Poppy love

One of the stand out events this year was the poppy installation at the Tower of London. The impact of seeing hundreds of thousands red poppies, turning the moat into a sea of blood and the enormity of the lives lost brought visitors together to give their respect through an amazing piece of conceptual art. My daughter and I took selfies, she saw the tower of London and learned about the meaning of the poppies. We then had fun by Tower Bridge and as ever she brightened the dullest of days. The next day we painted pictures of our day out, Luella’s painting of the poppies sums up the whole day for me, brilliant. Watch out Matisse!

Invitation to Open House Art Exhibition

IMG_4704_2923If you’re anywhere near Wimbledon, or fancy a mooch round some artists’ houses, I’m showing some of my paintings and photography as part of Merton Arts Trail during¬†the last weekend in September. I’ve been working on some mixed media work on canvas, combining photography, painting and sewing, and I’ve just finished a new abstract piece. I’ve not exhibited this work so I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedback.

It’s a joint show, my Dad will also be showing his paintings and his Railway Mice books so we’re taking over the top two floors of the house. Come and have a bit of an explore and finish in the art studio at the top of the house.
