Warwickshire open studios

Like many events in 2020 Warwickshire open studios have been cancelled due to covid 19.
By now my exhibition would be in situ, so I thought I would share some of the pieces of work I’d have on display

Unusual times

It is unusal times with a virus that is keeping us in lock down. Many events have been cancelled or postponed including my own.
On the positive I am able to work in my studio and hopefully when life resumes I will have so new work to show.

I do want to share a piece of music composed by http://www.duotonemusic.com A piece inspired by my painting now called ‘Slow Wave,’ after Duotone’s composition.
