Since my previous blog I painted another two scenes from Wyndcliffe Court Gardens:
I then had an appointment with the curator/artist at Wyndcliffe (pronounced Wye, not Wind, as the name is taken from “Wye and cliff”, as the house is situated near a steep cliff above the river Wye). I decided to take along some florals as well as the Wyndcliffe paintings as none of them were framed, and so easy to transport. He liked my work, particularly my use of colour, and he said he would like to show all that I had taken. We had a good chat about art, which I enjoyed very much as I don’t get to see many other artists these days.
These are the florals:
Since then I have been very busy framing, as my husband/framer has been away sailing. It took a while, but I was able to deliver all twelve paintings yesterday in time for the holiday weekend.
I also have a week booked in early August to show my paintings at The Old Station, Tintern. It is a popular tourist venue for visitors to Tintern, and there is a shop inside an old railway carriage where my paintings will be on display. I have decided that small local scenes are probably most likely to sell there, so I have painted a couple that are each only 5″ x 7″ in size:
I already have some unframed paintings that I might display at The Old Station, and I will need to paint some more. Watch this space!
