Really looking forward to being Artist in Residence at Burton Agnes Hall from 21st April. I will be able to immerse myself in the beautiful gardens and house just as Spring is well under way. Last year when I visited this glorious and charismatic place I was inspired to produce several paintings of the gatehouse which all quickly found new homes. It will be interesting, a year later, to spend some extended time there and see what inspiration I find. I am looking forward to the opportunity to concentrate totally on painting and being creative without any outside distractions. This will be my first experience, after twenty five years of being a professional artist, of finding this unique time. I am so excited about it and am sure some special work will be produced. Please visit me in my shared studio in the summer house. Cards and prints of past paintings of Burton Agnes Hall will be available as well copies of my first book Coming Home- a mid career retrospective of my paintings.

Please visit my website for information on me and my work and also the painting courses I run throughout the year. Looking forward to seeing you at Burton Agnes Hall in April.

Really enjoyed painting this commission of Rosedale. Commissions are a great opportunity to hone painterly skills. In some ways I really liked the simplicity of the early stages but it had to be taken further and the brief was lots of warm colour.

Someone once sent me a little saying in an anonymous ‘share a special part of a poem with a stranger’ project.
It went something like this...

In the darkest part of the dark night - the light comes.

At the time I tossed it to one side dismissively as somehow not coming up to the mark in the profundity I was seeking.

However, it stayed with me and came to mind again when I made the arduous journey from ‘Helmsley Walled Garden’ to ‘Falling Cups’.
