I spent the weekend working in the courtyard of Hylands House in Chelmsford where my Essex Artists Studio is based creating a brilliant artwork from tissue paper applied to the canvas.

Although it was hot working in the sunshine I really enjoyed chatting to the dozens of interested public who took the time to find out what I was doing :)

Both myself MJo-art and six other resident artists at the Essex Artist Studios at Hylands Park in Chelmsford displayed all maker of original artworks in the diverse range of media that our small group is becoming increasingly well know for throughout the Essex region.

Here I am with one of my New Abstract Paintings
Entwined in the Forest 2…. oil and mixed media on canvas 50 x 40 inches

This Abstract Painting feels like all the Magic of the world has been squeezed into one place the bright colours contrast an vibrate with energy and excitement and even the rich textures add a quality to the atmosphere as though stepping through a door into warm buzzing electricity of a Nightclub  

Like the other paintings in this series it pursues the idea that people and the environment have become enmeshed as a singular form where neither one or the other are distinguishable in there own right and yet are bound together.

How dose this abstract painting make you feel ?

I live with dyslexia and M.E. which has to some extent moulded some of my life choices; however I have learnt that I am the master of my own fate giving me the power to overcome any difficulties that present themselves. Today I work as an artist (painter) and created my own website Mjo-art and maintain a blog,  colours of intent as well as being involved in a number of exciting business enterprises including web design, property, marketing, consultancy and promotions.

As an artist, painting is like putting together the Notes in music, the rifts, cords and melodies combine in colour, texture and shapes that create the harmonies, energy and balance that bring a painting to life. This is especially true in appreciating modern and abstract artwork which is in essence the raw power of emotion and ideas that spring from the human state, filling our world with images and excitement.

My recent involvement in a domestic cleaning business in Chelmsford, Essex as the marketing director has offered me the chance to develop and hone my skills in web design allowing me the chance to maintain D.K.M. domestic services on the first page of Google for a number of search terms without the need to spend a single penny to achieve this, which I have found most gratifying to say the least.  I am without a doubt delighted that  has proved to be so successful in meeting and surpassing all our initial targets, making our business turning a profit in only four months of trading.

D.K.M. is about improving the lives of others and the way that we help ordinary people get a better lifestyle, save money and time is by understanding that business is all about Trust! Making money is a result of our actions not the goal which means we create a win win situation for all.

Thinking in Positive ways, is a life changing experience that improvers every aspect of my business life, art and painting particularly has demonstrated to me that reward's for the individual and those around you, far outstrip the effort of personal investment.
