Preparations for my Calm and Collected Exhibition this weekend are well underway and I’ve been buzzing about collecting paintings, framing prints, writing blurbs, and generally trying to pull everything together! As well as still working on a painting I would like to show (there will be a Wet Paint warning!!)
I had a great afternoon browsing around the Affordable Art Fair in Battersea while collecting some paintings. Such a variety of art on display. The highlight for me was the wonderful seaside light and atmosphere reflected in the colours of the buildings in the paintings of Camille Dowse
I managed to find time for family and nature too with a Thames-side walk in the morning sun, admiring the autumn colours in the park in the afternoon and a family feast in the evening 🙂
In celebration of my own architectural heritage (my great-great grandfather being the prolific, much admired Victorian architect Alfred Waterhouse) I have now published a series of 100 Limited Edition Mounted Prints of the original shelf portrait painting ‘Architectural Heritage’ and they are available to buy in my shop 🙂
There will be a preview evening of Calm and Collected
on Thursday 28th October from 6pm to 8pm
to which you are all invited.
The exhibition is then open on Friday 29th, Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st from 11am to 5pm.
