This amazing piece of work flew from over the pond to live with me last week. I have been in awe of the work of Amy Ruppel for some time and thought it would be rude not to have a small piece for myself. Every time she has held an online sale because of the time difference I have missed out, but she kindly made this one for me personally. They are so much more amazing in the flesh. They are so delicately tactile, I am intrigued about her process. I just have to find somewhere to show it off now. And if you are quick I think she is having another sale today!



Oh, and how I would love to visit her show at Office in Portland, USA at the moment to see this huge one!

And talking of birds, I discovered the work of Cathy Miles recently when visiting a gallery. Her work just has to be seen. She makes these wire bird sculptures but my favourites are the wall mounted pieces with hilarious text and titles. They are fun but perfectly executed. Do go and look at her website.


And finally, before I go for the weekend to paint furiously, here are two that I have finished for Wills Art warehouse. They are two of eight I am delivering to them next Thursday as part of their Deck The Walls exhibition. If you are in London then pop along for the show where all the work is under £500 and you can partake in a mince pie and some mulled wine!

Happy weekend all! x

Hi Jan,

Really love the Amy Ruppel painting of the two birds! and the bird sculptures.

Have you ever seen the drawings of Louise Bourgeois? She is known for her sculpture, her big spider sculpture was at the Tate Modern a while back?.. i find her drawings are fascinating. Many are rather dark though. Her drawing technique may interest you.

My favourite is La femme fiere d'elle meme 1946. I can't find an image of this online but her explanation of the drawing taken from a book I have is

'She has a beautiful fluffy dress and she has heels, high heels. If you have high heels people will love you. If you want people to love you, you have to love yourself first. That's what it means.'

i found this page which gives you an idea of the drawing, and many more of hers..
