MNDA Art Pop Up


I am really looking forward to taking part in a pop-up art exhibition in Stamford on 10 October.  Local artists are contributing work for exhibition and sale with a view to raising money for the Motor Neurone Disease Association – a fantastic charity.  Please come!  Here are the three paintings I am contributing.  They were inspired by my walking in mid-May from Stamford along the River Welland towards Easton on the Hill,

Those lazy days of summer…

Summer – where was it?  Fortunately I was able to catch some of the few warm days we experienced in what was a pretty poor summer. Fields that had been yellow with oil seed rape earlier in the year suddenly turned warm yellow in mid July.

A short trip to Chester and two weeks in the Scottsh Highlands provided some great sketching opportunities and I managed to take lots of photos.  Here is a small water colour sketch made next to the beautiful River Feshie.

After a fairly quiet time of it in August I am now back to painting in earnest in preparation for a pop art show in October in support of MNDA.  Watch this space for more details!
