I am an artist, living and working in Northern Ireland. I believe that art is indistinguishable from real magic, that art is the true magic of our world. Hence this blog is dedicated to the magic of art and creativity.

"Les Baigneuses" polished and finished!
I exposed the oak panel to ammonia fumes for over a week to darken the wood, then soaked it in linseed oil. Since the panel had been made from several pieces of wood clamped and glued together, there is some variation in tone. However, after a final treatment with a beeswax polish, I was pleased with the result.
