Oh dear, I have sadly neglected my blog. Too much to do, so little time exhibitions coming out of my ears but happy to say I sold 3 pictures at my local art group in Somerton and my Tabby Cat sold at the Open Exhibition in Clevedon. I actually managed to get all 4 of my pictures juried in for the first time and as a result have been approached by a local gallery. ALSO I have been awarded Signature Membership of the UKCPS very exciting. So good news all round.
I am now preparing for my first group exhibition to be held at Ilminster Arts Centre from 6th to 18th September. Hanging on Saturday, Private View Sunday 5th between 3 and 5pm. Do come along for tea and cake. We will also been in residence on Wednesday 8th promoting the UKCPS, coloured pencils and giving people the opportunity to have a go.
I will also be demonstrating at the UKCPS annual exhibition in Stamford on 29 and 30 September.

I am delighted that all 4 of my pictures entered for the UKCPS exhibition to be held in Stamford, Lincolnshire in September have been accepted. Last year I had one rejected so I must be doing something right. For more information on the exhibition check out the blog. http://ukcps.blogspot.com/

I have been busy getting pictures ready for a couple of art club exhibitions, can't believe how long it takes filling in forms, labelling everything and choosing which picture to put where. Anyway 4 pictures have been duly delivered to Clevedon for the juried open and I won't know until next week which ones have been accepted.
My lovely man gave me a set of Staedler Fineliners so I have been playing with them today and this is the result. I love the vivid colours, they blend well with a waterbrush and although the colour range is small they mix easily. This picture is partly imagined size about A4 on Fabriano Classico. I think I could get hooked on these, just need to find the right subjects.
