I’m so pleased to have sold a picture at Hungerford Summer Festival’s art exhibition. If you haven’t visited yet, there’s still time as the exhibition is open daily, 10am to 5.30pm, closing this Sunday. It comprises an eclectic collection of work by artists local to Hungerford, ranging from things to hang on your wall to something to wear to a ball!
This painting was inspired by a visit to Monet’s house at Giverny. The house was typically (for an old French house) quite dark inside, but through every window you could see the amazing garden that came right up to the house – a riot of colour that seeped through into the rooms.
This is the second painting on this theme; the first, Monet’s Window No 1, can be seen in my still life Gallery.
Vibrant and warm, tulips from another season when you didn’t need a light on by lunchtime!
This is a new card in the rack, and would usually be on sale at Hungerford Hub & Library. Unfortunately, the current COVID lockdown means there is restricted access to the library right now (click and collect only) but you can always buy my cards here.
Lovely to be showing with other artists in TheCurve@Hungerford Hub & Library. Sponsored by Hungerford Summer Festival, the exhibition is open 10am to 4pm every weekend throughout the festival, closing on 14th July.
I’m also selling cards and a few of my drawings, mounted and ready to frame. Hope to see you there!
Very pleased to be exhibiting some of my work this weekend at the Old Bluecoat School Art Experience Exhibition in Thatcham. The exhibition is one of many events taking place during Thatcham’s Arts Festival running until 19th October and will be open this weekend, Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th, 10am-4pm.
This is one of five pieces I have put into the exhibition. It’s a mixed media painting entitled ‘Clear Vase’ painted in the spring when there was colour and light in abundance.
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!
Getting ready for an exhibition this weekend in East Shefford. I have three pieces in this showcase of local artists being held at St Thomas’s Church, Saturday 15 July, 10-6pm. There is also an Open Garden and concert in the evening – proceeds to the church fund.
This painting originated as a ‘blind’ drawing of pots and brushes set out ready for me to start work. It is also by nature a one line drawing. It was produced at a one-day workshop held by Annie Monk (at The White Horse Book Shop, Marlborough) on using acrylics to produce the abstract image. This simple line construction was our starting point – some people then turned their drawing through 90 degrees to put another set of working lines over the first. My natural inclination was to maintain a connection to reality which is why my piece still offers the viewer a strong visual reference.
