Harbour Lights exhibition

I have an exhibition in a little gallery in Harbour Lights in Southampton.

That cinema and cafe have a wonderful atmosphere, I have always liked it. The films are normaly exelent, and there are deleicious cakes in the cafe.

It was all very stressful, I had very little time to finish everything. So there are some wet paintings hanging !

But it all came together in the end. We put the titles and prices up today as a final touch.

No time to slow down though because the next one - a joint one with my husband Ben who is a photographer, is coming up in December.

We didn't do a private view or anything like that for this one because we are planning to do that for the December ehxibition.

Wish me luck;)

ROI Event, I got a third prize;)

I am just soo happy.

There was an event yesterday in the Mall gallery organised by the Royal Society of Oil Painters.
Members and non-members were painting 3 different models. We had 3 hours and it was great fun.
Some fantastic paintings were produced and I saw some radically different approaches to the same subject.
The atmosphere was great, people were working and socialising.

It came as a bit of a shock to me when the judges gave me the third prize at the end of it all !!
By the way i really liked the paintings that got the second and the first prize.

Wonderfull experience:)
And I got some painting materials that I will enjoy using!
