September – last few days of summer

It’s been a busy few weeks. I’ve been varnishing, painting, framing about 25 pieces for my show ‘Two Faces of Optimism’ – lots of work! The exhibition is at the Brewhouse It starts 11th October. Also I just about had the time to attend a great workshop run by the brilliant Deb Alitt at Pitch Blue Creative It was a real treat .. and a great lunch.

I went for a few days to beautiful Alstonefield and made some sketches. I’m working on a piece for my show from the sketches. It’s kind of ‘After Allitt’.
