Lilac Wisteria (2013-4), R. Herman

DSC_0520

Hello friends.

For those of you that are interested, here is my latest piece of art: a commission entitled, ‘Lilac Wisteria.’ My client intends to hang this artwork in their kitchen; a light and airy space, perfect for this large, statement piece.

My next project is a portrait. I am tremendously excited to start this, as portraits are indeed my fave, so watch this space…!

Rachael.

P.S. Apologies for the low-budget photograph; I have not yet had the chance to take one in the bright spring sunlight due to painting it over the dark winter months

Hanging Basket #1 (11/07/2012), R.Herman

Hanging Basket  #1, 11/07/2012

Having returned home from work today nothing short of a bruised and battered war hero – yes, it is that glorious time of year when schools decide to send their pupils out to fun places, masquerading it as ‘curriculum enhancement’. Apparently I put my name down for paintballing?! Owie… – I thought what better way to ‘debrief’ than to soak up the tepid rays of the evening sun in the serene green of the garden. Paintball gun left firmly behind, I instead armed myself with preferred weapon of choice, the ol’ Nikon d90. (Results shown above^).

Rhododendron in White (12/05/2012), Sheringham Park

Here’s a pretty picture of a flower to brighten an otherwise dull day :).

Sheringham Park, Norfolk (12/05/2012)

Nostalgic views of the North Sea, sun-soaked Rhododendrons, mysterious monuments, and Bluebell-dappled woodland: all hallmarks of a splendid afternoon spent at what some would debate to be Norfolk’s finest picnic destination, Sheringham Park.

The First (and apparently last) Day of Spring, Norfolk (30/04/2012)

Yesterday, here in fair England, we experienced what is more commonly known to the rest of the world as ‘good weather’. Naturally, I seized upon this happy rarity and hopped on board my bike; full of wretched determination to soak up every last ray of long overdue sunshine with my trusty d90. I was particularly keen on snapping that luminous yellow favourite, Oilseed Rape, as you can see from the images below. Oh, how it glows in that marvelous late-afternoon light!

Needless to say, the weather has of course reverted back to its usual dreary, watery self after this one glorious day of relief. Sigh.

Grungier flowers (23/04/2012)

As before, but in black and white. Because I can 😉

Grungy flowers (22/04/12)

Some rather grubby-looking photographs, taken in that strange pre-storm light, of various flowers dotted around my house. Featured is that springtime favourite, the tulip (looking slightly sorry for itself), and the plant that sits in my room of which name escapes me (to be honest, I don’t think I ever knew its name).
