My October exhibition

I have found that I still have a few of my Florentine hand-made frames by the wonderful Pier Luigi, which fit my very small oil paintings perfectly.

Since I now have quite a few large paintings for my exhibition, it will be nice to show these since they will cost a lot less than the large canvases!

Everything is a bit frantic and chaotic here as I now deal with the exhibition publicity, framing and the last touches to the large paintings … and of course, here is the question; “Will it all fit into our car?!!”… oh dear, we might well have to find a trailer or send stuff by a carrier; I think I had better do a practise car-loading next week.

FLYING Paintings from France and Italy

Another not very small painting! 🙂 I’m in the last stages of putting my exhibition together and finishing the larger paintings that I had to abandon with all the hospital buiness.


THE BLUE LAKE Oil on canvas 60cmsx50cms

This is a lake that I know well from the several flights I have had in this direction; always tantalising on hot summer days especially since (with more laws to do with public safety) the owners decided to ban swimming there.

This particular flight was in late spring, with the sharp greens of wheat fields, not yet beginning to ripen.
