I apologise for the recent lack of input (life has thrown me a few curved balls of late)
At the time of writing I am battling against an untimely attack of shingles and suffering from the effects of the medication more than the illness!
I have kept myself busy getting paintings ready for several local summer exhibitions and am hoping for some luck in one or two juried shows.
I was disappointed to learn that my painting "security" didn't make the grade for the Society of Equestrian Artists exhibition but "you can't win 'em all" as they say, so onward and upward with fingers crossed for next year ;-)
This weekend brings the annual exhibition in aid of the local hospice and as usual I will have a few works on sale there so hopefully I will be feeling better and able to pay a visit.
Meanwhile the painting above is one I completed this week during my enforced confinement, it is a local scene currently festooned with beautiful wild poppies, great for a first outing for some of my lesser used pastels.
