Just to let you know that I will be on BBC Somerset at 11.40am on this Friday morning, which is the 22nd November, with Ben McGrail. And also a little reminder that my Exhibition in Cross is this coming Saturday, 23rd November. Lots of lovely framed prints that will make wonderful Christmas presents AND the cream teas!!
Looking forward to s really lovely day and hoping to see lots of my friends there.
This is the latest painting that I have worked on again and removed me and mum from it. There was only half of mum anyway. I’m not very good at painting people, but I’ve left Ben the dog as I thought he looked good. The red bow looks smart. I started the painting after a holiday on Exmoor, which is very beautiful. I like the trees and the way I painted the river.
Acrylic on Board. 60 x 40 cms. Price £250.
This is the invitation to my exhibition in Cross near to Axbridge. It’s going to be a great day with lots of friends and neighbours coming. Mary Counsell is going to do the food and we’re going to have cream teas in the afternoon as well as home-made soups at lunch time. All the money from the food is going to ‘Ups and Downs South-West’. We did this about six years ago and it was a lovely day. This time I’ve got framed prints and cards for sale and they would make lovely Christmas presents.

It is wonderful how they are raising the awareness of just what people with DS can achieve
A group of friends from Raphael House in Bristol, came to visit my exhibition yesterday. I used to live with them until I moved back with my mum. My ex-keyworker, Moira, came too, and it was a very special treat to see her.
Last Thursday evening it was my Private View at the Princess Hall. It was a really lovely evening and about fifty people came, including my brother, Tristan, who came from London.
Everyone said nice things about my paintings and now five have been sold, and I have sold prints as well, but I’m not sure how many. Daisy was there taking more photos, and this is one of hers that is in the Burnham and Highbridge Weekly News.
This lovely article was in the local paper this week. Last Saturday I did a ‘Meet the Artist’ session at the Princess Hall and met lots of really interesting people, including my art teacher from Kings of Wessex school. It was lovely to see him again. He taught my brother too.
