Exhibition At St Matthew's
You may remember I started the year experimenting with landscapes; using mixed media, working plein air and also working up paintings from sketches I made on location.
Each year I am invited to exhibit works at St Matthew's church at Sutton bridge and this year I have decided to be brave and enter a few of the pieces from my 'mixed views' project.
I decided to frame 'Nene Bank at Benwick' (the middle one) in portrait format, which I believe overcomes some of the problems I felt it had when I painted it. (You can read my notes here) I also like the suprise element it offers to have a landscape framed in portrait format.
All three are mounted on ivory in light wood box frames for a contemporary feel, which looks clean and allows the artwork to 'speak' without interruption.
The show runs from 29th August - 4 September. I have been invited to attend on the 29th with my sketchbook in tow, so if you are planning on taking a look you may find me huddled up in a corner scribbling ....Come over and say 'Hi'.
