It’s been a long old time since my last post. Many apologies! I’ve not been idle.
- My award winning painting ‘The Winding Road. Yorkshire Dales’ appeared in the October issue of Leisure Painter magazine, which was exciting!
- On 22 and 23 September I took part in ‘The Great Stamford Brush Off’, a plein air painting event organised by Welland Valley Art Society. The event coincided with Stamford’s Georgian Festival this year and the weather was very kind. Completed paintings were exhibited in the anteroom at Stamford Arts Centre for the following week and I was fortunate to sell two of them. Rather stupidly I forgot to photograph the paintings before they were framed under glass – so you will see reflections from the camera flash in the images below. I was working in mixed media and the paintings were great fun to do. They represent a celebration of a lovely warm Autumn weekend. I hope the new owners enjoy them as much as I enjoyed painting them.
- I am exhibiting 4 paintings in the main gallery at Stamford Arts Centre as part of Welland Valley Art Society’s Autumn Exhibition, which opens today and runs until 14 October. Here are the selected paintings.
Welland Valley Art Society have put on a great exhibition and it’s well worth a visit. There are paintings, prints and sculpture on show – see the Arts Centre website http://www.stamfordartscentre.com
