Went to see the Albert Irvin Exhibition at the RWA Gallery. The artwork was stupendous and I met Chiquita and her friend there. We all agreed the work was life affirming and we would like to pop the work under our arms and take it home(possibly a bit difficult). There were a considerable amount of paintings and all of them wonderful. I came home and dashed into the studio to have a good paint. What a great day.
Working on a piece, which is now finished and on the Gallery. I love all the red and I feel the bright flowers are a good sharp contrast. I have mainly used palette knives with only a little brush work. I am on Instagram and this work is posted there.
Some New Pieces of work in the Window of Aubergine Art. It is a lovely Gallery in Wimbledon, London and the staff are all lovely, very helpful to customers and delightful to their Artists. I have been hard at work in the studio and am now on Instagram - pennymrees. All very exciting.
I have been really enjoying myself with sheds, near the sea, in the countryside, gardens. As long as I can put flowers in the painting as well, I am happy. Have just started taking part in Instagram, where you will find more of my new work. Lots of paint, yummy.
It was a great Saturday launch of my artwork at Twenty Twenty.co.uk in Much Wenlock, which is a very charming small town. It was a busy day with many visitors and quite a few of the paintings sold. As it is on for 5 weeks I hope more will go, but of course, the web is one of the easiest ways to buy these days. Mary, the gallery owner, made me very welcome and I had some chatting along with guidance from her, in between the visitors. It is a great gallery, I suggest a journey there, Mary has lots of wonderful artwork.
I am very excited, this Saturday 10th February, is the start day for my Exhibition at twenty-twenty-.co.uk in Much Wenlock. It is a lovely gallery and the paintings are always well hung. I shall be there all day and ready for any discussion that might appear from visitors. There are 24 paintings, new work, and now definitely dry. The exhibition goes on until 17th March, so hopefully my bright coloured paint will cheer up the dull days of February. Look forward to seeing you there!
Jane commissioned me to paint two works to add to the one she already had. It wasn't without some difficulties but between us we worked it out, and I felt very happy with the two finished paintings, and Jane said she loved them. She is a lovely lady and very fond of my style, a girl with 'taste' methinks!!
One of my dear collectors had trouble deciding where to hang Anenomes, so put the painting away for a while. Then she found this perfect space below the shelf rather than above it, and apparently the painting is very happy there. It is great for me to see where my work is hanging, mostly I have no idea. Happiness all round.
