Oh so nearly…

Nearly made it. “Guardians of the Mangrove Oyster” (View Picture Profile) was pre-selected for the Columbia Threadneedle Prize, but I have missed out on the final 93 paintings which have been selected for the exhibition. Oh well…! The painting was done to help demonstrate a lecture given by Dr Helen Scales in May 2015, and […]

I have been at St Mary’s Church, Comberton, all morning looking at all the lovely paintings and […]

Group Hug: Meerhug (Artist Code 1520)

Tried out my new Polychromos oil pencils. Very difficult! Even though I have 120 colours, I never seemed to have the one which I needed. Mixing these pencils by layering one colour on top of another to produce the correct colour is a task, I can see, that will only come about with practice. For […]

He’s gone: I sold my Sentinel Yearling Roe deer  (Artist Code 1207) yesterday at Hinchingbrooke (and quite a few other pictures).

Christmas Fayre Invitation at Yaxley

Posted by Tina on November 07, 2015  /   no comment

Received an invitation this morning to have a table at the William de Yaxley Academy’s Christmas Fayre. Unfortunately I have just run out of steam for this year, having attended over 20 exhibitions, shows and fairs, so had to decline. Nevertheless, ‘Children are our future’ as the song goes, so I am showing you the […]
