This evening I painted a ballerina in watercolours, and I remembered the ones I had painted last year.
Glass spheres, all colours, wrapped within our dirty-nailed fingers, 50p a bag if mum is feeling generous. The chill on hand is biting frost, Arctic, smooth as an infant’s tongue suckling on its mother’s milky breast. We crouch, striking, poised, lured by potential in the weathered, grey, metal drainscapes, bumpy and foot-scuffed. With dirt on our curled fists, we send the marbles hurtling into holes, sliding into victory, these treasured balls taking hits from bravado and not wanting the shame of being the loser, nursing the loose cannon. © 2021 Sarah Drury
I have been writing a lot lately, due to my masters degree, but as it is now the Christmas holidays, I have a little more time to relax, so my paints came out!
Here are some A4 pen and watercolour paintings. I can make prints of these, A4, for £15 each plus p&p. See my shop www.sarahdruryart.com for prints and original art.
