more secrets revealed… look dear reader, here are the three miniature postcard paintings i recently created for RCA Secret 2013!
[three postcard paintings in the artist’s studio, shelved]
i spent quite a lot of time on these three small paintings – a whole afternoon, which is probably quite a long time in RCA postcard terms. i liked working with a limited range of colours and i enjoyed painting the grid-like pattern, but they’re still a little bit rustic.
they appear to recall aerial maps of fields, or crossroads, bridge intersections… you get the drift. i was thinking of the time when i went up in a hot-air balloon (a birthday treat many years ago) and whether i would like to do it again.
looking at them again (in a photograph) i can also see small elements of stained-glass or leaded windows.

i hope someone liked these postcards enough to buy them, and they weren’t too disappointed to discover that i am one of the unknown artists in the postcard art ensemble.
here are the scans of the three postcards i made (yes, i know – very organised) moments before they were placed in an envelope and posted to the RCA for the Secret exhibition:
[postcard #1, RCA Secret 2013]
[postcard #2, RCA Secret 2013]
[postcard #3, RCA Secret 2013]
i have a strange feeling i will be making very small paintings in the future, but that’s another story for another day.
