Regatta and art 2017

I was honoured with one of my paintings being put on the front cover of the Goring and Streatley Regatta program. This painting inspired by light falling on water, I donated to help raise money for the Goring Gap Boat Club. It went into a silent auction and helped raise funds towards the new boat house. Well done lucky winner...whoever you are.
It was a shame about the rain but hey.
Also at the regatta I ran an art table for children (and adults!) to have a creative moment...lovely to see how absorbed children can get. Creativity at it's best. Here's to more creative moments.

Cushions' homes..individual style..

I am so delighted that my art cushions have been arriving at their homes. Everyone's home has a different style and feel, so it is so lovely to see how my cushions are taking part in that scenario. I have just been sent pictures...the cushions looking so good! but all different! let me know if you would like one of my paintings on a cushion for your home.

Young art enthusiast

A little girl who I have been teaching art to has bought (with a little help from her lovely parents!) one of my paintings.
Here is the moment I gave it her recently. She is a very keen artist already and with such support I think she is always going to have an enjoyment of art.
This is how I first came to appreciate art through a lovely neighbour who made art when I was a young girl.
I hope she will remember this with fondness, as will I.
