The last few weeks have gone past rapidly: the Frome Open Studios Art Trail was enjoyed by all those who visited as well as the participating artists.

‘Firebird and the Golden Apples’, unfinished. Oil on board. August 2019

The Artists’ 303 group will be exhibiting at CICCIC, Venue 27, in Taunton as part of the Somerset Art Weeks (SAW)- Contrasts: Old & New. In both exhibitions I will be showing two new pieces based on the traditional Russian folk story The Firebird and The Grey Wolf.

During SAW a selection of my paintings based around the theme of water, as a nod to the overall SAW theme of Silver, will be shown at The Old Stores in Evercreech, Venue 87. There will be a number of artists exhibiting so will be a worthwhile venue to visit.
