Early Paintings

I thought it might be amusing to show you some paintings I did back when I was a student. These are a series of small oil paintings on canvas (each 285mm X 260mm) that I made around 1980 and are probably the earliest pieces of serious work I still have.Early painting number 1The paintings were not strictly figurative but there was supposed to be a hint of heraldic creatures, or emblems, or maybe ceremonial banners. Early painting number 2I am not sure how I would judge them now, or how I would pick out links to what I do now. My husband Alex says that he sees a connection running through all my work but I find it hard to judge.Early painting number 3I have had these paintings on the walls of my home for over thirty years now and they are old friends that always make me smile and feel inspired.Early painting number 4
