There are only a few days to go before the Seascape Gallery Winter Abstract Exhibition opens. Click here to go to the page displaying thumbnails of the works of the 5 artists showcased - Daisy Cook, Christine Allen, Nigel Forbes Moores, Robert Dunt and Yours Truly - and here to go to my page on the Seascape Gallery web.

The same works are listed on my free page on Saatchi online and I've entered the above painting (click to enlarge) 'From Land & Sea 2009' for this week's Showdown which continues until 18/01/2010. Please click the Showdown link to vote for my work (grovel) thanks in advance! Bye for now and best wishes, Lesley x


  1. It looks like a terrific exhibition Lesley.

  2. What a lovely injection of colour on a snowy night (again!). Off to vote for you..... Wishing you great success with the exhibition.

  3. Jill & Cathy, thanks - your comments are much appreciated as always!

    The snow has disappeared from here today, it's bitterly cold and very, very wet.

  4. Just enjoyed a browse at your work in the seascape gallery. Best wishes with the exhibition. The absracts are clean, fresh and not overworked and I like them. Tomorrow I will look at the other artists.

  5. Perused both sites, Lesley, and I think you are in some good company with the other artists. Let us know how it goes
