...at Quacks!

Recently I have been getting very excited by mono printing and fish and birds. Also being let loose in the comp room at Quacks is a delight. Having the run of all the old wooden letter blocks.

My life as an artist goes through weird phases. If anyone asked me what are you working on I would say mono prints of fish and birds, hand printing of letters, a four foot painting of birds which is too big to get in my car so I am figuring out who owns a van in the village to get the piece to the framers. All the other paintings are in my head and sketchbook and there is never enough time because there are all those other life things that have to be done.

My husband has persuaded me to go sailing for two weeks in October. I will be prepared. I am taking acrylic paint paper which means I can paint at sea. Hopefully they will be something other than blue I am going to record the entire trip visually. A painting a day. This is a challenge because usually all I can see is blue sea and blue sky. I cant believe I am going away when I have three Christmas exhibitions to prepare for. This is down to the persuasive powers of a man. Therefore EVERYTHING must be prepared and at the framers for next week and Mail chimp newsletter out.

I've been painting out in the fields around Huttons Ambo in this boiling hot weather. Quite excited about this new work which has reached places I have never been before.

We have been sailing around the Saronic Islands and the Argolic Gulf in Greece. In-between pulling ropes I sometimes manage to squeeze in a few quick sketches to work into paintings when I return.
