Usually in June and July I participate in the Carshalton Artists Open Studios event but this year it has been cancelled, due to the Covid 19 Pandemic. It was decided to hold an online exhibition so that Carshalton Artists could display their work for the public to see from the comfort of their armchairs at home. Not all the paintings on this site are for sale, as some have been sold already but if you see something you like, it may be available as a print if the original is not available. You can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Enjoying a relaxed family Christmas. Just had a lovely walk through The Grove, Carshalton. The Ponds and river were full of birds of all descriptions, including two pairs of swans, Canada Geese, Egyption Geese, a variety of ducks and gulls and the inevitable pigeons. Families were out in force, enjoying the winter sunshine and showing off new bikes, scooters and remote control cars, no doubt they were gifts from Santa.
I have managed to do some painting recently, in spite of the scurry of Christmas preparations and gatherings for drinks and meals with friends. I hope to have more time for painting in the new year, before the garden shows signs of needing attention.
Well, I'm not the greatest blogger in the world. I can't believe it has been so long since I wrote a few words. I just decided to add a few of my painted pebbles. I mostly paint them during the winter months, when I'm less inclined to go out. In the summer there always seems to be something to do in the garden. They are relaxing to paint. I use them as paper weights and also put them around some of my flower pots to keep the squirrels out and to add a bit of winter colour.
I have finally got around to publishing my new website. There is still more work to be done and I hope that I will remember to update it regularly. I have had two previous websites but found them very difficult to manage. This new site with Weebly seems to be much easier and more logical to use.
