Artists are a bit touched... well maybe in my case!! Painting in the rain

10450804_10203408979363714_4271773125069471923_n          If you think that the countryside is quiet think again! I have spent the morning outside reading, which is a rare pleasure. I have been so busy painting and organising exhibitions that it was good to just take a breather. The sheep baaing and the Red Kites whistling overheard and the drone of a bumble bee all surprisingly loud but this all seems to quieten down in the midday heat when a lull goes everything except the sounds of human intervention on the landscape. You will often find me including a little figure or some form of mans presence on his surroundings when off painting out doors. I also love capturing movement I feel I have captured this with my new cycling series with a range of paintings from 10cm to well over a metre so a painting for every space or price point. A number are ready framed and I have some ready to frame so you can choose to personalise to your own space. I often get asked how to but art and I think the overriding Conesus it you need to fall in love with the piece. If it gains commercial value that’s a bonus but living with a panting you love will give you years of enjoyment. In the words of a famous advertisement...Priceless! Coming back to being busy in the country I have my last open studio this weekend where I will be exhibiting with 6 other local artists. We will be selling teas and cakes and we have a great raffle with a selection of local work to be won. All money raised goes to the Friends of Stibbington Church helping make the church a centre of our village community. Find us just off the A1 in Stibbington Church. Perfect for a break when traveling down to Cambridge for the Tour de France. www.paos.org.uk
