MERRY XMAS EVERYONE

Christmas is almost here. A time to celebrate, a season of warmth, light, reunions, families and togetherness; of absent friends, the bitter/sweet memories of those loved but no longer with us; of 'goodwill to all men'.



I like to think of the words in this Jack Russell quote:
"Good things to do in life....Forgive, Love others, Praise, Be thankful, Give, Take opportunities, Show your feelings, Smile, Hug, Move more eat less, Pray, Write letters, Have you time, Travel, Touch nature, Help others in need."  Jack Russell


JOY~ LOVE ~ PEACE

KINDNESS ~ PATIENCE ~ GOODNESS

GENTLENESS ~ SELF-CONTROL ~ FAITHFULNESS

London visit, ING Discerning Eye 2014

The intention was to write this post whilst everything was fresh in my mind and here it is, almost 2 weeks after the annual ING Discerning Eye Exhibition 2014 opened at the Mall Galleries in London....

Exiting Charing Cross station, on the morning of Thursday 13 November, I was thrilled to be amidst the imposing surroundings of Trafalgar Square and Whitehall, walking towards The Mall and awesome Admiralty Arch - see the pics below and also photo credits and links.  Didn't take a camera and don't yet have a smart phone - I know, life in the slow lane, huh.

I reached the Mall Galleries before my friend (fellow artist Claire Coskie) arrived, so decided to have a little wander

and was rewarded with a vista of yet more beautiful architecture and dramatic skyscape at Horse Guards Parade, time to stroll in the sun and also to encounter the low key pomp and cerem…

Discerning Eye 2014

Happy times, one of my paintings has been selected for Discerning Eye 2014 by Emma Stibbon RA....

'All Happening at Porthmeor' and other October paintings

Not so many to show in this post, as a good part of October was spent working holiday cover and then there was HOUSEWORK - impossible to ignore any longer!!!
I managed to cut and prime boards on Sunday and today was spent painting : )

'Wind-Lashed Shore' and other small oil on board paintings

At last, I'm getting some paintings online before taking to Art Space Gallery, St Ives and several are not yet framed. Not complaining though, being busy has been great fun and a big boost to creativity....
Two slightly larger paintings are at the framers in readiness for submission to St Ives Society of Artists Members Autumn Show.....
Some time has also been spent priming fragments of lovely Arches watercolour paper - found under the bed (wish I was joking) - along with some approx A4 sheets of w/c paper, part painted around 6 years or so ago, I think?  The assorted A4 sheets will definitely be re-worked, possibly with watercolour/gouache/acrylic - the paper is just too good to waste!
