Hello everyone. Welcome to my blog!

My name is Anne Wrightson. I have always had the urge to do something creative dabbling in lots of different media since I was a child. At the moment I have a passion for painting photo realism, mosaicing and leadlighting. Currently I am painting and mosaicing and I will be posting some of my fine artworks and later mosaics and leadlights so stay tunned!

If you would like to follow my works as they are completed please subscribe (top right) and I will send you an email each time a work is completed.

Some of my works will be for sale and if you would like to make an investment for the future send me an email at awrightson51@gmail.com or ring me on my mobile on 0407956419 (Australia). I will be happy to answer any questions that you have or please feel free to leave a comment about my work.

Thankyou and looking forward to hearing from you

My Kitchen Windows

This is one of two windows that I did for my kitchen. I attended a course in leadlighting about 11 years ago and it is the first of my leadlights that I have to show. I enjoy doing leadlighting but have not had the need to do any of late. Perhaps one day.

Watering Can

This was a experiment that I tried with broken plates on an old galvanised watering can. This was the second watering can the first being in blue and white.

Dad's Train

This is a painting that I did for my father who is a model train enthusiast. He has modelled his railway from a Canadian railway called the Clinchfield. It is acrylic on canvas and has turned out very well including the steam rising from above the train as seen before it enters the tunnel. It sits pride of place in his train room. Naturally he thinks it is the best painting thus far.

Wall Pot

As promised I will start to show some of my mosaics and leadlights. This is a wall pot that I made from left over pieces of glass and mirror from my leadlights.

Boats on Stoney Creek

This is a painting that I did of a couple of boats on Stoney Creek - a nearby creek that comes off Lake Macquarie near Toronto. In the background is the old railway bridge that used to take the trains from Fassifern to Toronto Station when I was growing up. This painting was admired by someone local who bought it at the Dobell Arts Festival held a couple of months ago. Hope they enjoy it!
