The first week of Cambridge Open Studios has passed.
Many thanks to those who visited me last weekend in searing heat (29 degrees) and even when the England football team were playing their quarter final in the World Cup. Fantastic. My visitors make the annual clearing up and polishing worthwhile. I have a wide range of paintings, urban sketches and mono prints with loads of stories to tell.
The medieval rabbit pictured above is based on the gorgeous drawings found in the margins of old medieval manuscripts. It is a collage I made alongside my students - the theme is free in those sessions so beside me there were collages being created of Canadian mountains, American snow scenes, an inspiration from Cezanne and a Green Man. There is certainly diversity in my classes!
The other image above is a painting I sold some time ago although I still have a couple of prints. I think this is one of the best views of Cambridge and I don't think many of our Cambridge Tourists have ever seen it. Maybe I shall paint it again?
I am looking forward to this weekend when I shall be open again and I shall be interviewed on the radio. Gosh, just talking about it makes me nervous.
