New exhibition coming up

Just back from the very lovely gallery, Art at Goring. Bizarrely it is in the village of Goring (you never would have guessed), between Reading and Oxford (www.artatgoring.co.uk). Starting on 28 March, I will be taking part in a two-artist show, along with the very lovely Sarah Pye (www.sarahsart.co.uk).

We were planning the show today and working out publicity, so am feeling super energised and not a little, overwhelmed by the amount of work. However, I love to have the excuse to paint (instead of doing mummy/wife/domestic duties), so am very happy.

We talked about the animals which might be most popular and the stories they would tell as they hung on the wall, so have decided on British wildlife (hares, otters, fox, red kites) and British domestic (cows, pigs, chickens, cats).  I have a couple in my back pocket, so to speak, but the red kites are going to be a challenge.

I am going on a painting day with MIWAS (Marwell International Wildlife Art Society (www.miwas.co.uk) on Sunday, so that will be an excellent opportunity to ‘get in the zone’.

Thank you, by the way, for all the support for my Henley exhibition in December and January. It seems to have generated lots of interest (and sales), so I really appreciate everyone who came and looked.
