Summer? Where’s the sun?

Summer sun at Open Studio 2018

I’ll be opening up my studio to visitors this weekend and next (22/23 June 10 am – 4 pm  and 29/30 June 11 am – 4.30 pm) with Rutland Open Studios   https://www.rutlandopenstudios.co.uk/ and Peterborough Artists Open Studios http://paos.org.uk/  – do come if you can!   Preparing this year has been rather a challenge, due in part to the extremely wet weather but mostly because we have a new puppy at home.  He is adorable but of course rather time consuming!

When I have managed to find a little time this has been to create some small paintings, each measuring 6″ x 8″,  in my little ‘pochade’ paint box.

The first was a small study of some pink geraniums which I was supposed to be planting out in the garden.  I couldn’t resist painting them first 🙂

The second was completed during my stewarding session at the Rutland Open Studios taster exhibition which took place in Oakham between 25 May and 1 June.

I am hoping to do a few more small ones as and when I get the chance.  These two will be available at my open studio unless they are snapped up first from my website where they are currently for sale unframed along with some other little ones for £50 each – https://sarahjenningsartist.com/gallery_707298.html

Do keep in touch either here or through my social media channels.  I would love to hear from you!
