My paintings are delivered to the gallery!

Thank goodness I had another three weeks between the end of the school holidays and the start of my show. I thought I was all but ready back in July but I had clearly forgotten how long those extra jobs take - organising framing, painting edges, photographing, labelling, deciding on names - agghh! Have been run ragged this last week. Anyway, delivered the paintings this morning on time. Now really looking forward to the opening night on Tuesday.

Another Sneak preview!

Just a week to go till my opening night so I thought I'd give you a sneak preview of a couple more new pieces from the show. They don't even have finalised titles yet but the one above shows Crag Vale in early morning light and below is light through the mist on hills above Mytholmroyd. Its still not too late to book free tickets to the opening night just post below.

Mostly just touching up my edges and attaching hangings now, really just can't wait to get on with it - getting a little twitchy to be honest. So when the offer came of a weekend away with some friends I realised that what I really needed was a change of scene, so this weekend I headed off to the lakes. We climbed Helvelin on Saturday (was coaxed into going striding edge way - not the less wobbly knee-inducing way as planned. Felt pretty exhilarated on the top though.) Pub quiz followed in the evening followed by morning run and mooching round Ambleside on Sunday. A lovely weekend, although I have to say am now making my final preparations for the show in a rather blurry-eyed way. Hey ho!wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwiiiii
Friends - old and new!
