Wonderful Artists working with muted tones

I always go back to the muted, minimal tones in what I create and what I enjoy - especialy when life is getting a little bit crazy.
Only 6 sleeps now until I fly to the UK and then to Morocco, Portugal and Spain for a great holiday with my 22 year old daughter who is currently living in the UK.
My ankle is healing beautifully thanks to physio, acupuncture, arnica, hot and cold packs, homeopathic drops, and lots of positive thinking.
I was thrilled to get a wonderful surprise in the mail yesterday - some beautiful painting/collages by Leslie Avon Miller - an artist whose work I admire greatly.
'Courage Kindled'
'Collage no 6'
Another artist who creates beautiful, sensitive monotoned collage works is Donna Watson. I am fortunate to own this piece.

'Collage E'
...and I love this tiny 'print' by Janet Jones.
This very evocative print  is by Kevin Oxley. Kevin is a local artist while Leslie, Donna and Janet are from the USA .
Another print I have waiting for a frame is this one I bought in Darwin a few years ago - produced at one of the indigenous desert communities specialising in print making.
I will have them all framed when I return from my trip.


  1. Hi Noela! I think color is what grabs us first, right where it counts. Then all the rest falls into place.

    Wonderful collection you have! Thanks for including me. Have a great trip.


  2. Lovely lot of original works there Noela. Glad you've recovered sufficiently to enjoy your trip. Vaya Con Dios.

  3. All beautiful pieces. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hi Noela, lovely collages with muted subdued colors and I am pleased to be included. thank you.

  5. N- great collection. Good to see the subtle works of LAM, D K and our Indigenous artists. Hope the sleeps are restful and the ankle is healing rapidly for walking and driving. Vibes from Pirlangimpi. Go well. B
