I am now back in France after a very enjoyable 2 week trip to the UK for my Winchester College on Canvas exhibition.
The final tally was 28 sales with a further half dozen requests for further paintings, which I am really pleased with.
I was particularly thrilled that many boys in the school took an active interest in the exhibition – and I even ended up giving a number of talks to classes.
It feels a bit odd now to be sitting in my studio surrounded by bare walls an wondering what to paint next.
On the way to the Channel Tunnel I heard on the radio that it was Cheltenham this week and I very nearly turned around as I would love to paint a major horse racing festival – and seeing the sunshine there yesterday I clearly should have done!
