This painting is sold framed, in a white frame, size of framed work is 38 x 32.5 cm. Fiona comments “My background is in teaching and, briefly, millinery, but I had always enjoyed drawing and started painting a few years ago.My mother-in-law gave me this beautiful bird and it stood for years in the middle of our garden table where I could see it from the kitchen window. When we moved house I was delighted to find a perfect home for it in a little nook next to the fire place but I could no longer see it all the time so I started sketching and painting it, in order to reconnect with it. I built up the colour in multiple layers of paint, applying the paint quite thinly and then wiped away most of each layer until only a trace of colour remained.”

Fiona Smith selling original art in our art gallery and online. Fiona lives in Oxfordshire with her husband and three children. When not painting, she enjoys her work as a therapist and teaching meditation and spending time with her family and friends. The artist Fiona Smith “My background is in teaching and, briefly, millinery, but I had always enjoyed drawing and started painting a few years ago. A potter friend gave me one of her beautiful bowls and I fell in love with its clean lines and tactile shape and wanted to try and capture its stillness. Symbolically bowls are said to be containers for the soul, whether that’s true or not, I know that I feel very calm and peaceful when I paint them.”
