In May the exhibition ‘Capture the Castle’ opened in the Southampton City Art Gallery with one of my pieces showing by invitation! An excellent selection of paintings and probably the only time I will be in the same room as Turner! – on until 2nd September and well worth a visit.
Over the last few months I have been concentrating on the garden ready for the Hidden Gardens of Frome. A great way to finally motivate myself to tidy up, plant loads, order an overdue new lawn and spend a lot of time watering! – alongside helping to run the Open Studios, part of the annual Frome Festival. The team had decided to use the WHY (We Hear You) Gallery in Frome to display a selection of work from the Open Studios, so I transformed the walls into a varied yet coherent exhibition which continues til July 16th.
Meanwhile, the Open Studios are in full swing with around 30 venues showing varied and eclectic work from nearly 80 artists.
I have included a few of my castle paintings as well as my latest large landscape.
