Open Studios success

Medway Open Studios has been a great success – many thanks to all who have visited my exhibition!

My thanks to all who have visited my studio over the past 6 weeks; 38 groups have signed my Guest Book and many other have visited. A very enjoyable evening was held on July 16th the first of our lovely warm days made the evening a success. Thank you to all who bought paintings, sketches, prints and cards I do hope you will enjoy them.

My next outing is to the Whitstable Seaside Brocante in St Mary’s Hall in Oxford Street;  do come and visit my stall!

APA15 69 view of Oxford from Old Boars Hill 29 11 15I have spent the weekend preparing for Open Studios – most of my hanging now done! You will see mostly new work (last 6 months). There are so many paintings I shall have a lot in boxes still but there for people to see if they would like!

Selling Big Issue outside Somerset House!

Outside Somerset House
This sketch is now framed (thank you John) and will be on display at my Open Studio – starts Friday 3rd.

I got on the train Monday morning straight to Charing Cross; I knew I want to draw the church in the Strand as I had been inside sketching with James Willis.

I thought I was going to St Clements, actually this is St Mary le Strand. It took me two hours, and all the time this man was nearby selling the Big Issue, he clearly enjoyed himself chatting to lots of people. Buses came and went; the White Coach parked on the other side was there most of the time, I was so busy I didn’t see it leave. I loved the jumble of bikes, makes you wonder whose they are, do they cycle in from the station or the suburbs and work nearby?
