The same branch growing on my studio, flowers in March, fruit in September. Not so many Peaches as last year, due to the lack of sunshine and to much rain, but I eat the first one this week and it was just delicious!

Tea Time Visitors

I have just finished a new print Tea time visitors. The  original block was done as an illustration for Garden's Illustrated a couple of months ago but I decided I needed to add more colour. So now all the colour work is done and I have started to add the main images. The print will be available from from most of my galleries once it is dry or from my website.

Rutland Water Artist-in-Residence

 In July I started a one day a week residency at Rutland Water. I will be drawing in the hides over the summer and plan to host an exhibition of the work at the end of September in my studio. It is the most wonderful thing to sit in the quite hides and just see what comes along. Swans, geese, Osprey and duck of every shape are just a few. There are two nature reserves at the water, one at Egelton and the other at Lyndon both a short cycle ride away. I have 2 sketchbooks O am working in and then back in my studio using them for reference for new paintings and prints. I will be posting more about this over the coming weeks.

Shropshire in the Sun

I have recently been staying with my father in the Shropshire hills on the boarders of wales. How lovely to see the sun again and have some time walking with my father who at 88 still walks every day. After recently losing his old dog I have been helping him settle in a new dog Slim who is a real gentleman of a dog.
Very inspiring to see the Shropshire hills again and the amazing views across the plain to the welsh mountains.
