Every now and then I have a bonfire, and due to carelessness some bits of what I’m burning, scorch, but escape. One day when gathering these bits together I decided to use them. It has taken me a long time to find the way to do this, I’ve tried all sorts of backgrounds for the figure, collage, woodstain & finally decided on this acrylic painted background. For some reason the fence pulled it together. The actual figure is pasted on.
2.PERSON AND BIRD.
This one is all woodstain, pine, mahogany, walnut, ebony etc. except for the white which is acrylic. Several layers of finishing oil, and quite a bit of sanding when I made a mistake.
This is a recently-commissioned 4′ x 2′ oak table with tiles by Veronica Gosling and table by Clive Hurman. We are open to further tiled table commissions, contact us if you are interested.

Studio 36 was open each day during Art Week Exeter. We had many visitors and interesting conversations, including those during our Freedom from Expectation event on the evening of Thursday 24th.
Conversations in Colour, an exhibition showcasing work by the Budding Friends Age UK group that meets at Studio 36 was officially opened by the Deputy Lord Mayor, Kate Hannan, on 4th May. Many guests and artists involved in the project were present. The exhibition at the Front of House Gallery of the Barnfield Theatre ran until 31st May.
The snow did not deter the many who came to the opening of our new gallery on March 18th. We had a full house to enjoy the poetry of James Turner, the music of Ric White, tea, cake, conversation and not least the artwork of Gareth Williams and Gordon Hill.
