I've had great May Day Bank Hols!


Despite the weather trying to ruin my bank hols I've have had a really good one! The sun managed to shine as I wandered though the woods at Poulston Lacey, the bluebells were fantastic. My spirits where also raised by my success at my first art exhibition. I managed to sell 5 paintings! This is a real boost for me I really needed some reassurance that my art is of interest to the other people. I sometimes think I should get a 'proper job', but one thing I know is nothing else could possibly give me the satisfation I get from my art. Enough waffle from me, at the moment I'm torn between doing some paintings from my travels and getting out to catch the spring explosion. I think maybe the latter.

Lovely photo....it's the subject that I'd go for...maybe a couple of figures along the path...just beautiful. I know what you mean...I sometimes get the 'guilts' that I don't have a proper job..I used to work at a bank...I'd much rather be painting. Keep at it..it's worth it

It's a shame you didn't let me know about your exhibition - I would have liked to have seen it. :-)

Sorry I was a bit poor about advertising it, it wasn't a solo exhibition it was part of my art group. After being stuck in Spain I didn't have much time, so I'm afraid that it snuck up on me, I did however have a poster nailed to the tree in my front garden! We will be exhibiting again in October, I promise I'll let you know.
The bluebells are lovely, I always get nervous about flowers, never know what to do with them. I got up into Richmond park today and got some brilliant deer photos, so I'm being tempted by them.
