Settling in to Studio Life.

I have been back at my studio for nearly a month now and it has been absolutely hectic…in a good way!

The beginning of the month started with Roys’s Art Fair at The Truman Brewery.  A wonderful experience.   My first London Art Fair was a steep learning curve, but the great organisation and fellow exhibitiors made it very worthwhile.

Following on from Roy’s, I dropped paintings off at Barge Fiodra for the Artists Afloat exhibition.  Featuring work from established artists who find inspiration on the waterways of the UK, many who are members of the Guild of Waterway Artists.   On until the 27th October.

Introduction to Creative Acrylics Workshop

The first “Introduction to Creative Acrylics” workshop in my new space was a great success.  I loved the small group and being able to talk to everyone…I think this is the way to go  for the future.  Small, friendly groups, fit perfectly in the new “Teaching Room”

Looking forward to a tidy, bright and organised Art Boat

I’m still in the process of getting all my art making stuff from the boat the studio.  Over the past few years The Art Boat has got beyond managable with all my paints canvases and trading equipment.  The plan is to empty the boat completely of all art paraphernalia, reorganise and decorate, then start taking some of the art stuff back ready for festivals and markets next year.  I am quite excited…I have been planning to paint the inside of my boat for the last 9 years.  Other things need doing first, but I can now actually see that it will happen over the winter.  Watch this space…but not too closely!

The Prize Draw,

The prize draw that I ran to celebrate taking part in Roy’s has a winner.  The first print in a ltd. edition of 25 will be on it’s way to a new home in Norwich early next week.

I have not yet managed to get this print on my website, but if you are interested in purchasing one of these very special hand embellished ltd edition prints, Contact me for details

Coming up in November

During November and December you can find me at Audlem Mill with fellow Guild of Waterway Artists member Christine Rigden.

Bye for now…
