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'.

So pleased you are entering works again this year and love the local Fenland paintings you created from your sketches. Good luck.

Fraid 29th is over the Bank Holiday weekend and driving all that way would be a nightmare. Even making our way from laura's to the Wild Life Park in Long Sutton midweek would have been a disaster if we had not known our way around the back roads off the
A10, as all roads into Hardwicke roundabout Kings Lynn were jammed - we passed traffic piled up stationary on the A17 all the way from Sutton Swing bridge into Kings Lynn!!
