Now its time to photograph, document, prepare the sides of the all canvases, varnish, apply hanging wire, create info sheets, order postcard prints, and post the invites for the private view. Phew!
Its only 4 weeks to go now too, so there’s still lots of other stuff to do too….

In a couple of weeks I’ll put the whole body of work on here so you can see them all together.
Back soon 🙂

A success story – this is the canvas that has been painted now 4 times! But it was worth the agro because this little beauty was waiting to be realised and the layers underneath the paint is perfect for the texture effect.  I was also pleased to use for the first time some gold mica flakes which has just added that extra loveliness.  So I am very happy and I think I’ll do another one of these paintings at a later date 🙂

So here it is, including a close up photo:

There’s so much to do!!!!

But one step at a time, Natasha and I can confidently get it all done 🙂

Today my new deep, deep edge canvases arrived.  I’m starting with 4 of them –  30x30cm canvases –  and I’m currently sketching and planning the ideas.

Here’s the new canvas delivery:


And here is a sneak preview of my first painting idea – a very rough sketch of autumn birches:

The next stage is to do a proper sketch and decide on a definite palette, textural effects and composition.

Whilst this is all going on, Natasha and I are trying to decide on a theme title for our exhibition.  Thats proving to be quite a challenge!!! 😀

Once we have a date confirmed we’ll both announce it to you via our blogs.  You can find a link to Natasha’s blog in the Blog Roll in the left hand column.

Ok, I’ll be back soon 🙂
