Size A1. Card on Card. NFS (at the moment)
This is the latest of the cut-outs and I like this one the best. It is really bright and bold and already I’ve started on number 4. I think the bigger shapes work better than the smaller ones and makes it look more dramatic. What do you think?

This is the latest cut-out inspired by the Matisse exhibition. It is still based on our garden and I plan to do two more. I have just started the third. It is slow and sticky, but I love doing these. It is a large size and takes a lot of time but it is different from working with paint and it is good to try something new. Let me know what you think.
This is my latest art work. I have done this Cut-Out after going to see the Matisse Cut-Out exhibition at the Tate Modern in London. I loved the exhibition and I wanted to try to make a picture, too. I went out with mum to buy lots of different coloured papers and large card. This is the first of four pictures that I’m going to do.
It was quite difficult to do because it was very fiddly and sticky, but I really enjoyed doing it. I’m going back to see the Matisse again with my dad. At the moment I’m not thinking about selling the picture, because I want to do all four first. It is size A1.
This is me today trying to finish my cut-out based on mum’s garden. It’s taken much longer than I thought it would. I’ve got three more to do and they are all large. I’ve really loved trying something different. Making all the different shapes is very fiddly, next time I’m going to try bigger shapes and see what happens. It takes a bit of getting used to and next time I will make it a bit more simple. But I’m learning!!
I’ve finished a new painting taken from one of Kingsley Scott’s photos. It is of a beautiful sunset at West Pentire in Cornwall. I love his photos. I really enjoyed trying to work out a way to do the sunset. It was very difficult but I like the result. I went to see some painters at the National Gallery whilst I was in London and liked one called Seurat very much, and he painted in little dots of colour, so I’ve tried to do that for the sunset.

I have just set up a Twitter account. why not follow me on Twitter. I’ll try and post every day and let you know how I’m getting on with my new painting. My Twitter name is @taziafawley
Mum and me are just back from the Heart and Sold ‘Reveal’ exhibition which finished on Saturday. It was a lovely exhibition and I was lucky enough to have three paintings on show. There were about a dozen artists there, with photos and paintings. Also they had lots of our prints on sale. I think it must have been a great success. As well as going to the Gallery we met up with lots of friends and my brother and his wife. We went on the London Eye and it was amazing and I visited the Tate Modern twice and also the National Gallery to look at the Impressionists. I would like to go back there soon.
