Doing more paintings for the exhibition – that is one of the good things about having an exhibition – the deadline … Next week I’m going up to Scotland to do a course at the North-West Highland Art Centre with David Tress – not brilliant timing being so close to Aldeburgh – but something I…

Exhibition …

There’s so much to think about when getting an exhibition together – that is on top of doing the paintings which are of course the priority! Its also important to let as many people as possible know about it – especially since Aldeburgh is not my home territory. Most are now mounted – but I…

Gale force winds

Thursday August 30th

In the morning we drive to Goult and I draw in the local cemetery which has amazing topiaried trees. We go back to the studio and do paintings from the drawings. After lunch I go for a walk in search of the hermit nun I have heard about. Evidently I don’t walk far enough …
