Droitwich artist Rosie Philpott, known for her wonky pictures of the Spa town and local area, will unveil new paintings at a three-day community market event this month.
You can see Rosie’s original works on her stall at the mini-fest, on 4-6th Sept in Vines Park, which takes place on the weekend that, in usual years, sees the Droitwich Salt Festival.
“Lockdown gave me more time to create paintings I have been wanting to do for a while, including “Wonky Ombersley”, “Elgar’s View” (Worcester Cathedral Plaza and Elgar Statue), and “Lord of the Manor”.
“The last painting depicts a fox surveying the Chateau Impney at dusk. I am particularly happy with It as it allowed me to experiment with light, creating different imagery combined with my familiar style. I am so excited to reveal these to the public”
Rosie began the lockdown by creating ‘Thank You Posters’ and free colouring pages to thank key workers for the public to colour in, gracing doors, windows and even wheelie bins. Since then, she has been extremely busy with commissions. A fourth new painting ‘Wonky Bromsgrove” will be coming out later in the year.
“I usually take part in a number of festivals throughout the year and I have missed the interaction with the public. I intend to make my stall COVID secure so that customers can peruse my work with ease. It will be lovely to see familiar faces and maybe even some new ones!”
