North Devon Open Arts Show: Exhibition, Award and Talk (+ one new work): I went to the Museum of North Devon at Barnstaple for the preview of the 11th Annual Exhibition on January 21st where I have 6 paintings on show, and was surprised and delighted to receive an Award and small bursary for which I'm very grateful (may I now assume the moniker "Award-winning" and thus, it seems to me, join the main throng of creativity?). The event and award is at the behest of the Barnstaple Museum, and it is to them principally, as Stella points out below, that I am indebted, and I am grateful to her for the opportunity to correct that. It is to North Devon Arts that I am progammed to give a talk in March at The Broomhill Sculpture Park.
A friend gave me a superb bottle of Oban Malt whisky in exchange for a painting - which seems to me quite a good deal; he thought so too.
One new painting (Witch Hazel) is on the website, click on the image here to see a larger reproduction.
