Nearly there!

Lost Horizon, mixed media

Five days to go and the show is getting on the road — paintings are delivered to their various exhibitions and cannot be tweaked or tinkered with any more !

You will be able see some of my work in the Open Studios flagship exhibition at The Base, Greenham Common Business Park, Newbury – open daily from this Saturday and throughout May, 11-5pm.

My studio space is a shared one with Rock Paper Scissors at 26 The Croft, Hungerford. This year the collective features the sculptor Janet Ford, and painter and printer, Shirley Cartey. The studio will be open every weekend, including bank holidays, 11-5pm. Entry is free and there is no obligation to buy, but we would love you to come along and have a browse.

Hanging on a different wall


So pleased to say this little painting has sold – it was one of several produced when I was at a painting workshop in Sidmouth during the summer. The memory of it is filled with sun baked days, screaming seagulls (who can steal a sandwich at lightening speed!) and meeting new artists. We were working with acrylic paints and inks, using 4” brushes and old credit cards!

The painting was sold during the regular Newbury Art Group exhibition in West Berks Community Hospital, with a percentage of the sale going to the Friends of the hospital. The exhibition changes every six weeks and there is always something worth seeing there.

Hanging on another wall…

Yellow Iris, acrylics

On this dismally grey August day I am missing the brightness of this painting. It was sold at the HADCAF art exhibition and now hangs on someone else’s wall. Better unpack the acrylic inks and get cracking!
