four weddings and a punch up

I'm starting March with a less hectic diary.  February was manic but a great time for family get togethers; my daughter's 21st celebrations, an 80th do in Nottingham, a big family 80th bash in Bath, my mum's more sedate birthday meal, my hubbies even quieter birthday and a mad dash to Heathrow to collect my son who's returned home after a year travelling in New Zealand.  

Standing waiting for my little boy (6' 5") to come through arrivals and reflecting on recent family events made me think of two of my favourite films "Love Actually" and "Four Weddings and a Funeral".  Richard Curtis, the writer, must have gained inspiration from such hectic family life whether his or observational.  Either way both films were amazing and thankfully none of February's shenanigans resulted in a punch up!

March is promising to be a very busy month with lots planned and already I've had time in the studio, finished a commission which has now been collected and I've started two new ones.

March also sees my first exhibition for this year

MOONLIGHT, MIST AND MOORS - Featured Artist at Cromford Studio and Gallery -

11 pieces of my work will be on display throughout March with four brand new framed oils 

Meet the Artist - I will be at the gallery painting on Sunday 12 March 2-4 .it's a fab gallery full to the rafters with an array of art, jewellery and ceramics

Be lovely if anyone wanted to pop along on the 12th or visit the gallery beforehand to look at my work.  The owner of Cromford Gallery always offers a warm welcome

Anyway as it's approaching wine o'clock I'll sign off now and catch you soon.  Thank you for reading

Take care
