New Work Summer 2020
Summer Art Weeks 2020 #artweeksfromhome
The dates for the 2020 Summer Art Weeks were due to be Saturday 20th June to Sunday 5th July. Last year I took part in the 'Open Studios' run by Warwickshire Open Studios. It was a great experience to open up my home and studio for people to view my work. It was a success in terms of the number of visitors and the wonderful conversations that I had with fellow artists and art enthusiasts. I started a visitors book and the comments that many people made were incredibly complimentary and I have taken a lot of encouragement from the ultimate compliment which is when somebody purchases my work. I was really looking forward to exhibiting at Compton Verney Museum and Art Gallery during the Summer Art Weeks but instead I have created a virtual online gallery to browse and purchase new work.
A new collection of paintings to celebrate the beauty of the landscape that is in close proximity to Stratford Upon Avon where I am based. I have chosen to focus on some of my favourite views that I enjoy visiting and painting. This year I was due to exhibit at Compton Verney Museum and Art Gallery and some of my recent paintings are inspired by the beautiful lake and grounds. Other views that I have painted include the Welcombe Hills which is a nature reserve for walking and taking in the views across the landscape with flower-rich grassland, woods and ponds. I am fortunate to live in the Clopton area of Stratford- Upon-Avon and during lockdown I have spent many hours walking with my daughter and partner around the beautiful countryside, which has provided endless inspiration for this new series of work.
