I had a good time at Galatecha this weekend at the Ottawa Museum of Science and Technology where my art was on exhibition. This is the box my installation was in! Did you have a good time?

Sketching and mark making in st ives today, so refreshing to set out time to draw and collect information for paintings. It’s important to ground myself with the landscape by paying close attention to line, texture shape and form around me ☺️

Phew some like it hot!
'Terra habitatur' Show opening.
It was a rainy very sticky Wed night in Darlinghurst for Randal Arvilla's opening night at the ARO Gallery on William Street, however that didn't deter the noisy art crowd.
Gabby Malpas artist and Susannah Smith curator enjoying what else but very cold thirst quenching water! The walls were full of vibrant contemporary abstracts
Lovely show congrats Randal and Susie

This #wip is still very much that... but after having a lot of eyes in my studio this week, all of which responded positively to the stage of this #painting, I thought it was worth documenting before taking it further this weekend. 👽🌲

I’ve been busy preparing for a week-long artists’ residency at @murton_trust with @wovenwillowwork which starts on Monday 22 October! The residency will be an opportunity for the two of us to create new work in this unique environment. 
If you’re in the area please drop by to see us - it’s a stunning location and the tearooms serve amazing cakes!! 🍰 
It will offer visitors the chance to engage with a working studio at Murton's newly completed rural skills centre – with 'meet the maker' sessions and opportunities to drop in and have a go at making. These free sessions will run daily from 12–2pm. Both Rachel and I will also have a selection of work for sale. 
The residency will culminate with 2 workshop sessions at the weekend. Details of these bookable sessions are posted on our Facebook event page - you can find the link to this in my profile. 
Murton Trust is located on the A932, 2.5 miles east of Forfar on the road to Arbroath. Postcode: DD8 2RZ.

I was wondering what the finished piece would look like against something other than my neutral wall. Also taking pics outside because I need to get a new light lol All I had was cardboard for a backdrop but hey it works. 12" x 16" acrylic on canvas. Title coming soon. Series will be available in November! <3

Large mix media studies on 350gsm paper, beginning to understand and evolve my painterly language. Tightening looser brush strokes, spending more attention on overall composition. I NEED to spend more time in the studio everyday to help me with this! Finally getting into the swing of things in my second year of university!

Thanks everybody for coming out tonight,  It was so great to see old friends and be part of such an awesome show.
Special thanks to @onedayforaboutayear @beaudrygallery.
But for me the best part was having these two by my side. @a.kysor and Belle #xo

C. Clinton's paintings are rooted in the magic of light in the landscape, and a desire to make the mystery of intangible forces visible. This is accomplished by incrementally recreating shifting shadow and light-play at distinct moments within the work. C. Clinton’s work is now on view in our main October gallery exhibit “At the Edge”

I’m taking baby steps on this painting, part of my Askew series, 20”x20”, acrylic on panel. Sometimes I think I’m better off working on a painting I’m not happy with, where I can mess around with it because it can only get better!

Five of my Askew series paintings are lined up, ready to pack and take to Royse Contemporary Gallery in Scottsdale for “Reinventing Abstraction” opening next week with a reception on October 11th, 7-10pm. Kinda funny, the photo looks like one large misshapen painting because they’re overlapping each other!

1500 x 120cm, cotton baby muslin/burp cloth, clothes airer, clothes pegs, fresh plant/flower colour extractions: Dahlias, Begonias, Fushias, red hot pokers, black Violets, Geraniums, Phlox, Gladioli, Crocosmia, Sweet peas

Two women living in adjoining counties, who will never meet yet both felt safe in their gardens.
.
When I read that Virginia Woolf’s garden was her safe place I felt a real sense of connection.
.
As I sat on a bench in her garden at Monks House looking around I could see some of the flowers she had listed in the book I was using as my starting point for the exhibition.
There were the Dahlias, and the Red Hot Pokers!!! I got chills!
.
It’s such an addictive feeling when your initial ideas for making new work begin to make sense. I knew I wanted to work with the flowers I’d planted in the Spring to make this work but I had no idea if they’d end up being so relevant to it. That they’d symbolise two women, Virginia and I, both with our creative practices taking reference and sanctuary from our own gardens.
.
It was a wonderfully serendipitous collaboration.
.
I’m really proud of this piece with it’s gentle nod to the Heroic Iconography of The Mother in the form of the beautiful, radiant, warm glow of the adored Mrs Ramsay (a silhouette of Virginias own late Mother) in the novel I worked from (To The Lighthouse).
.
.
The show is all packed up and the work is in my studio but I’m itching to explore and make more now! .
