Summer in the Woods
This is the second painting in a new little mini-series I’m doing about Summer. I painted Summer on the River – which has now sold – a few weeks back, of a view on the Stour near Dedham. This one is Summer in the Woods.
It shows a path through my usual, favourite wood, Hillhouse Wood at West Bergholt. I’m also planning on Summer in Fields, Summer by the Sea, Summer on the Heath, Summer on the Farm . . . . You get the idea! I’m just fitting these in when I’m waiting to do the next visit for my On the Edge project. At present I’m waiting for a suitable day to visit Aldeburgh and Walberswick. AND I’ve also got a new great idea for my next Landlines painting, which will involve a landline I haven’t done before, plus a visit to Great Tey . . .
Haylett’s Gallery Summer Exhibition: Just a reminder, this exhibition in which I have a number of recent paintings, starts this Saturday with a Bucks Fizz reception from 2.00-4.00pm, to which you are warmly invited. Do come if you are in the area. I shall be delighted to see you! The Haylett’s gallery is in Maldon High Street, at the top of the High Street – i.e. the opposite end from the river! – and parking is available in White Horse Lane car park. There is lots of lovely work in the show, including paintings by Barbara Peirson, and ceramics by Pru Green, both of whom you may remember from past Lexden Arts Festivals. 🙂
