Well, theres a lot going on here!

Since The Silent Landscape exhibition finished I have had 2 days off camping, and then back into the swing of it all! I am currently working on 3 canvases for Suffolk Showcase, an open exhibition starting July 4th at the Bury St. Edmunds Gallery. Then I have 2 more to do for another open exhibition at The Halesworth Gallery in September. Meanwhile I’ve been working on an unusual commission, a clay hare, which is turning out very cute and successful.

Yesterday I had a meeting with Natasha Newton about another exhibition we’re planning for Christmas. I can now reveal some details. It will be entitled, “Enchanted Earth”. It will be held at The Cinema Gallery in Aldeburgh, 17th – 23rd December, with a Special Event on Saturday 19th. (More to be revealed about that later). All the works will be 12×12″ and smaller, making it an affordable art show.

Finally, I am putting together a book of the body of work I produced for recent exhibition, The Silent Landscape. It will be a simple paper back book, affordable, and a wonderful reminder of the show, and a keepsake for those who visited, and for those who weren’t able to come. I will be using and I’ll let you know when its ready to buy. :)))

So thats all the news here at the moment. I will be very busy for the next few weeks, and I will keep you updated as much as possible.

I’ve been feeling really creative just recently. I’m on a mission to get all my xmas presents made.
I love making my presents, and have done for some years now. But the challenge comes in what to make each year!!! Obviously I can only make some things well. In the past its been paintings, drawings, painted pebbles, clay bowls and that kind of thing. This year I’ve a few different things up my sleeve like putting things in box frames, watercolours and clay hares. Today I started my clay hares. The first one has come out quite well. Not finished yet, but he is about 15cm tall, in red clay.

Once I’d got the basic proportions right, he started to take shape.  I found a close relationship in shape to my greyhound actually, and that was helpful because I could look at her for reference!

Of course I still have my main body of work to concentrate on too – my canvas paintings for the exhibition with Natasha Newton next Spring.  I haven’t done much recently so I need to get back to it.  I’ve lots of ideas so I really need to get cracking!!

But I really enjoyed getting my hands dirty with clay today, and doing something a bit different is totally refreshing!!  YAY!
