Standard Bearer No 2 by Christine Lafon

This oil painting is Standard Bearer No 2 by Christine Lafon will be on show at MMContemporArt's sale in Grantchester on 4 - 5 the November  "I don’t know who this African beauty is but her proud stance reminds me of the standard or flag-bearers who march at the head of their own country’s athletes in the opening ceremony of the Olympic games - although perhaps not wearing outsize earrings!  Or do they?  This was only my 2nd attempt at a portrait in oils, so I based it on a water-colour portrait I had painted some time before, but confined myself to simpler black and white.  I was quite pleased with the result and in fact prefer it to the water-colour version." For more of her work visit her website www.christinelafonart.co.uk or follow her on facebook.

La Poterie by Christine Lafon

This colourful abstract by Christine Lafon is called "La Poterie - Sunrise" 
"The huge variety of shapes of pots and bowls is often an inspiration, and I produced this during a session at Stapleford Granery.  Since  then ink has become a staple in my pallet; I love the way it has a mind of its own and reacts, sometimes explosively, to other media, especially on a wet surface." For more of her work, visit her website www.christinelafonart.co.uk or her facebook page.
It will be available for purchase at our show in Grantchester Village Hall on 4-5th November.

Apple Splash by Christine Lafon
