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.

I'm adding a Link to the National Trust website, where you can read their current strategy for reopening.
