Open Studio as part of Open Gardens

At the weekend I opened my studio to the public as part of Long Thurlow Open Gardens and Studios weekend. The village was raising money for East Anglian Air Ambulance

The weather was kind making every ones hard work worthwhile. I had at least 40 visitors during the Saturday I was open. It was very rewarding visitors were quick to ask questions about my work and were open minded.

I had spent sometime rearranging and presenting my art work it was three years since I had opened to the public as part of Suffolk Open Studios

During a break at the coast in May I produced a series of small paintings reflecting the changing mood , texture and colour of the sea all painted from the same spot over a 5 day period.
I offered these original art work pieces for sale to raise funds for the cause.

On entering the studio the Sunset Series

Turning right the Figure Stone Series

                  The Found Series some of which were in Frames for the first time one comment Cool !

 Ships and Boats which I had great fun making - the bigger pieces I really like.

 Cliff and Shadow Figures

I love the shadow play on this painting 
'Dunwich beach looking towards Sizewell'

I found the day motivating very worthwhile.
