7 facts about me :
...I'm a Piscean ... I love water
..."less is more" .... one of my favorite quotes
... one of my favorite watercolour books I've read this year is "Painting from the Heart" by Barbara Nechis.
...it's been a wonderful experience this year to be invited as a parent and volunteer to both of my daughters schools to give "art lessons in English" - to 6/7 year olds and 12/13 year olds.
...one of the most exciting things to happen to me this year as a result of my exhibition was to be asked to teach watercolours here in Italy .
...Wish I could go back to UK more often ....it was a treat to see David Poxon's Watercolours at the Mall Galleries in November . "Pots" is an incredible painting .... the exhibition Discerning Eye was fascinating ...here is a link to read more. http://www.discerningeye.org/exhibition/gallery/gallery.php?filter=POXON%2C+David
I'd love to see this collective watercolour exhibition if we were in UK over Christmas .... " The Magic of Watercolour", an exhibition at Christmas , London . I've recently discovered Geoffrey Wynne's blog who is one of the artist exhibiting ...here's a link to Geoffrey's site , a few of his superb paintings and details of the exhibition. http://geoffreywynne.blogspot.com/2011/12/london-at-magic-of-watercolour_4236.html
...I've been enjoying designing Christmas Cards for the last couple of weeks.
