And here is! I absolutely loved painting it. The river and the rocks really do compliment the scene. The family were so happy with it and it’s really lovely that they now have it on display in their family home. #Plot131
With a four month delay in the next coming posts, I can only apologise for my lack of up to date blogging. I’ll go into why later, but there is so much to write let’s get on! So way back in August, I was hard at work completing the The Great British Caravan series. My tribute to the time I’d spent caravanning in Cumbria. I had completed the series and was excited to be given the opportunity to exhibit in Penrith. I spent a great deal of time curating the layout of the series. Steering the caravan viewpoints towards the central eye line and positioning the sizes symmetrically. I think the photograph of me arranging the paintings is just fantastic- The Great British Caravan, in my humble yet great caravan. It was a novel feeling leaving my works with the café to install, but a really brilliant feeling to walk in the following week and see them displayed for all to see. I felt extremely proud of the work I’d produced. The red walls looked fantastic and although they didn’t all sell, I loved the experience and it was amazing to have a cup of tea, see my work on the walls and watch from a distance people admiring them.
The exhibition ran from 2nd August- 12th September 2016
