After a very late night and busy morning I opened up today to visitors. It’s been a quiet day but from feedback I realise I need more signs: job for tomorrow morning!

Here is a quick video tour

Today’s Artweeks theme is ‘A glorious garden’ - video here:

One of my paintings is featured today which is a great way to introduce my new bird series, now added to my store. Can you recognise the species in these paintings?

Today's theme seems rather apt as I ponder how best to display my disparate mix of paintings at my open studio event. I swing between painting still-life, wild-life, portraits and landscapes... I really should settle on a theme and stick with it!

You can watch today's themed art trail video here:

I have mostly got everything framed now, just waiting on a delivery this morning. I still have to decide how best to display these in my limited space whilst still allowing distancing between visitors. I am also finishing uploading all the new pieces to the web-site ready to send an early-bird link to my VIP followers later today. There's still time to sign up if you want that link plus a special gift! Just click the button at the top of the page

I'll share a video tour of the display tomorrow - see you then!

Today's theme is 'Elements of the earth' and you can view today's themed video here:, featuring lots of ceramics and pottery.

There are just two more days to prepare for Artweeks on Saturday, and I thought I should share another painting in my new bird series.

This is a great tit, having one last look back at the bird feeder before flying back to its nest. I am very grateful to the photographers in the facebook group ' free reference photos for artists' for allowing me to use their beautiful bird photographs free of copyright. I would love to take my own images but just don't have the time or patience (or decent enough camera) to do that at the moment. The reference image for this (and for several other of my birds) came from the photographer Bill Jones.

The bird collection will be showing for the first time on Saturday, together with other new paintings that haven't yet been seen. They may or may not have the right frames as I am still waiting for a delivery!

My VIP followers will have first access to the collection from Friday as I will be emailing them with a special access link. If you want to join them, sign up using the link above - you'll also get a 10% discount code to use (and other special offers and previews).

Got to crack on - lots still to do! Web-site isn't fully updated yet with all the new framed images and paintings and I still have to string up and hang a lot of paintings. I did manage to finish tidying up the garden yesterday though - just the grass to cut (or I could just say I'm taking part in no-mow May!)

Until tomorrow
