Our Anglian Arts Project Exhibition finished a week ago at the Naze Centre in Walton on the Naze. Thank you to all those who visited us there, to the exhibitors who showed their work with us and the Centre staff who were so welcoming and helpful. It was particularly good to meet some of my newsletter subscribers in person!
It was a lovely venue, and I particularly enjoyed the view along the cliffs from the windows of our exhibition room, and walking on the beach when we finished each day. I even found my first ever fossilised shark’s tooth!
Now it’s on to the next thing! At present I am completing a commission painting of a very pretty round towered church in South Norfolk, and then I will be continuing with my Essex Paths & Bridleways series. I have been on several long walks recently gathering ideas!
I also have some dates for your diary! On the 2nd, 3rd and 4th December I am doing a Christmas Open Studio event at my house. We will be open from 10.30am – 4.00pm each day. There will be the opportunity to view (and buy!) all my recent paintings, plus my 2022 calendars, Christmas cards, and all sorts of other merchandise arising from my Essex Field project. More details nearer the time.
I’ve also been giving some thought to plans for next year. Yes, I know it’s early to be doing that . . . We have a provisional booking for an Anglian Arts Project exhibition at a newly opening venue in Woodbridge for a week over the late Spring Bank Holiday at the end of May. I am also working out the details of an entirely different painting project for next year, which will run alongside a more ‘usual’ one. The ‘different’ one I’m calling PAINT 7 – that’s all I’m going to tell you at the moment . . . .!
I do hope you’ve been able to enjoy the lovely late summer/early autumn weather we’re having at the moment – my favourite season of the year! 🙂
