Paintings (below) collected from the framers on Friday afternoon, along with 19 mounted prints and 2 mounted originals, all labelled, wrapped where needed and priced, ready for delivery to  Art Space Gallery, St Ives and St Ives Society of Artists Mariners Gallery. Now mid way through the 2019 St Ives September Festival , on Saturday 21st September St Ives Society of Artists held its annual 'Square Deal' fundraiser offering members of the public an opportunity to buy a piece of original art for £50!

Normal service resumed eventually and here some new and older works. I have also been working on some slightly larger paintings in oil on hardboard, some of which are already at the framers and will provide content for a future post x    'Beach, Good Weather Chases the Rain Away' oil on board, 13.5 x 13.5 cm.
