I really enjoy working on commissions. They take me out of my comfort zone a little as far as colour and subject matter are concerned……which is great as i learn from the experience. It is also of course lovely getting feedback and knowing that my paintings really resonate with someone.

Here’s a few i’ve done lately…..

…only 52 days away!!…yikes!

I’m planning on having a mixture of large and smaller works, along with prints, cushions, cards etc.

There will also be bargins to be had…… ūüôā

It’s always been an enjoyable experience, meeting the public, chatting about my artwork…although a tad stressful leading up to the event. Apart from¬† all the artwork to organise my house has to be unusually spick and span..all Peppa Pig toys, footballs, dolls and empty wine bottles will be removed!
