Firstly, thank you to everyone who contacted me to leave supportive and kind comments after reading yesterday's blog - I've read them all and will respond a little later when I have more time (I have just a few minutes free right now to write this quick post about the new paintings!). What some of you said really gave me food for thought, and I always appreciate the time you take to share your thoughts or advice with me.
Anyway, on to the art! I recently completed three new landscape paintings for the Serena Hall Gallery in Southwold, Suffolk. They're all 12x12", priced at £295.00 each, and are available through the gallery. I'm now working on some much larger landscapes for another gallery and also for an upcoming show in Aldeburgh in May. It's been really good to get back to painting on canvas again - I'm loving every moment and the chance to get my hands covered in paint (although it's an absolute nightmare to wash off at the end of the day!).
