The Fiveways Artists Group exhibition in France at Chateau Bosmelet has just opened. Fran Doherty sent us an email today with a progress report. Here is a picture showing a corner of the exhibition with one of my paintings. [It is the little one on the right showing Brighton Bandstand]
The London Lives competition have posted their long list of 200 artists who have succeeded so far in the competition. I was nervous and rather relieved when I saw that my name was in the list. I have spent a bit of time searching Google to see more about the other 199. Crikey, they are good! Check it out here http://www.guardian.co.uk/london-lives/longlist
The new conservatory roof is in place. Steve has done a very good job. It rained a little over the weekend and all is well. No leaks, self cleaning glass OK, oak beams look wonderful. Next step is replastering the living room, and installing a new window in the back room. Maybe we can get our house back soon. We have got to do a load of redecorating before the next Open House, in 14 weeks time. Yikes.
