Going All Folk Art

I am enjoying taking my folk style forward here in Sidmouth – home of the International Folk Festival!Devx2 2 It is fun to paint in this style – released from the focus of representation and realism.

Zapatismo

The land belongs to the tiller. a-dv3-a-ta-dv11-tAny hand that moves earth drives a perpetual spiritual companion. Through action with nature one has an honest relationship. A to-and-fro that nourishes each. To own above this is a power that leads to a material death.  a-dv2-t
