Its been over a month since my last post, tsk, tsk.  Well I've been away and busy with this and that and some.  The Farnham Art Society is currently holding its 68th Annual Exhibition and I am pleased that I had three paintings accepted this year.  Now that I have given my computer a memory transplant I can process photos in real time again which is a great relief.

  1. Saw your three paintings at FAS exhibition today. Very impressive in the actual "flesh". Cello was especially striking with the blue background.
    Kind regards

  2. Thank you so much for the positive feedback, one never really knows what goes down well unless a sale is made so its great to hear from you - you have in fact made my day. I thought the exhibition was pretty good this year but very diverse as usual. I am doing my bit to fly the flag for the people pictures but I think most people prefer landscapes. I will continue to do what I like for now though :).

  4. Glad you are pushing on with figures and yes, people prefer landscapes because they are "safe". But that is not what art is about. There are a lot of figurative artists out there who should step out into the light with their work, it will be appreciated. I have modelled for adult education classes wearing just very large floral ladies hats (supplied by the tutor). A bit unusal but once everyone got over their initial reserve produced some great images. People just need a bit of a push sometimes. Keep up the good work with your blog.

    1. Barry thank you so much for your support. I largely do what I want and dont worry but dipping my toe into the world of exhibiting and galleries gives much food for thought about the commercial world. I dont think I could stop doing figures if I wanted to - too much time and effort invested now so it will always be my major subject but I like to dabble in other areas. I've got an intriguing picture of a your now in your floral hat :).

    1. Jess I did reply to this by email a while ago but just noticed it was a non-reply address. I did a screen dump and if you let me have an email address I'll send it again.
