Sherbet Dib Dab


I am hoping for the best, typing this on a very ropey Internet connection somewhere in Corfu. Yes, without wishing too make you too jealous, I am in fact on holiday here on the isle of olive trees.

Since arriving I have yet to see a cloud. It is not yet quite as relaxing as I thought as the temptations of pool and sea pull me away from sun lounger and small boy wants mme to play games. Today I somewhat foolishly climbed up to a viewpoint. It was an hour of solid climb in 35 degrees, then got lost in the narrow maze of streets in the hilltop village and had to retrace steps back uphill!

Anyway, enough of that for now. Here is my piece for Summer of Colour on the theme of sherbet. Apologies if it takes me a while to get around everyone, as I say, the Internet connection is a bit of a struggle. I was unhappy with the first version of this, so cut it up into pieces and started again. Never give up I say.

  7. Holiday sounds like heaven despite the pulling of maybe too many things to do - always a problem even on holiday - what is it with us modern day peoples? Love the abstract art work - colours make me think of juicy summer drinks.

  8. This is a great piece - love the cubist feel to it - I'm a great advocate of cutting up pieces of art work - they often work better once cut up - this is really fab. Enjoy the rest of your holiday!

  24. Hugely envious of your being in Corfu - it sounds idyllic! I miss foreign holidays but its the sacrafice we made when we got our furbabies - short city breaks is the most we stretch to nowadays. Still, we are seeing plenty of the UK and Ireland in our caravan; just a pity about the dodgy weather. anyway, I hope you have a fabulous holiday and I love this piece - I think the fact you cut it up and rearranged it makes it even better!

  25. I love the way you resolved this and I LOVE these faces- gorgeous work!

  26. I like all of the angles - ok I am ignoring your location!

  29. Hi Lisa! Oh you must be having a wonderful vacation! I'm late getting around to everyone as usual. Your rainbow sherbet piece is so fabulous. It would go very nicely in my studio - lol. I'm very drawn to this contempory play of color and features. Smashing!
