Marvelous conception of an olden day Garden with the figure of the young lady, dressed in her crinoline attire. Lovely architecture of the cottage with dorma window, and railing for the trellace, with spreading Ivy or climbers. The green makes the picture so moist and alive, against the contrasting mid browns of the thatched roof and chimney stack.The young girl, looks over her shoulder and reflects the beauty of the garden , with tiny white petals scattered in places, giving it a diminuative structure. Really excellent colours and perspectiveness! This painting holds a story and one can smell the sweet scent of Cherry Blossom, a real picture of historic Beauty and Pastime. Well done, Colin! I tried to paint an Acrylic with olden day costumes, suppose to be an illustration from the story I am writing about Ennerdale,am moving slowly with it, as it requires delicate action. I really admire these kind of paintings. Hope you are alot better, and look foreward to viewing some new work in the New Year. May we wish you a Merry Xmas, cosy and warm, and better Health into the New Year.......Imaginative Abstracts can be a blessing to express, and the Subconscious Paintings ,really I find excellent, just choosing three colours, then applying it on canvas or paper, just letting the brush do the work. Leave it to dry out, then apply another coat of paint, scroll or use a palette knife to scratch out something.(At the time you may not know what is being expressed) it is a an image, of some kind, and a surprise when it appears on the canvas! Leave it again to model, then apply another coat. Three stages, and then sometimes images appear on the canvas, almost ready for some emulating. It is so therapeutic and restful. I tried out this technique a few years ago when in agony with joint pain, and it remarkably eased the pain, lifted the attention out of the body into another realm, and provides healing at the same time. Strangely enough I have been alot better this year, with specia

Thanks Angela. Yes there is an artist called Sophie Shapiro. She once painted 'automatic' healing paintings for me.

Unfortunatley, I now have Pneumonia and pleurisy.

I am sorry to hear about the Pleurisy and Pneumonia, Colin. I shall pray for you and from Meditation paint a healing picture for you. All these things do come to pass, with the aide of Antibiotics , nourishment, and rest.Just take care,and take plenty of Vitamins and Green Vegetables. There is alot of healing elements in Consomme Soups, fruit jellies, and the Wholemeal bread, with homus.Meditate on the colours Green, Purple, and Yellow. These colours help to restore balance in the body. Take care now, and wish you a speedy recovery. Regards Angela Susan

I'm battling against impossible odds, as I have insulin resistance. This means I can't use anything to get my runaway blood sugars normal. This destroys the immune system, and leaves me totally susceptible, to the respiratory nasties, out there.

Five times, I've had this since January.

Thanks for the best wishes, Angela. I appreciate that.

The ancient remedy to help fight colds and infections is Garlic with honey, from the Natural healing clinic to promote health and wellbeing. The natural sugar content in honey has amazing properties and once, a long time ago, it worked well for us. I am fascinated with how these herbs and minerals work, as they can and do heal! Honey and Garlic can heal and reduce the level of sugars from straying about, All the best with creating some phagocytes, Natural healing does work.Also Cinnamon is good too, taken in hot water, and ginger from the root, instead of other beverages, eliminate milk during a healing process, for a few days. Hope you recover well. Shall be thinking about Garlic and Meditate on its healing properties for you, then hopefully paint a Healing Picture. Take Care Now, Angela Susan

Artist Statement
for Colin Cartwright
Colin CartwrightI started painting 7 years ago as I could not work, due to health deterioration.
The only thing to save my sanity was to produce paintings. Landscapes, seascapes, buildings and always with lots of varying light.

It's great getting feedback from others.

Originals are available to buy or prints.
