So looking forward to this exhibition.
Cancelled last year due to the pandemic, it has now been booked for Bank Holiday Sunday 30 May 2021. Open from 11 - 4pm.
Landbeach Tithe Barn, situated about 5 miles north of Cambridge off the A10, is around 800 years old and has recently been beautifully restored. The exhibition last year was going to be the first art exhibition held there and the venue hopes to become known for its exhibitions. Why was I chosen? Because of my interest in Medieval Art. This wonderful period has always influenced my art work and was around when the Barn was built.
If you like paintings that reflect those beautiful old tapestries and exquisite manuscripts full of gold leaf do make sure to visit. There will be people happy to tell you about the Barn's history and the big draw, lots of tea and homemade cakes. There will also be some paintings by my fellow artists from Cambridge Drawing Society.
When Lockdown started in May 2020 we all thought it would only last a few months and yet here we are a year later still inside. The first lockdown was the easiest as we could get out in the garden or go for walks and we kept fit with Joe Wicks. We all managed to do a few jobs around the house, catch up with reading and watch films on Netflix.
During the second lockdown I made a promise to myself to draw lockdown sketch a day. Amazingly, I did it!
I am now on my Lockdown 3 series and as I write this, just about to do sketch number 72. I try to make them relevant to my life during lockdown and post an image every evening around 7pm on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. As my following has grown I have been asked by several people to make a book of these sketches. I will but as we don't really know for sure when this lockdown will finish I can't tell when the book will be available.
In the meantime please follow me at
