There are two things I can’t do when I’m unhappy: paint and drink (alcohol). I have found that I can only paint when I am in my ‘happy place’ – without pressure of work or housework or the expectations of others. And I only drink when I’m happy. The thought of crawling into a bottle when the world is too much for me … is, strangely, too much for me. So my painting is sporadic, and that’s not good for it because to be an ‘artist’ you need to be at it all the time. I suppose that makes me a painter, as opposed to an artist. I also can’t paint the same thing over and over again. Nothing I paint ever looks the way I intended, yet there are only so many times I can have a go at trying to get it right.

Many of my paintings are done using acrylic paints applied to canvas using old credit and sim cards. The use of these items allows me to ‘loosen up’. As you can imagine, we editors can get a little uptight and fussy at times. Painting without being able to control the medium too well is good discipline for me – good discipline in relaxing!

Paisley Petals (four piece)

Paisley Petals four-piece artwork by Jennifer Mosher

Paisley Petals is a four-piece artwork, completed (with brushes) over four eight-inch (20 cm) square canvases of 1.5 inches (3.6 cms) depth. It utilises one hand-drawn, paisley-inspired pattern, rotated and repeated, and four colours. Each colour appears in combination with two other colours only, in adjoining panels, and two diagonally opposing backgrounds or detail colours never appear on the same canvas together. So, for example, Yellow Oxide and Australian Salmon Gum are not used on the same panel together.

Please note that the image above is a digital composite of four individual images and the patterns are the same size on each piece.

Colours used were: Australian Salmon Gum, Dioxazine Purple, Yellow Oxide and Southern Ocean Blue (Phthalo Turquoise).

This four-piece set is available for AUD$295 including shipping anywhere in Australia. (Sorry, no international shipping.)

Love Me Do

Love Me Do - watercolour by Jennifer Mosher

Love Me Do is a watercolour where the watercolour paper was washed with differing bright primary colours first, then hearts drawn over it in black watercolour pencil. Once I had enough hearts covering the page, I filled the gaps with black watercolur pencil, then ‘watered’ it in. This is the result!

The original is on slightly bigger than A4 sized watercolour paper: 32 cm by 24 cm (12.5 inches by 9.5 inches), including a border not visible here.
