Paintathon of east coast of England

Here are some see side pictures of memories of the east coast. Once again I was up all night, feeling inspired after a weekend away on the coast. It started with Dr Innes looking in my ear with a big microscope to find there was nothing wrong with it, and continued with lots of dog minding and Easter Egg Hunting.

Seagull looking back at how far it has flown across the sea

Seagull looking back at how far it has flown across the sea
The Seagull painting is a favourite by everyone on line and in the flesh. It is valued at £101,048,567.56 the sale of this work would go towards buying rain forest and putting a 100,000 year preservation order on it not to be logged.



Swimmers in the Sea

Swimmers in the Sea
This painting I gave to Taffeta and Jay my cousins who own the Pheasant pub in Keyston in Huntingdon. The Pub is the best English pub in the UK and has food made by Jay Scrimshaw who is well known award winning, being the top British chef,  in the UK. Taffeta manages the pub with Supreme glory and fixes a drink to quench the thirst of her loyal amazing lovely costumers.



Shaky wet dog

Shaky wet dog
Shaky wet dog painting is my favourite as I have many memory's of being soaked by my family labrador dog called Suzie who loved to take a dip in any river, sea and lake. When she had puppy's she taught them all to swim in the sea, there little cute faces said you don't want me to go in there do you as the big waves lapped up onto the shore.

This little painting has been valued at £163,151,733.31 This painting would go towards a series of eco holiday villages, made up of hobbit, like cob houses. The villages would run eco courses in how to live sustainably without harming the environment.


Abandoned pink bucket

Abandoned pink bucket
A plastic bucket that is left on beach and ends up floating around in the ocean for eternity.

An awful lot of plastics end up floating around in the ocean. The only way to prevent this from happening in the future of the planet is stop making plastic. In order to stop making plastic we need to create a plastic that breaks down once to discarded. Another alternative is to make containers out of clay like they use to do in India. I love clay pots and making things out of clay is a real treat.
When I was in Sydney we hired Bill Brownhill to make a kiln out of paper, we used the front pages of magazines that have a clay content and dipped them in slip and kept the kiln going all night like a volcano. In the morning we went through the ashes to find adorable pots. I made a puppet and had trouble finding all the bits, wish I had made a big pot now.
Kilns can be made in our own back yard and clay can be found all over the place. The great thing about the pots is throwing them away after they break is they break down and they can be also used as a mosaic. Like the one I helped make in Sydney outside Alfalfa house food coop there was a pottery next door that donated there broken bits.
To get rid of the plastics industry would mean building new kilns and buying buildings to put them and employing lots of people to work there and training them all up to throw a pot on a wheel. £9000,000,000.00

I love you

I love you
This painting was done to remind myself of how much fun we can have writing out names in the sand and drawing pictures in it. I sold this painting at art on the railings in Norwich to a lovely lady that adored my work.


Little white fluffy seal

Little white fluffy seal
Little fluffy seals get sick when there is tons of waste spilled into the ocean from factory's and toilets. Some seals get cared for when found half dead by Green peace.

To solve the problem of water going out to sea. Would be putting reed bed systems at all farms. Putting compost toilets in all houses. To stop using chemicals in the home and work that wash down the drain. To start using herbal cures instead of anti-biotics for the common cold and many other things. To close down all chemical factory's and build organic alternative factory's and to use a reed bed system at them. If everyone tasted the water at the beach or any river they would never swim again.
This industry would need a lot of cash to change. So a large amount of cash is need to kick start this industry on a global scale I estimate this painting to be worth £7,000,000,000,000,000,000 the return on your investment would be a planet with life on it.


Killer Whales and Poppy Fields

Killer Whales and Poppy Fields
This painting be hung on its side or straight up. The painting sale would go to reeducating the entire British nation. 25 percent cannot read or write. I went to school in Canterbury for a few months in the very early eighty's and the education system was about trying to restore order in the class by beating the kids with a cane or stick. So it is no wonder the country has 25 percent that cannot read or write. I would introduce a new education system that would teach everyone to have there own enterprise and be totally skilled up to perfection with what ever they choose to do. When I was very little girl I was already an artist and drew and made things constantly unfortunately there was no school around that could cater for artists. So I had to do the same education as everyone else and my talents where not nurtured and I resented being at a school, where I didn't understand anything that they did there.

It is no wonder that Britain is obsessed with the army and wars when the children are taught to be violent at school. This painting would sale for £937, 793, 567, 291.00 which would pay for the reeducation of teachers, adults and children.

Running free into the sea

Running free into the sea
This painting is about freedom. Does it exist today?  When my friend took off her clothes off to run into the sea she was fined for being topless. We are not born with clothes on and we hate wearing them they become a burden and cause problems in the workplace and in the home. With Nagging parents saying you cannot wear this or that. Pressure from colleagues, bosses, government telling us that what we wear is wrong and forcing us to always wear something else.
My first job in the UK on Cromer pier cafe, when I was 15 years old my boss told me to wear a mini skirt to work. I felt pressured and went out and bought one.
I had my own gardening business from the age of twelve and I sometimes got a friend to help. I never said she should wear overalls. It had never even crossed my mind. When I worked in a cafe in Sydney sometimes I turned up to work in costume from a show I was in the night before and had not time to change out of it. Sometimes I never wore shoes because they got ruined in the kitchen.
When I was in Saudi Arabia after driving across the dessert to the red sea all I wanted to do was put my feet in the sea to cool down. My Mum and I had to run like billio and was hidden in basement after we put our feet in the water, we got rocks thrown at us by hundreds of people. Apparently women were not allowed to go in the sea.
In Sydney running up to the Olympics when low cut jeans were in fashion. John Howard brought in a law against builders bums. Has he ever bent over to lift up 100 bricks without his crack showing.
There is many examples of our freedom being cramped by clothes and our body's made out to be an embarrassment.
The funds from the sale of this painting would go towards natural fibre and dyes industry, cotton, hemp, Bamboo and vegetable dyes.
The sale of his work would be £3000,000,000
More memories are on the way!
