new found passion

For a long time I considered still life painting as boring; something we had to do in fifth form art in order to pass. That all changed in April after popping into gallery thirty three in Wanaka & seeing the work of Glenda Randerson. All I can say is that I was speechless, & still am. I had my nose right up against the work - almost touching! - as I took it all in.

(Thats a funny thing I do - if I cant touch something then I need to get as close to it as I can. And that usually means leaning right in & inspecting every little inch. Is anyone else the same?? haha.)

If you ever come across work by Glenda I fully recommend checking it out. Its simple, but it has a quality to it that is just so magical.
