I am so pleased to have my work exhibited alongside so many talented artists and makers this week at Sullington Manor Farm, West Sussex, it’s a beautiful location set in divine country side with a very good cafe in site – open 10.00-16.00 every day until 23rd October
This couple came to see my work in a gallery last year, they had been following my work and seen a couple of my paintings in a friends home and were so appreciative, and resonated with a lot of my work, but they couldn’t find, or decide on ‘the one’ at that time – I remember saying, ‘Maybe I just haven’t painted it yet’, and this was right.
￼I knew, or had an inkling, as this painting emerged, that it may well be the one they decided to have.
It looks fantastic in their totally chic home. Which is a mixture of sleek contemporary lines, with amazing vintage finds and a very specific clear colour palette try that works with this pretty bold and raw painting –
Rapeseed Field – in Darkness
I am still resting and processing the amazing madness of May – the month that is the most intense for artists in Brighton and Hove Uk.
It sometimes feels like a crazy helter-skelter of deadlines, followed by quietness but mostly I am so proud and happy from all the plans that came to fruition, the connections made and the new friends collectors supporters who flowed towards me, and the amazing artists I exhibited with – and the capacity for open minded appreciation of the Humans who made the effort to visit us in three different venues.
And the people who have come since to the studio to see the work; something I really enjoy – contact me firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a visit
– I will be there both afternoons 2-5.30pm – 21 Montpelier Crescent, Brighton BN1 3JJ

Painting changed me, instead of feeling a helpless muddle, inadequate in any given situation, doomed to be a misfit, an urgent purpose gave me direction.
Using paint as a medium of transport, as it were, I found a way to cast out my inner confusion. The untidiness inside me was tidied up in my painting.
Since that day I have been impelled either to paint or write, if I stop for a period of a week, I get tangled up again. To explain my compulsion in another way: life to me is a muddle, and my way of making a harmonious pattern from the muddle, is to invent order in my work.
The pattern must be remade every day if I am to keep my spirit calm and serene.
And just letting you know my Instagram account kate_scott_paintings is now safely back with me – apologies again to anybody who received DM messages up until 23rd March – I am very grateful to say all is now well. I am having a slower paced week before moving on to last few weeks of planning for the Artists Open Houses in May.
