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 friends and make new ones and I made paintings of the iconic Willy Lot’s cottage as well as a door (yep, really!) and some cows (yep…….I have some in the field behind my back garden but went all the way to Flatford to paint some??).
I’ve been doing a few oil sketches lately to take with me to the next couple of events I’ll be in including……..
this coming weekend, Childwickbury Art Fair. http://childwickburyarts.com/. Always a great weekend with plenty of great art, wonderful food, music and happy people so 5-7th I’ll be there demonstrating and would love to catch up if you’re around.
After that, I’ll be exhibiting at the Aldeburgh Gallery with my old pal and talented artist Lesley Dabson from 18th-24th July. We’d love to see you if you’re in the area. Leave your bucket and spade on the beach and pop up and see us.
After that, I’m going to have a little downtime. I say that but of course I’ll be painting as at this time of year, nature’s bounty makes me a little restless.
Catch you next time. Enjoy the weather – here’s a taste of what’s in my garden at the moment, and plenty of them!
