It was so uplifting, after the challenging couple of years that we have all experienced, to see the first signs of Spring in the garden. It inspired me to open the garden journal again and do some painting.
As always the hellebores and snowdrops were the first to appear…
And then the crocus…
For the crocus painting I used a photo I had taken the year before with the sun bringing out the shadows on the petals and making that contrast that I love so much.
Just off to help with refreshments at the Wysall Art Fair this afternoon. Should be fun!
It’s been a very long time since I last wrote a blog post here!
You may well have given up on me and I wouldn’t blame you! I guess that many of us have been affected by the strangeness of the last couple of years, but getting back to ‘normal’ seems almost possible now, so here goes…
We are having an exhibition at the art group I joined last year, so if you are in the vicinity of Nottingham, you might like a trip to the lovely village of Wysall.
I am showing some paintings at Wysall Art Fair, which is taking place next Saturday and Sunday, 21st and 22nd May. There will be 10 of my paintings in fact and all at very reasonable prices, and of course there will be lots of work by local artists to see as well.
Here are all the details you need on a poster…and I hope to see you there!
