Flying Monk Arts & Crafts Trail 2016

It's time to make plans.
I'm excited to be taking part in the Flying Monk Art Trail, this year in Malmesbury, Sat 24th and Sun 25th September.

I will be exhibiting with Claire Baker Ceramic Art and the painter Mary Ray Smith, in the Burgess's Room, next to the Tourist Information Centre in Malmesbury town centre. Like all the other exhibitors during the trail, we are open 10am - 5.30pm. However unlike all the other venues, myself, Claire and Mary will continue to exhibit until Friday 30th, so if you miss the weekend, you have the rest of the week to drop in and say hello.

There is so much to see this weekend, just take a look at the programme / map below and start making plans:

More Paisley Rabbit And The Tree House Contest

Here's a short follow up to my even shorter post last month. Below you can see the completed single page illustration of Mr Otter sat in a muddy puddle after failing in his first tree house building attempt.
"All under control - nothing to see here."
The next illustration I have been working on (and expect to be still working on it for weeks ahead) is the cross section of Paisley's magnificent tree house. The rough design for the tree house was a challenge, so goodness knows what state my brain will be in when I complete the final illustration. I can see myself sitting in the corner of the studio floor, staring, slack-jawed and unresponsive. Some people would probably not notice any difference in me!
One tree house to rule them all...

Propped up against my studio wall, and measuring over a metre in height. This watercolour is a challenge on all levels.
