Feel so pleased that this painting has been selected for the "Inheritance" exhibition at Norwich Castle Museum next Spring.
The painting has been on and off the easel over the last three or four years.
It was also pre-selected for the Threadneedle Open at the Mall Galleries in London this year, but didn't get through 2nd selection to get hung on the walls.
Being the artist I am on the rocking horse and the biggest of course, really Sue is the eldest, then Frank, me then Ruth with Deb last.
The location is down the yard at the end of a sloping drive by the side of our childhood home a 3 storey Victorian house in Caterham Surrey. Just beyond the wire fence of the yard was the rail track, with a wooden signal box opposite. We weren't supposed to play in the yard - but we did when we could get away with it. A small pear tree had stomach achingly hard pears, in the painting the budgies mum bred from 2 that Frank brought home one day - Bebe & Bobo are perched in its branches.
There are lots of references in the painting, including a list of the most popular songs of the time written into the wood of the rocking horse's rockers. So if you are curious about anything you see -
get in contact.
Colin Millington makes amazing pictures about the sea using wool. They are like the naive paintings sailors make of their lives and ships, but softer and more seductive.Colin lives in North Norfolk and his work has been on show at Paffron & Scott, in Melton Constable North Norfolk, and featured in one of the glossy interior and lifestyle magazines. Luke has been a long time admirer of Colin's work. The show finishes this weekend so be sharp if you want to enjoy the visual...
This is the 4th Fleet Foxes track I have developed as a collage, the lyrics are dreamily surreal. The whole CD carries echoes of times past, I love this particular track, "Tiger Mountain Peasant Song" but the whole CD is is good. I have put a link to it below so you can have a listen.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRfBqoGVFXcNorfolk skies have been wonderful this Summer, lots of fabulous billowing clouds blown by coastal winds; the colour palette of the North Norfolk landscape is...

Jackie's peonies and my Matisse copy
Much to my surprise, I will be represented at the Tunbridge Wells International Art Fair later this month.
Some of my prints and at least one original painting will be at the fair thanks to Neal Scrase.
I contacted Neal about prints of my work to sell on my website and his reply was so informative and helpful. I knew that he was the person I wanted to produce my prints. Neal said he would like to take some of my prints to the fair plus one original, and if there is space, he will take more, so I am more than a little delighted.
Neal's own work can be seen here :-

White Winter Hymnal. mixed media collage This one was a bit of a struggle because I didn't want to make it too literal.There are several references to the Fleet Foxes track "White Winter Hymnal" so go and have a listen - if you don't already know it. link to it hereI'll most likely start work on Oliver James next or Tiger Mountain Peasant Song., it is so hard to decide between these two.I like collage, it's restrictions are interesting and can send you down unexpected paths to...
