I am showing some recent large work at Gallery No.3 in Ingatestone in Essex over the Christmas period and into the Spring. If you are in the area do stop by, it is a new, light and beautiful Gallery; there will be some late openings nearer Christmas to watch out for too!
 

An Artist on a roadtrip

29/11/2017

I recently took myself off for a bit of a road trip through France. This proved to be a bit of an adventure, mainly due to the dodgy clutch on my old VW Transporter. But it was a wonderful trip and so good to clear the head, get some new painting inspiration and experience other parts of France, which who knew, has some very dramatic Landscape! I drove through Toulouse, down to Carcassonne, through Arles and Aix en Provence where I thought of my dear idols Gauguin and Van Gogh creating beautiful work as well as the odd quarrel… (don’t mention the ear!)
I spent a week in St Tropez, where Matisse spent a lot of time and you can see why. The light is beautiful, and the skies endlessly pink at dusk.
From there I drove up through the Montpellier mountains in rain and fog (this is where I really thought I was going to meet my maker- but the clutch held out). I stayed in beautiful Albi, unfortunately the Toulouse Lautrec museum was closed (as is pretty much everything at this time of year here) and then lastly Bordeaux!
I am working on a new body of work for a show in March and I think that it will be heavily influenced by this trip. Not just the colour and form but the lightness and fun had along the way…
