Get your glad rags on…


Maybe it’s a bit soon to start talking about after Christmas, but I can’t think of much else at the moment. I’ve booked the Jazz trio, Bought the Champagne and I’ve been trying on vintage dresses! I’m planning something a bit different for the opening of this next exhibition, the exhibition being very different to anything I’ve done before:

Castle carr

This is Castle Carr, Luddenden Dean – it’s the largest painting in the exhibition. I’ve looked at 10 houses in total. Someone let me borrow this photo. Its the last party to ever take place in the castle before it was knocked down. It’s Ronald Murgatroyd’s 21st Birthday party.

So I decided that the theme for the preview should be a 1930s champagne reception.

Friday January 22nd 2016 from 6 -9pm

It seems fitting for the venue; Bankfield Museum is an old Industrialists house, and has a wonderful marble staircase up the the gallery.


And – it’s going to be January, after Christmas, when I think we all need a bit of sparkle as we wait for Spring.

If anyone would like an invitation then please email me your address ( The exhibition is going to be on at Bankfield until April. But the preview will have vintage jazz and bubbly and I think everyone should dress up! I don’t get the chance very often, so I’m going to make the most of it.

I have only one painting left to do – the others are nearly all here in the portfolio section. And the research continues over on my Lost Houses blog:
