southwold (not ‘Southwell’, as the site erroneously calls it) on the Suffolk coast, blended with several textures created out of my photographs. I adore the grainy, textured look. I feel it has a touch of John Atkinson Grimshaw about it…and another artist whose name escapes me. Are you reminded of any other artists? Not, I hasten to add, that I’m putting myself on that level! To enhance the whole, I did quite a deal of work on the tone, sharpness, brightness and contrast and so forth.
