I have finally finished the summer show! 40 paintings done and done. It's an amazing feeling when an exhibition is completed, and for me the work is over but it will be a few months before anyone sees the new work and only then will I know if it is a success. Anyway, I have also done some new work for various galleries in Cornwall in time for Easter. And, on top of all this we have almost finished our extension (two years in the making), just in time for the arrival of family from Australia. I've been going a bit mad with it all and feel like I need a break, I'm sick of dust and noise and can't wait to bid the workmen cheerio and get back to normal.
These images are of a painting I've done for the Great Atlantic Gallery in Falmouth. I'm really pleased with the change of scale - I love the weeny man and dog and I may do some more with coastal flowers in the foreground and little cameos in the background...
And here's a bonus photo of my (not so small anymore) puppy Jess, just because I can't resist showing her off!
