I was asked to donate a painting to an auction in aid of the poor Syrian refugees who must be desperate now with winter coming. I thought figs (a staple in that part of the world) on Syrian tiles would be apt. This will go to auction on November 1st and I will update you with the details and link when I get them. If you’d like to bid via me I will forward it to the person in charge. The reserve is £90.00. Here’s the link for the charity who will receive 50% of the donations along with Medicin Sans Frontiers who will receive the other 50%. https://www.gofundme.com/4nkswcyw?utm_source=internal&utm_medium=email&utm_content=cta_button&utm_campaign=upd_n
It’s harrowing reading, I must warn you. I’ll remind you about it and give you the link on November 1st when it goes live.
Off back to Cumbria where events may mean I need to go off piste for a while so forgive my absence if I do. Here’s the last hydrangea painting for now.
Delighted to say that I’ve been delivering some larger paintings today to the Russell Gallery, Putney for their Christmas Exhibition starting 27th November. Lovely gallery and today the walls were adorned with some rather wonderful Ken Howard, Peter Brown, Richard Pikesley and Jane Corsellis works to name but a few. What a feast for the eyes! So anyway, all that jollity meant no studio time today so here’s one that was slipped into a handbag at my open studio on Sunday. Paid for of course!
Well my open studio day was lovely but I don’t think I’ve ever drunk so much tea and coffee in one day! The sun shone and it was lovely to see new and familiar faces. Here’s one that didn’t make it into a bag!
I can’t ever resist these little beauties but never quite sure how to use them up nice I’ve painted them. I suppose Jobbers and I could dress up in our finery and have them with champers for supper from a silver platter? Maybe not. Any ideas?
I’m having a very impromptu open studio at Chapel Cottage on Sunday from 11-4. If you’re around do pop in and see what I’ve been up to lately. No obligation to buy, just come and have a cuppa and maybe even a piece of cake….quail egg cake of course. Chapel Cottage, NN12 8AG. Suppose I’d better go and clean the kitchen! Other than that, I shall have paintings at Silverstone all this week for SN Arts Trail http://liz-bucklow.wix.com/south-northants-arts
