I haven't been able to post for a while and my days in the studio have been a bit disrupted. Why is it that exhibitions all come together? I've been kept busy delivering and collecting and attending private views. Living a few hours outside London makes it all quite a hike! These photos are from the Pastel Society (recieving the Unison Pastel Award) and the Society of Women Artists who had their private view earlier this week.

This young musician sat for us this week for our session at the scout hut. Freddie was a great model, he sat rock steady even though this was his first experience in modelling. He had some great colour notes in his face and he was an absolute delight to paint.

This is my latest larger scale oil painting (30 x 35) using the same model that I used in my 'Front' and 'Back' series. Isabella spent some time in Japan where she aquired this lovely green Kimono. I have had the silk screen for about thirty years now and although it is chinese, I felt that the overall oriental feel worked well, so I hope it doesn't offend the purists. After all 'fusion' is the one of the buzz words at the moment...
