Southwold: early summer
Just finished the most recent painting in my On the Edge series!
This is larger than the other paintings in the series so far, being 24″ x 16″ or 61cm x 46cm. I wanted to have space to go to town on those waves! Southwold is the most northerly place on the coast that I’m including in my project.
Other news: After a gap of 11 or 12 years I have re-joined Colchester Art Society, and I’m sending in three paintings for selection for their summer show at The Minories in Colchester High Street, almost opposite the castle. The exhibition is on from 21st June – 26th July. I hope I get something selected to be exhibited!
The Friends of St Mary’s Old Church at West Bergholt have organised an exhibition over the weekend of 15th/16th June. They have had screens made to fit over the pews, and will be serving refreshments. This is the church next to which you park if you are walking down to Hillhouse Wood – which you may remember is the wood I painted during 2016 for my ‘Twelve Months in an Essex Wood‘ project. I have three of those paintings left, so I’m sending them all in, plus Landlines: Field Boundary, which is also of the wood at bluebell time. The address is Hall Road, West Bergholt, CO6 3DU. The paintings will be on display until 3.30pm on the Sunday afternoon, but I’m not sure yet of the other exact opening times, but I’ll let you know when I get the info. If you’re local to the Colchester area you might like to pop in and have a look and support them – and maybe have a walk round the wood afterwards! 🙂
