September - art windows

This time of year I always exhibit a painting with the Market Harborough Artist Cluster. This year I have been given the shop window of the 'Little big bra shop.'

I had thought about doing a lady in her underwear, but decided against it. The title of this painting is 'Warrior,' not just because she is posing in the 'Warrior yoga pose, and she is doing so whilst heavily pregnant'  but more importantly it is my statement about today's women.

Thunder flies

I had to abandon the plein air painting summer this year. There were so many thunder flies that met their doom by attacking my paintings.  Now autumn has arrived I am beginning to think about plein air painting again, I love being out doors interacting directly with the environment.

A selection of plein air paintings exhibited this summer at Lamport Hall.
