Everything Will Be Ok

These veggies are from our local pick your own farm. I was arranging them on the worktop and the leafy arm seemed to fall naturally around the onion as if to say "don't worry, everything will be ok."
Sometimes that's all we need.

Larger Than Life

What is it to be "larger than life" ?
  Sometimes a title comes to my mind before I paint and other times, like this painting I looked at it and felt that the sunflower wants to come out of the canvas and be more than it is. When I paint I feel larger than life. How does painting make you feel?

New Artist Fair

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and enjoying getting back into painting after the long summer. I know many have taken up the 30 day challenge with Lesley, good luck, its a fantastic challenge.

The New Artist Fair was this weekend and I can't tell you how exhausted I am. My friend and I took my paintings up on Friday and spent a good two hours hanging them. There was an evening preview but we came back early because of work and family. We went back on Sunday and stayed for four hours, it was fun meeting all the other artists and visitors. I am very excited to tell you that I have an offer from a bricks and mortar gallery in Maidstone to sell my work!!!!

As of last week I am also represented by Advocate Art which is an artists agency who got in touch with me ( it makes a great change from chasing people ), so a lot has been happening and its all good.

Hopefully I will get back into painting today. :  )
