Falmouth Art Gallery where it is to be part of their British Impressionists exhibition this summer. If you are in Falmouth this summer go and see it.
I leave on Tuesday and having had a house full of visitors have left packing and planning until now. I am flying out on Wednesday and having not travelled from an airport for a good long time I was a little worried about the luggage allowance so... I got myself one of those handy luggage scales, threw all my art materials and some clothes into my bag and hoisted it up on the scales. I was horrified to see that it weighed in at 25kg, I am allowed 20kg. I spent ages taking things out, finding a lighter bag, deciding not to take gouache, ripping backs off sketchbooks, putting all of my clothes on at once until, peering closely at the numbers I realised that I had been reading pounds not kilogrammes! I need that holiday!
As a consequence of all of this activity you may have noticed that the plein air river paintings have been absent, I am hoping to do one today, Saturday, Sunday and possibly Monday but after that I shall not be here for the rest of June.
The project will resume, with a vengeance in July but I am hoping to post the products of my Provencal painting as I go. Au revoir and a bientot!
