More diary dates.


Many thanks to all the visitors who came
to my Studio Open Day on Sunday.

I really enjoyed meeting you.

Enthused by the event, I have decided 
to have two more days before the weather turns cold.

Here is the invitation to the next events.
Come and see where these paintings are made.

Below is an oil painting I found in my store.
It was painted a few years ago.

I have hung it in the studio.

'Ebbing tide'

Oils on panel 9 x 11 inches

Another oil painting below from my store.
It's like meeting an old friend.

'Before the tide'

Oils and cold wax medium on 10 x 12 inch canvas board 

This small oil painting has now gone.

'Ebb tide' 

One of my visitors on Sunday has given it a new home.

A little corner of my garden.
This Iceberg climbing rose was 
planted in 1975.

That's all for now...
thank you for your company.

Open Day.

In my studio...

I am opening my Wild at Heart studio on 
Sunday 19 September 
just for a few hours, 11am until 3pm..

Please take me as you find me,
it's quite a wild place in a tiny village.

Happy to meet anyone who comes.

My artist granddaughter Dixie is coming to help
and her new painting will be on display.

If you would like to visit and see what
happens in this timber cabin,
we are off the A57 two miles from Saxilby,
on Main Street, Broxholme.

Catching up with things.

It's autumn...

Where have two months gone?
I have suddenly realised that my last blog was in June.

I have retrieved this blog from the 'saved' 
section and decided to post it now.

I was talking about mounting some acrylic 
paintings on cradled panels....

......Continuing the mounting process...
I mounted these pictures on 
8x8 inch cradled wood panels.

The square panels have a wider edge 
and will stand alone making a change from hanging.



'Passing by'

Back in June....

...Recently my time has been divided between garden and art.
Also, I have been inclined to sit around looking when it is hot.

Taking time to watch the birds, butterflies and bees
rather than looking for the next job.

A path to my studio...

Now we are in September.
Autumn has really arrived and leaves
are falling from our trees after several 
weeks without rain.

The harvest is in and the days
are filled with the hum of tractors ploughing.

'Lost moments'

An oil painting after a rework.
I like the abstract feeling of this.
It has a hidden journey.
