On 16th July ( a special day in my family) my largest painting yet, 'Standing Proud' was displayed at the Arlington Arts show. Just two weeks later it has been sold to someone local who 'fell in love with it' when she saw it on Facebook. It was lovely to meet her yesterday and to see how her face lit up with pleasure when she actually saw the real painting. Thank you, Claire!

I have quite a few ideas for more paintings of this size. Watch this space but please be patient as they won't appear overnight!

Here is 'Standing Proud' in its new home in Claire's lounge!
