I’m so happy to tell you some amazing news! Hence the reason I haven’t blogged in a few weeks. Everything just turned a corner and dropped great opportunities into my world. Well, they didn’t just arrive – I’ve been striving for them really, and the hard work has paid off 🙂
The gallery that represents me has been without any of my paintings for a month or two as I promised them some new work ready for their major exhibition throughout May ( and beyond). I’ve promised them they would be brand new and not seen by anyone until they were delivered. All the paintings are brand new and not shown in any venue before, although two have been on Flickr for a couple of months. They’ve been delivered now so you can now see them all together right here. They will be exclusively available at Chimney Mill Gallery. They go on show on 1st May. Here they are:

The following painting is the one that has been “tweaked” and completed. The main noticeable difference are the windows.

And finally and new one this year, but you’ve seen before:

So I’m really pleased with these ones going to the gallery.
On the same day I delivered three paintings to be on long term display at a lovely restaurant called the Fox Inn in Bury St Edmunds. They are paintings that were completed back in 2009, but they were obviously waiting for their most suitable place to be admired and look fabulous in their place. They are for sale too, through the Fox Inn. They have asked for four more artworks which I’ll be delivering next week.
Exhibitions have exploded for me this summer for 3 months. After the show at Chimney Mill, I have a week with Susan Miller in The Edmund Gallery in the centre of Bury St Edmunds, like the one in 2010. This is my personal major show this year as there will be around 30 of my artworks on sale. Here’s the poster:
Then after that I have a Solo Show for the whole of July, Upstairs at the Tap in Ipswich, Suffolk. This is very exciting as its the first year that the venue have opened the gallery upstairs. Its a lovely space, and is used for little functions throughout the month too, so apart from being open everyday, it will provide a lovely decor for events.
The last bit of news to tell you this time is about the book. A few years ago I used to keep a blog called Keeping Creative. It was well received and an exciting little project. I always said I’d develop it and release it as a self published E-book one day. Well, something better happened! I met someone at a business breakfast last week who’s an author (and it turns out, the commissioning editor of a book publisher, Bookshaker). After chatting about this and that, we got talking about my blog and my desire to turn it into a book. Well, the upshot of all this is that she wants me to write this book and they will publish it! So now I’m just getting the proposal together for her to approve and I’m on my way! Me…an author!! Very exciting!!
There you have it – all my news I’ve been bursting to tell you all. Needless to say I’m on a high right now…..
Back soon 🙂
