Busy** painting and drawing and writing cards for this local exhibition , which is the only one in the area this year. I have decided on a title:
EVERYTHING IN THIS HOUSE TELLS A STORY!
TOUT DANS CETTE MAISON RACONTE UNE HISTOIRE!
Galerie La Carrée, 19 rue des Capucines, 46700 Puy L’Eveque
everyday 14.30 6 18.00 Dec 1 – 16th
**I can’t manage any classes now until 2019.
The inspiration for this painting was a visit two years ago to the Haras of a friend, there was all the paraphernalia of riding, horses and family in a lovely stone building. The life was both inside and outside, the light outside beckoned…..
The September 2014 issue of the local Lotois cultural magazine, La Roulotte, carried an article about me. Along with this they put a short video interview with me on their web site. It is French but you may notice my English accent!
It is also on YouTube:
My solo exhibition at Nymans, the National Trust property in Handcross, West Sussex, opens with a private view from 4pm to 6pm on Friday 12 September. I will there for that event. If you want to join me, please print and bring a copy of the invite (below) and email Nymans to confirm.
The exhibition then runs until 23 November. Admission to the gallery room is free but if you are not a member of the National Trust, you will need to pay the admission fee for the property.
For more details on costs, directions and opening times see the Nymans page of National Trust website.
B and B guests popped in to see the atelier and walked out with a 70 x 50 painting on wood, (actually they had to come back for it). An unexpected bonus for us both.

I am working on a series of works concentrating on light on the floor, so many ideas.
