Cherries and spotty jug

  Hi there.  I’m having a bit of an admin day today as a) I’m just back from Aldeburgh and am sooo tired especially after yesterday’s heat and b) I’ve had my nails done!  It doesn’t happen very often and white spirit and nail polish are not a great combo.  Professional or what? Aldeburgh was […]

Beaujolais Sweetpeas

After a long radio-silence, I thought I’d kick off your weekend by popping into your inbox and saying hello. Blogging has taken a back seat lately as I’ve been busy finishing gallery work (and going on holiday if I’m honest!). Spent a fabulous week in Kefalonia which was the most stunning setting and do you […]

It’s all happening!

Hi everyone, It seems ages since I posted last but such a lot has been happening that I haven’t really had time. I’ve had a holiday to Greece which was stunningly beautiful and a paint out at Flatford Mill with the Brit Plein-air group which was great fun. It was an occassion to meet old […]

Wollerton Old Hall

I’m back in the studio after a lengthy but enjoyable trip to the USA. It was great fun, being ‘Granny’ and the weather was fabulous for the most part. I did end up regretting not taking my paints but……….next time. So here I am trying to get back into the swing and fending off the […]

Lemons

Hi everyone, Just to keep you updated…….I’m still in USA in ‘Granny’ mode and enjoying every minute. I find myself with a bit of time on my hands this morning whilst Freya is at toddler group with Mummy. I met a plein-air painter yesterday evening as Jobbers and I were walking into Bethesda to go […]

France and Pheasant’s eye

Hi all. I’m just back from France where I had a fab time painting with friends. We got up to all sorts of mischief and jollities but mostly painting. Some of us (not I) managed five paintings a day. Can’t keep up with that I’m afraid! The weather wasn’t brilliant and strong winds were trying […]

Primrose

Good afternoon. I’m running around today like an idiot trying to pack for a painting trip to France tomorrow but thought I’d stop to post. I thought you’d like to see my working process so here’s a few snapshots of the stages (scroll down to see). I know a lot of you also paint so […]

Fruit bowl

It’s Friday!! Nearly Easter so I shall be heading north next week for a family visit, taking some friends, walking, scoffing and a bit of painting thrown in if I have my way. I’ve been working on gallery work but last week I had a great workshop with a lovely group over three days! Exhausting […]

Cornishware and lemons

Ooooh, I have been enjoying this weather but it sends me into a panic with everything I want to paint coming on thick and fast. I’ll show you what I’ve been doing below but firstly, here’s a little one to take you into the weekend. I’m in summer mode I think. Click here to purchase […]

Garlic

Well, I’ve just about recovered from Surrey Art Fair which was great fun with good sales but boy…….exhausting! Loved being in a little ‘enclave’ with painting pals. We did a lot of giggling and sharing of all things chocolate and were able to watch each others’ stands when the obligatory wee was required. I stayed […]
