Hestercombe exhibition

Well, my exhibition is up and has been running for a week now. I have had lots of very positive and encouraging feedback. I was demonstrating last Sunday from 11am until after lunch.   Lots of people came to peek over my shoulder and make kind comments.

I will be there again this Saturday and Sunday (as long as it is not tipping it down), so if you are in the area please do come in and have a chat. I have some cards and mounted photo-prints for sale while I am there. (Free entry to the restaurant, shop and gallery area).

Give a dog a home!

I found this on Sue Clinker's blog and thought it deserved to be shown again, so thank you Sue. It will bring a lump to your throat and may even make you shed a tear. I make no apologies. These chaps need all the help they can get.

Sunlit Hare

This is the last one for my exhibition, which will be at Hestercombe Gardens, Taunton for three weeks from June 18th. 

This is a bit of a departure from my usual detailed work, but I like the colours and looser style....I might persue it a bit more in the future.

Leopard - 'Concentration'

I started this one a very long time ago and always meant to get around to finishing it. My upcoming exhibition got me motivated and here it is.

Measures around 14" x 16" using pastels -Derwent and Faber Castell Pitt pencils and some softer sticks for the background. Support is maize coloured Clairfontein Pastelmatt.

Tiger just completed, I've called it 'Concentration' because he looks as if he is concentrating on prey to pounce on.  I us...
