'Morris Minor' with added cherry blossom…

Thrilled to have delivered my latest bespoke Shelf-Portrait ‘Morris Minor’ to the lovely Mel 🙂
I so enjoyed painting this one – it has some favourites of mine in, including a Duane Michals catalogue from an exhibition in Oxford I saw, a collection of Roger McGough poetry and, of course, the obligatory iconic Observers book.
…and doesn’t her garden look lovely scattered with cherry blossom!

New Artist Fair next weekend :-)

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…

Living Room Literature

030-3
The lovely Sarah Wah of Living Room Literature is displaying some of my work on her walls in her cosy flat, where she runs bespoke ‘sociable-but-serious’ literature courses for small groups of people looking to nurture or rekindle their love of books without leaving the comfort of a relaxed home environment. What a lovely idea!!

Dr Wah is a superb teacher, someone who can bring literary works alive for her students and who has the knack of passing onto them much of her own enthusiasm and close engagement with a wide variety of texts. Her love for literature is matched by her ability to ease you into understanding and appreciating the language, the structure, the meaning – everything, that is, that adds up to the beauty of the finest writing. She has a patience and a preciseness that keeps opening up new possibilities for her students.
