As you all know I love getting mail about the contents of the blog and this morning is no exception when a special post arrived. It was an image of a painting (see below) sent to me by Ooh Matron via Disqus (an online global comment system attached to my website).
The painting is Harvesting by Cornish artist Mary Jewels whom we studied back in January this year. In this earlier blog I mentioned that Mary Jewels had been called the 'English Van Gogh' arising from her painting "Cornfields with peasants" which at the time I couldn't locate. The painting which brought about this tag is in fact Harvesting as seen above.
My Disqus contact also owns an original Mary Jewels painting of Mousehole Harbour amongst his/her collection of self taught artists. Hopefully I'll receive an image of the painting in the mail so that I can share it with you. It's days like this I'm so pleased not to be a luddite! No protest from me!!
Other news from the mailbox today is that I must welcome aboard two new subscribers- R of Dandenong and Ch of Mount Waverley. I do hope you enjoy the blog.
Tomorrow I'm intending to look at some artists who are or were protesters.
