July Open Studios – we will find a way!!

I am very happy to tell you that this summer I will be taking part in Hebden Bridge Open Studios 🙂

There are two separate events in the planning stages, so if one has to be virtual then the other will be a real live visit!!

Watch this space for more information as it develops… and I would love it if you joined my list to receive news from Roo Waterhouse Art direct to you inbox, with first glances at new work and special offers 🙂

 

New work racing to the finish line for Affordable Art Fair Battersea

‘Shackleton’s Hut’ ©RooWaterhouseArt oil on canvas 16×16″

This new Shelf-Portrait ‘Shackleton’s Hut’ was inspired by a shelf of battered Penguin books I came across in the reconstructed Antarctic explorers’ hut in the penguiin enclosure at London Zoo!! I’m very happy to say that it is finished and ready for showing at the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea this March, with Nicholas Bowlby Fine Art.

Racing to the finish line is a Shelf Portrait for the keen gardener ‘Saturday in my Garden’. I’m enjoying painting in some classic William Morris wallpaper in the background 🙂

Another one on its way is ‘Whizzer and Chips’…….

I’m greatly looking forward to being a part of the art buzz at the New Artist Fair at the Old Truman Brewery next weekend. Lots of new Shelf-Portrait work coming down to London with me, as well as a good selection of Limited Edition Giclee prints, framed and unframed….
Had a little ‘practice hang’ last week…
