Seascapes on board - square and tiny...

So many pieces included in this post - 3 or so weeks worth - all small and some that are quite dark, which is inappropriate really as we've been having fantastic summer weather here in St Ives!

I've been lucky to spend three consecutive days painting, punctuated by plenty of breaks in the garden making the most of glorious sunshine, in the midst of nature, enjoying summer smells, cloudless blue skies and birdsong.  It has been hot, hot, hot!

Most of the square paintings are, or soon will be displayed at Art Space Gallery, St Ives 
'Black Rocks Porthmeor' is exhibited at St Ives Society of Artists Mariners Gallery.
All of the tiny boards have yet to be float mounted ready for display in the browsers at St Ives Society.

    1. Diane, thank you. So glad the weather was good for your visit - and it has only just broken today, with rain - we have had a glorious two weeks. x

  2. I love the Porthmeor paintings, the way you have got the sand just right, shiny and wet is really lovely! But they are all great!

Summer, such a hectic, busy time here in St Ives, no complaints though, there's been enough sunshine to keep everyone happy!
On the personal news front: All six of the artworks painted with submission to the annual ING Discerning Eye Exhibition in mind are now at the framer's.  There's still time to enter, click the link to find out more.

The Rotary Club of St Ives popular fundraising exhibition of donated postcard sized art is a high point of the annual St Ives September Festival and my contribution is already in the hands of the organisers.

The ever popular Square Deal Show at St Ives Society of Artists Mariners Gallery is another unmissable September Festival event.  I have my blank canvas, it's unwrapped and a start on it will be made very soon - just need to think about what to paint!

Here's some new work - the following four paintings will appear at Art Space Gallery, St Ives very soon.
