MATT JEANES- ART TALK 24

19 January 2024

So, THIS was my first one man show tonight, at Bradley Stoke school for a local ART GROUP, they had booked me a year ago. This was where I talked about myself and my life’s journey in ART for an hour and a half! It looks like there was no one here, but there were around 25-30.. and they were all very enthusiastic and the chair lady said it was one of the best talks they had ever had. Thank you Anne Hayes for suggesting me and to Vicky Hayes for supporting me and being amazing as always. It was quite daunting but I think it went really well

I accidentally dressed to match my publicity!

All a great success, with Vicky and Anne

REMORSE (Remordimiento) by Matthew Haydn Jeanes

5 November 2023

My newest painting, It’s called REMORSE (REMORDIMIENTO), watercolour on A2 paper, 2023.

I was deeply touched and inspired by the story of a Matador who having ‘Piked’ a bull he was about to kill with two swords, caught the eye of the poor animal and REALISED he was about to take a LIFE. He stopped, spared the bull, Walked over to the side of the ring and broke down in tears. He remembered ALL of the lives he had taken before. He never stepped into the bull ring again. I’ve worked long and hard on this for no other reason than I think it’s inspirational,. Hopefully my painting may be too.

GARDEN PARTY by Matthew Haydn Jeanes

4 September 2023

After working solidly through the summer, I eventually managed to get a new painting done, This is my new piece. It’s called GARDEN PARTY by Matthew Haydn Jeanes. I loved the riot of colour (which was also an idea for the title). Watercolour on paper. I liked the idea of trying to achieve such vibrant colour with such a transparent medium and to try and achieve the depth of focus. #watercolor #floralpainter #painting #flowers #artist
