I’m typing whilst scanning in two new pieces. Cruck Barn at Little Stubb is a commission, being delivered this weekend. It’s of a little nest of houses in a hidden valley that I would never have know was there had I not been invited to paint it. The second, called Hawthorne Trees (at least for now) is of a terrace of houses up in Birchcliff in the late Autumn sun. This is the first finished piece for my exhibition at The Calder Gallery in June.
Previewing on the afternoon of Sunday September 21st, I am having a new solo exhibition at the Harrison Lord Gallery In Brighouse. I have several new pieces – amongst them a walled garden, a courtyard in Cockermouth and the riverside Sowerby bridge. There will also be prints of new and recent work. I will be there for the afternoon, along with my daughter Hattie who will eat all the snacks if you don’t come along and help!
