End of another year of Art

Yes, it’s the 31st December, so this will definitely be my last post of 2018! The Dersingham Art Trail went well and I sold a painting – not one of my new works but one that I painted a couple of years ago which, unusually for me, is a still life. Well, I suppose it’s a still life as it does show a bit of action in the kitchen!

Other good things from the Art Trail weekend were an order for several prints of my work, and a commission for a painting of . . . ah well I can’t tell you yet, as it’s a surprise gift. I will show you the finished work when it’s been delivered, but I’ve been working on it in the studio today and it’s coming together now. Another session or two and it will be ready for framing, I hope!

Finally, to artists and art lovers everywhere, a very Happy New Year and may 2019 bring you everything you wish for.

New Works for the Art Trail

As you may have noticed, there haven’t been many new Blog posts lately. That’s because, apart from a bit of teaching, art has had to take a back seat for the past several months due to my involvement with the new Dersingham Village Centre, or village hall. The Centre is open now and I’m sure there will be art exhibitions there at some point in the future, but there’s still a lot of work to do, as with any new building.

However, the end of the year is always Art Trail time, with the Dersingham Art Trail members opening their studios to welcome visitors. This year’s event was last weekend and in the couple of weeks or so before it I managed to squeeze in some time in the studio to make a few new watercolour paintings to show. You can see them here, a couple of scenes from favourite locations in the North of England and one much closer to home, the Norfolk village of Great Massingham. The three paintings shown here are all for sale, so do get in touch if you’re interested. Or just enjoy looking at them!
