Thinking About the Seaside and my Forthcoming Exhibition




Some pages from my sketchbook while I was in Cornwall.
Lovely Cornwall!

Now I'm back home my thoughts turn to the exhibition I have in a week or so. It's a '2 man'
 show and I'm sharing the space with an artist friend that I met many years ago at art college. Her paintings are very different to mine but we've exhibited together before and I feel they compliment eachother very well.
I'll share photos here once they're up on the walls but until then, here are a couple of paintings I'll be showing...

They're both acrylic on canvas.

Dear Jess, good luck with the exhibition in which I don't doubt! :) Your paintings are marvellous, especially the tree in pink and purple!
Thanks for opening the sketchbook for us - the sketches and the collage add more colour to Cornwall- in- my imagination! I like very much the reflections of the "paper" boats...

I adore these paintings; your color choices are always amazing. I think "uplifting" is a perfect word for these.

Good luck for the exhibition. You seemed to have sketched my fantasy house. Where can I get one...
