This lovely, A4 sized painting on paper by Rachael Macarthur is entitled Russia.  I visited Arkhangelsk on the White Sea back in 1991 and made the paintings on paper (shown below) at the time.  Its interesting to see where imagery comes from and what sentiments, experiences and feelings prompt it in different artists.Russian3

We took a trip out into the Tundra and less than 90 km from town it felt very lonely until we were told there was nothing going east for over 6000km!  What a huge place it is…


Rachael’s paintings will feature in Painting Too – an exhibition of abstract painting at Harrington Mill Studios from next Saturday.
