I've been a little quiet over the last couple of weeks due to a nasty coldly bug which managed to find it's way to my chest :( On the road to recovery now and on a happier note I have managed to finish another painting...It's now all mounted and framed ready to hang at the Mother Nature Exhibition that is still showing at the Dugdale Centre in Enfield Town Middlesex. I'm enjoying exhibition life and it's keeping me rather busy, which is keeping my creative juices flowing! I'm working on a few more pieces which I hope to have finished for our next exhibition at Capel Manor college and Gardens. This is going to be part of the Taste of Autumn show at the end of September (last weekend of September).
Then the exhibition is going to run for one more week so it can be viewed by an horticulture conference that is being held on the second Saturday of September...So I best get on with my next painting!
