Where has the time gone? Nearly a month has passed since my last post, although I have been busy. Mostly busy preparing for exhibitions rather than painting if truth be told. However paintings have been selected and framed and now hung. As of 1 May I have paintings in two exhibitions running concurrently at Stamford Arts centre. My own exhibition of 24 paintings hangs in the anteroom and a further 3 paintings are hanging in the main gallery as part of the Welland Valley Arts Society Spring Exhibition. The Spring Exhibition runs until 13 May but my anteroom exhibition runs until 31 May – plently of time to pay a visit. My photos don’t really do the paintings justice. The Arts Centre does a fine line in lunches and cakes. Just saying…….
I have just spent an enjoyable couple of days plein air painting with other artiists from the Welland Valley Arts Society. The weather was fabulous and of course there were plenty of wonderful views in Stamford for us all to paint. Our event also coincided with the annual Stamford music festival, providing additional interest.
These are my three ‘bijou’ works from the event. They and the paintings made by other participating artists are currently on exhibition at Stamford Arts Centre for the next two weeks. Do take a look!
