Haylett’s and Heybridge

By Sally Pudney on 16th July 2016

So, yesterday, Graham and I took my paintings – seven of them – down to Maldon to deliver to the Haylett’s Gallery for the Essex Women Artists Exhibition, which starts a week today!! I was very glad of his help, as there are yellow lines outside the gallery so we had a  way to walk, and the big paintings are – well, BIG. But we got them all delivered safely, and I was delighted to hear from gallery owner, Sally Patrick, that she has two people who have already asked for first refusal on Blue Fenders and Waiting for the Tide III – exciting news!

Blue Fenders was chosen by Sally Patrick as the cover painting for the Private View invitations . . .

The tide was going out rapidly, but there were lots of small boats, on the mud, grounded in shallow water (with lovely reflections), and still afloat further out in the estuary.

I had found several likely candidates by the time we’d walked to the sailing club and back, to have lunch at The Jolly Sailor.

And in the studio at the moment? – I’m working on Essex Wood: July, which is quite a challenging one! And I’m also planning for Open Studios in September – which will soon come rushing along, I know. More news about that nearer the time!

Hope you’re having a good weekend. 🙂
