Good day for good news

First came the news that one of the first paintings I produced since moving to Suffolk, “Here for the Spirit”, had sold at the annual Southwold Art Circle exhibition.

If you haven’t visited already, there’s some excellent work on show: it runs till 3 Sept 2018; see the Southwold Art Circle website for details.

Second, it was nice to learn that mine was one of the first cards to go at Mandell’s Gallery’s postcard sale, held to raise funds for painter and printmaker Sarah Cannell’s son, Henry.
