Having spent Sunday drilling and beading the glass pendants, I hot-footed it to London on the 7.58 train on Monday morning to deliver some work to the Royal Academy for the Summer Exhibition. I took these 2 paintings down so let`s hope at least one is selected!
Thanks to Phyllis at Briar Walk B&B for a welcoming and comfortable stay in her lovely house in Putney.
A highlight of my visit was seeing Tenby artist, Naomi Tydeman`s, paintings at the R.I. exhibition at the Mall Galleries. It was lovely to catch up with Naomi and see a bit of Pembrokeshire in the heart of London, and her work was definitely the best in the show!
It was great to catch up with some friends and to have a chance to see the fabulous Watercolour exhibition at Tate Britain. It is a mind blowing overview of watercolour from the 16th century to present day and contains some real gems.
I also saw the Susan Hiller show, which was a revelation in terms of how Hiller uses visual art conceptually to convey and evoke meaning – brilliant!
So, I returned with lots of inspiration and loaded with pigments from Cornelissens for making up some new glass enamels and working on some new pieces.
