Paint out Norwich

Paint Out Norwich 2016 this year I was acccepted into the biggest east Anglican landscape competition and my mother Marian was too. I went off in the mornings to a more challenging views and she arrived on the bus from Cromer at lunchtime to paint together in the afternoon to do even more challenging views. Like having two canoes lashed together and both of us canoeing and painting views from the river.
Painting above is the train station in Norwich early in the morning looking intensely at all the lines of steel and cast iron can be mind blowing.  Takes along while with the quill pen to get the marks on the damp paper. I choose the station because it was pouring with rain and its a sort of awning which is ok in the rules. The staff were amazing and I had a good view of the old part of station and the trains through the modern smoked glass.
I would like to go back there later and paint other views.
Exhibition of all the paintings created at Paint Out Norwich as well as my mothers paintings and all the contestants work in the event is held at the Hostry in Norwich Cathedral.

Hive Alive Sydney

Hive Alive opening night is 6pm 21 September 2016 at Alpha House just off King street on Union street. A show about bees to save bees.  My sculpture travelled from Norwich to Sydney via my visiting brother Justin who resides in Sydney with his family. The sculpture is made from Plasticine it may be reshaped from the long journey. Very much a rare Sydney show of a collection of artists that hung out in Sydney in the 1990's and had a Golden Bee theme back then. The exhibition is the start of a World Golden Bee community and happenings.
