Yorkshire Show

It’s almost time for the Great Yorkshire Show¬†again and after last year’s rained off affair I am hoping for better this year. Got a lot of new stuff for my exhibition in the Art Pavilion so if you are visiting please come in and say hello. The other big thing in my life is I am now on Facebook! What about me doing social networking? Bit spooky I know but I have really enjoyed it and get a lot of feedback which I just love. Please visit my page and if you feel you can ‘like’ my page.

Just returned from visiting Aberdeen where I have a great time at the RSPB sites up there, recently done a large painting of Oystercatchers on a beach on the Moray Firth, tried to capture the wonderful colours and atmosphere as well as the birds.

Don’t know if I mentioned I had a painting selected for the finals of the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year, sadly it did not win but when you see the standard of the paintings selected for final judging it is not too disappointing to come up short. Just have to try harder next year.
