I'm going on a one day workshop, lead by Lesley Birch tomorrow, the subject being 'colour'. I'm really looking forward to it, hopefully I'll write about it next week.
This week I have been pulling work together, getting ready for the first exhibition of the year at Burton Agnes Hall. We set up on Friday 29th April, so only two weeks to go.
I have had some lovely frames made by Paul at Blacktoft, I'm very pleased with them. Together with some I bought last year, my work is going to be in mid to pale wood frames this year, with either white or cream mounts. I have striven to get a more co-ordinated look, and this year I have finally managed it.
I spent the day matching paintings to frames and mounts, then making a list of the work, together with notes on what else still has to be done. I have twenty-two pieces of work altogether, sixteen of which are new this year.

This is one of the pieces that's almost but not quite finished. I still have a lot to do before set up day on the 29th April
