Starts this Sunday, hanging the paintings Saturday morning

We’re packing the car up with all the paintings for the exhibition and will be hanging them tomorrow morning at The Horsebridge Gallery, Whitstable. So this is just a quick reminder to come and see me from Sunday, 7th April onwards to April 22nd with ‘drinks’ on Saturday 13th, all welcome.  I’m looking forward to spending some time by the sea. Do come if you fancy a day out in lovely Whitstable.

Long Distance Sale

This painting was bought as a present for this lovely American gentleman, whom I met at a social event in London with his wife. She secretly commissioned the piece and we eventually shipped it across to Colorado. She had it hidden for ages until a special anniversary. He was pleased and surprised and they sent me these photos.

Wrestling with tiny, tiny little flowers

Look fragile but must be robust as they pierce winter and have a beautiful fragrance. There are many ways these can be painted and I still am not happy with my various techniques. Thanks to St Cuthbert’s Mill for little samples of their beautiful papers. Thanks to Andrew Trinder for pausing on his run for the photograph taken this morning over at Cobham.
