Welcome . . .
. . . to the colourful world of Christine Bowron;
painter, dreamer and servant to cats, Marley and Samson.
I love colour! My clothes are colourful, my (our) house is colourful, inside and out and I (we) have an orange car (called Fifi Maxi l'Orange).
I love the surprise of suddenly seeing a field full of poppies or gorgeously golden rapeseed in bloom, or beautiful cherry blossom trees in spring and the delight of seeing a rainbow is something that I will never lose. Being immersed in colour is what makes me feel happy and I share this in my art because I really love to pass on this passion, in the hope that it helps to make others feel happy too. To paraphrase Maya Angelou:
"Be a rainbow in someone's cloud"
Recently, my work has taken a turn for the explorative, both in subject matter and painting methods. New paintings have been emerging from a desire to create in a much freer and more abstract manner. Of course, they remain as colourful as ever but are much more personally expressive (more about this in my blog page, should you be interested in any stories behind the art).
If you see any of my pieces that you're interested in, that you need in your life, please email me (I can never figure out how to link a payment method to my site, but I do accept PayPal using the above email address). I also accept direct bank transfers and can arrange for credit card payments using my Square card reader. Any transactions will receive an emailed receipt.
I also take commissions. Just contact me with your ideas, as I'd love to create something just for you.
