November 2017

Well what a sell out exhibition that proved to be at All Saints Church, Lathbury, Bucks (another already planned for next year) with a number of new commissions to complete, I shall have to order more greetings cards as well. This Saturday 18th November is the Winter Fayre at Westbury Arts Centre, so my studio will be open (I am spending the day tidying it all tomorrow!!) to visitors. I am launching two new products, one is a print of 'The Fighting Tem O'Hares' (boxing hares by popular demand) and the other will be gift vouchers only available from me and with my special new fox design. Please keep watching the website whilst I get it all in order. Also Fleur Graphic of Portland are designing some beautiful stickers also featuring my fox to go on the front of the covers of the prints. A bit of product and image happening I would say. November is certainly with us, and it's cold this evenng in this beautiful part of Buckinghamshire, most of the leaves on the trees are a golden colour and I must get out with my paints!!

October 2017 - There is a very Autumnal feel to the weather now, the season really has changed since the weekend and the very windy weather has blown half the leaves off the trees, I must get out and paint some landscapes before all the leaves go completely, the colours are so vibrant this year and the fungi is brilliant, hoping to find some fly agaric to draw. Great news that my two pieces of work on the cuckoo sold at the Royal Geographical Society on Sunday as part of the exhibition Explorers Against Extinction, I would love to know who bought them, still its all in a great cause as the cuckoo is on the red endangered list, we think of it as our Spring bird but it only spends 3-4 months here before heading back to Africa.
