Moths and butterflys.. Collagraph

Just a small moth project I'm working on. 
I love collagraph plates sometimes better than the finished result.

Flushing Art Fair..

Here are my paintings hung at the 2017 Flushing Art Fair.
Sadly no sales but plenty of interest which has got to be a good sign.

Bodrugan, artists retreat.. Poppies..

My artist retreat at Bodrugan Barton.  Mevagissey, Cornwall.

 At the beginning of April fellow artist Vicki Clarke from the Fannie & Fox gallery invited me to take part in a week long painting retreat.. 
A last minute cancellation had occurred and there were two spaces available.. How could I refuse..
I set myself a couple of goals,  to work with acrylic's on paper and to 'loosen up'!
These are some of my 'poppy paintings'.
  Acrylic on watercolour paper 
 Thought you might like to peek inside the barn - looking from kitchen..
 View looking from lounge area towards kitchen
Frankie Cooper and Patricia Lomax deep in discussion.
 Many a delightful meal spent at this table..
 Views on one of our walks.. Chapel point, Portmellon
 My work accumulating during the week long residency .
The pin boards were a great idea.
 My workspace.. A mess as usual. Still life.. The 'orchid', I think it got the better of me to be honest..
View from the Studio barn.

Can't wait for next year....
