Next Stop

Next week I have a selection of paintings going to Bloomsbury Art Fair with Artdog London, it is a foundling Art Fair but last year it was a real pleasure to visit as its not too big. Sometimes the vastness of an Art Fair can be so overwhelming because there is too much to take in.

There are some great galleries showing there and hopefully weather permitting it will be a lovely summery event. I have made a couple of little paintings on board.....'Olives Cupboard' and below' Table and Chair'Let the sun shine on us now as I think we all deserve a bit of summer!!!

Pop Up Shop

I am showing a small collection of paintings this weekend in an exciting new venture with Maud and Mabel in Hampstead. There will be some beautiful things there so it is well worth a visit if you are in the area.

A Big Week

On Monday last week I attended 'Varnishing Day' at The Royal Academy, steeped in tradition it was a lovely day. A service for artists takes place a St James church after a parade down Piccadilly headed by the priest and then back to the Academy for a bite to eat and a glass of bubbles. The exciting bit is that you have no idea where your painting will be! In previous years I have been hung in The Small Weston Room and have never experienced being hung in any other part of the gallery so I was really happy to find myself hung in Gallery III which  critics have hailed to be the most successful hanging as it seems very rhythmic giving the work room to breathe as apposed to the traditional hanging normally see in previous years in the Small Weston gallery.
I visited again with friends on Friday evening and had a better chance to look at the exhibition and enjoy the feeling of having my work in that beautiful gallery.
