In the background

I like to add my up to date paintings here and hope it doesn't bore the living whatnots out of you all -

However, I don't add everything here.  In the background I'm painting work for the National Trust at Arlington Court (yes, I do go on about this from time to time) but not all pieces get seen as I'm saving them up for an Exhibition there.

Of course, 2020 has surprised us all.  We should have had the vision to see this one coming!
(sorry, slight play on words and joke there - did you get it?!...okay, I'll help  "2020 Vision")

So, with the pandemic and things being Closed, it has also meant that building works at Arlington Court were put on hold.  This has knocked on to my Exhibition, as the space I would have used is going to remain being used for other things.  Next year it is then, she says with fingers crossed.

Regardless I continue painting - as if I would stop.  I have a painting on the easel done from photo reference at the moment, although I am very hopeful of getting back there to do some plein air painting soon.  National Trust properties are reopening again, albeit tentatively and not all properties are the same, so it's worth checking first before you think of visiting.  Arlington is opening with booked tickets for now, but doesn't include the House or Carriage Museum.  That said, there's plenty to see, it's a vast estate.

Good news that National Trust properties will be reopening soon, so much lost income for them. Hopefully you will be exhibiting your work next year, I'll cross my fingers for you.

Thanks Eileen, yes, it takes a lot of funding to keep places going, so they are pleased to be opening again. Shame it isn’t fully open yet, but still a few weeks to go before the July surge of visitors. Just hope they don’t bring Covid with them! ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Thanks Robin my number 1 supporter and cheerleader ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป‍๐ŸŽจ๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ™‚. They may end up with some paintings in the offices, so that will be nice.
I like the idea of going down in history , for all the right reasons ๐Ÿคฃ
