He is Risen

In loving memory of Geoff Scott

Eternal rest grant unto him O Lord
And let perpetual light shine upon him
May he rest in peace

Hoo's a lucky girl then?

I'm delighted to say that I've had a couple of works accepted for next weekend's annual Luton Hoo Walled Garden Open Exhibition.   The theme of the exhibition is "The Garden and Beyond", and I took the opportunity to dust off three older works - Paula's Pansy, Red Tulips in a Blue Glass Vase and Acer Leaves VII, as well as some browser items and a few greetings cards.

Unfortunately Red Tulips didn't make the cut, which surprised me a little as it's one of my favourite paintings.  So perhaps I'll hang that one in my studio to remind me of the afternoon I spent trying to paint tulips from life!

More than a hundred artists are taking part in the exhibition, as well as  local schools, who always produce the most intriguing installations. If you are in the area it's well worth a visit, as is the Walled Garden itself - hope to see you there . . .
