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.

What a great start it was for our new gallery, which will soon be preparing for Steven Bramble’s work in Art Week Exeter at the end of May.
In the meantime the gallery gave a briefish home to a few witty drawings by Sabine Jesse-Kniesel, a German artist who was a spirited exhibitor in our past life on May Hill in Gloucestershire, as was Philip Weaver whose pages from a sketchbook mix lively drawings with journalistic descriptions. Not a big exhibition, that will come later, but a very interesting one!
Gordon Hill’s colourful expressions will remain up for a while, until his exploration of trees in various landscapes takes its place.
