I am very pleased to have been accepted to show one of my paintings at The Beaney in Canterbury.
The Beaney.

The exhibition titled Winter will be in their Front Room from Saturday 22nd November till Sunday 18th of January.
I will be there on Sunday 7th of December with a selection of cards and prints for sale.

The Beaney is a museum, art gallery and library in the heart of Canterbury, which shows a range of international exhibitions as well as more local shows.

The painting I am showing is called Winter Shelter II    and shows an old oak tree trunk frosted with ice and sheltering birds and animals. A fox stands at the foot of the tree looking out at the landscape.

I have also painted another piece Winter Shelter I which shows a similar scene with different birds and animals.

 I am working on the final items to take to the Aunty Nora's Vintage and Handmade Market in Deal on Sunday 23rd of November.

The event is being held in the Astor Theatre in Deal  website for the theatre here.    10 till 3.30pm.

I have been gilding and painting some of my shells, collected from the beaches around the Isle of Thanet, and making some strings of the shells with vintage and collected beads.

Other things I'm taking include prints and cards and original works of art, photographs and other seasonal  craft items.

I'm also experimenting with some different photographic papers from Permajet and the sunset and misty sky photos of Margate harbour have come out very well on the glossy and pearl papers.
