It’s coming around again...my annual solo exhibition as part of the Oxfordshire Artweeks Festival begins on the 10th May. I have over 30 new watercolours and a large selection of the mini oil paintings from the cotswoldsketchbook series of paintings.

The exhibition is again in Swalciffe Village Hall in a beautiful part of North Oxfordshire, and as well as two other exhibitions in the village there are many local attractions including Whichford Pottery, Broughton Castle, Upton House & Gardens and many local pubs serving good quality food.

A bend in the road (£99)


Another painting that has been posted before but this shows how it would look in a wide frame. It's a lane near where I live here in France just as the morning sunlight was casting across the road lighting up the foliage on the far side. 

Painting is sold without the frame

Springtime in the Orchard (£99)

A lovely apple orchard back in the UK, it seems although I live in a beautiful part of rural France I paint a lot of English subjects, maybe I should move back!

Blue Skies in Taddy


The road to Banbury going through Tadmarton in North Oxfordshire, I like the higgldy piggldy (!) arrangement of the buildings in this view and the red brick building nestling amongst the honey coloured Hornton stone. The frame is a suggestion only, the painting is made on linen canvas board ready to be framed. 6 x 8 inches.
