Right onTrend


This painting is a commission I have just completed. Coincidentally I was surfing this morning and discovered that Pantone's colour of 2019 is 'Living Coral'. Nice to know I was on trend for once!

Here is their colour swatch for living coral and suggested complements

Red Miniature Treasures works in progress

New 6"x6" Miniature Treasure Paintings Work in Progress
by Marion Hedger
Oil on gallery wrapped canvas

My previous series of Miniature Treasures were very popular at the Windsor Contemporary Art Fair last November.

I have another art Fair coming up in Surrey during March and have started on a new series for the fair. I'm using recycled canvases which have been sanded down to remove most of the texture created by the palette knife work. A small amount of texture remains which will add depth to the new painting.

These ones have red as their main colours and others (I shall post later) with orange. They will be framed in white floating frames like the previous ones

Ending 2018 on a high ...


The last day of 2018 ended on a high. The gallery owner of the gallery I recently exhibited in purchased these two paintings for his own collection. In addition, a collector came to view her commission painting before I added the final finish and she loved it. Talk about being on cloud nine over the New Year!

Over the years, I have painted several commissions but this was my first abstract commission and quite nerve wracking as abstracts are more subjective. There was a bit of to and froing at the end to get the finishing touches exactly right but worth it.

Happy New Year to you all. Give yourself a toast and look forward to what you can achieve in 2019.

Here, There and Everywhere

Here, There and Everywhere
Abstract Landscape by Marion Hedger 
Acrylic and mixed media on panel
30x30cm (12x12 inches) framed in a white frame

Recently Sold

This painting was a nod to my impressionist landscapes, although  the medium and process is different. I was pleased to send it to it's new home of another artist, at a recent art fair. It's always pleasing to know one of your paintings has gone to a good home, and especially pleasing if another artist has purchased it.

Here it is in it's new home

Windsor Art Fair - done and dusted


Windsor Contemporary Art Fair is done and dusted and we are back home again. This time we combined the trip to the Windsor Art Fair with a trip up to Nottingham for a family birthday celebration. The trip over was pretty unremarkable with the weather smiling on us all the way. The only bugbear was the crossing at Dartford which took ages with no obvious reason for the delay.

At Windsor, set up was Friday morning at the Racecourse. There is always a sense of excitement and anticipation when entering the building for the first time at an art fair and seeing all the blank stands, knowing that in a few hours beautiful original art will be on display.

Friday was private view time with lots of art lovers viewing the art with a glass of wine in their hands. The atmosphere was buzzing, and I was pleasantly surprised when the purchaser of my Prince's Trust painting introduced herself. This was closely followed by two collectors who were in the queue wanting to buy the Prince's Trust painting but just missed out. They both purchased one of my small mounted paintings. A big thank you to all three.

Saturday was also busy despite there being tremendous storms and I gained some new collectors. It is always satisfying to know that my art will be loved in its' new home.

Unfortunately, Sunday was a damp squid (literally) with no one really interested in purchasing, although I had a couple of nice conversations with people and interest from an interior designer.

All over for now, but already anticipating the Surrey Contemporary Art Fair next March
