Landscape from Scotland

Wild In Scotland by Polly Jones
I think I mentioned a while back that I now have work over on Ugallery. This is my latest painting on their site. You can see it and the others at the link here.  Below is a profile they did of me on their blog.

New UGallery Artist: Polly Jones

Polly Jones’s still life paintings are inspired by a sense of joy in the everyday. Her life journey thus far has been very serendipitous, with everything leading her to the life of an artist.

A Little Close 
All aspects of the work are pleasing, from the lovely objects she chooses, to the warm colors and fun perspectives. She paints at home in a former sun porch converted into a studio full of windows, which she shares with her husband who is also an artist. Her paintings depict the timeless and traditional subject of the still life in a contemporary way.

Still Life at Night 
Although the work has subtle art historical references, drawing inspiration from impressionists such as Henri Matisse, it feels very much her own. Polly incorporates mixed media and collage into the art using maps and pages of old books to create an added layer of meaning and dimension. The work feels like a satisfying memoir, made up of home, family, love, and an appreciation for the small things in life.

Thanks for the link. That is a great site! Love 'Back In Time' and 'Still Life with Ghosts.' Had so much fun hanging them on the virtual wall. :)
