Delivered this painting to one of my best and most long standing and beloved friends (and patrons) yesterday @popkit Kate Helmer ; ‘Before India’ was her favourite when it showed at 2 Knoyle Road , @fivewaysartistsgroup trail ; it has since been exhibited in Cornwall and found its way back to me , I painted it in anticipation of an amazing trip to Mumbai and Goa visiting my daughter ; the colours and smells and fauna have never stopped inspiring me , very happy it’s going to reside with her and her kin in her beautiful home from now on ,I’ve got some perspective now , rather like it !

last night at the private view of Rod Harman’s wonderful exhibition ‘Skin Deep’ at the Blackshed Gallery, Russet Farm, Robertsbridge , TN32 5NG
I am thrilled to spend time with my former tutor, the irrepressible Rod Harman from Hastings school of Art and technology who’s encouragement, 36 years ago probably set me on the road to be a painter, he saw something in me I didn’t even recognise yet and I’m so grateful for his generous support and inspiring teaching ; so glad I went to this beautiful show, in the stunning space and setting . Thank you to Kenton Lowe the gallery owner for taking this photograph .

Painting in studio yesterday , starting with a dark colour for a change , to see what that brings , filmed by my daughter, I didn’t realise how much the rhythm of the music affected my mark making . Am starting to get ready for exhibiting at Art at Zerb’s open house ,188 Dyke Road , Brighton, BN1 in may 2019 as part of the Brighton festival #artistsopenhouses
Really enjoyed hanging pictures and seeing the work in the new environment today
