Paintings in the time of Covid
I cannot believe how fast this year has gone - September and Spring already!
You will agree (I am sure), that this has been a year like no other, and stress has been at a premium - for different reasons, whether it is because of lack of freedom, lack of income, concern about becoming unwell.
I have been very busy with commissions and have completed four so far.
The biggest one was 2 x 2 metres, and went wailing off on the bak of a truck to Te Awamutu on Thursday last week. The painting was of a group of workers in Europe 'After the Harvest' sitting at a table enjoying wine and food.
Other commissioned paintings included a French Market and musical sequences.
I have just finished those commissions and am starting to think about an exhibition that I am holding on November 28th and 29th at my home, 19 Queen Street, Cambridge. It is in association with Jo Beckett, the Cambridge potter who does wonderful garden art and lives around the corner in Alpha Street.
The exhibition is called 'Just The Two Of Us', and we really look forward to seeing people over the weekend and talking art. I will have a painting displayed that will be part of a draw for all those who come to the exhibition and Jo will have a piece of pottery available to be won. Everyone who visits us will get their name put into a draw to win the items, and each draw will be selected a the end of the two days.
I have also had new table mats and cheese boards that have just arrived. If you would like more information on them, or would like to order or buy some for yourself or for Christmas Presents, just text or message me, contact details are at Contact.
So, now I'm off to start painting again for the exhibition, and to finish the other commissions.
