Looking forward to meeting everyone….in fact I met a few yesterday (while I was setting up) who arrived early in error….one an amazing lady of 92 who gained her Art BA at the age of 74!Don’t worry if you are a little more ordinary than that – all welcome!

55x75cms

So often when I take a commission, it is as a gift – which means to save the surprise, it has to remain off my blog!

I am very happy to have been commissioned locally to mark a business anniversary….it’s not on the wall there yet… I’ll let you know when it is. 

@portsmouthnews #LeeOnSolent @FestivalLee #seagull #LeeInfants 

  
The Portsmouth News ran this great photo of our ‘naughty seagull’ from the Lee on Solent Infant  School’s group artwork for Lee Festival of the Arts. Thank you Portsmouth News!

Two small framed artworks by the children are still available to make silent bids for, in Prospect’s new office until Friday. Take along an envelope with your ‘sealed bid’and you could keep a small momento of the festival for your home or office, whilst helping to raise money to develop the Infant School’s outdoor space! 

@FestivalLee #LastDay #Hampshire #LeeOnSolent #Tesco 

  
Well it’s the final day of Lee on Solent’s inaugural Festival of the Arts. There’s still time to see the art trail if you haven’t made it yet!

What a great thing to fill a dull blustery Saturday…..and you could make time for some refreshments inside one of Lee’s lovely cafes 🍰 en route!

@FestivalLee #BunPenny #LeeOnSolent #Hampshire #ink #sketchbook

  
A small drawing outside the Bun Penny in Lee on Solent this evening. Turns out I can’t Tweet the Bun Penny – they don’t do Twitter. Will they see it on Face Book?

I walked to Art Trail today too; great to see so many businesses hosting a good variety of artists 👍🏼 I recommend you take time to do the same before the event closes on the 9th !

Detail from HMS Victory, side view, plein air ink drawing which was one of my finalist pieces in the last Kyffin Williams Drawing Prize competition in Wales. See it in Laneway Cafe in Lee as part of the Arts Festival until July 9th.

Well here it is. Lee on the Solent Infant School’s contribution to the Arts Festival, kicking off on Friday 1st July. It is a group effort with descriptive mark making and wax resist. Hand coloured papers are also used for collaged areas and some 3D details. All the work is about Lee on Solent’s seafront and includes a naughty seagull stealing chips. The artists are 4-7years old. A BIG thank you to Prospect for sharing their empty old window space. Well done everyone!

 I will be exhibiting myself in two venues…..more on that another day 😃

Fabulous red-pink traffic lights here at the junction in Lee. A view I see often as I come back with our dogs but this time at evening light. I also like the poles breaking up the space in the sky. Maybe an addition to my Spice Island Art Trail show?
