#LoveArt – Tegwen Morris

#LoveArt / Collections / News and Events - Posted 27-12-2017

Tegwen Morris, National Director of Merched y Wawr takes part in our #LoveArt Campaign. She has chosen ‘Ysbryd Erwau Gleision’ by Elwyn Ioan as her first choice.

This is a colourful and lively picture that appeals to me greatly. It depicts a traditional Welsh kitchen with a strong element of humour. I like traditional furniture, and as a farmer’s daughter from the Ffaldybrenin area of Carmarthenshire I enjoy having fun. The Salem painting, the oak clock, the kitchen, the dresser and the glassware and the wooden chair on the traditional red and black floor (as in our Victorian house kitchen) creates a warm and traditional setting with a fire and two mice. (Though I do not like mice!). There is also a Ghost and because I was born on a Halloween this makes it a very relevant painting.
