London Pilgrimage

The week before last I went to London for two days with Sheila Pomeroy, B.P.B.F, (brilliant painter and best friend), and before you even think it, we were there to see some exhibitions, and not shopping/partying.

I have found it very difficult to get down to clear the studio for the open days in December this year. This wasn’t helped by my trying to experiment with a new, very large multiple plate etching. There were also lots of work that had to be delivered to various Christmas shows (I think it’s ok to mention the “C” word

It seems less than a year since we last put together the artwork and design for the calendar for 2015; now we have finished and printed the calendar for 2016. So get those orders in for it.

You can place an order HERE or ask MLM directly to keep you some if you are coming to the studio open days this December.

   

Painting (and decorating)

RHA annual exhibition

The last few weeks have been absolutely manic with trying to finish work, dry prints, posting off work, submitting work online, framing and physically delivering submissions. At this stage, I am completely – as Ma would’ve said – “meithered”! But today, as I went for the post, I spotted a little brown envelope which filled me with dread. This was the decision on the work I sent in for the RHA annual show. As I ripped it open, I could barely read it, eventually I deciphered that I got one out of the three selected…..Hallelujah!
