Me, with the paintings from my feature in the June issue of the Artist Magazine
The portrait from my new book "Atmospheric Watercolours" is behind me. This is the painting from my book that received particularly glowing reviews last week.
Yesterday there was great excitement as my long awaited solo exhibition at the Wey Gallery in Godalming, Surrey opened with a Private Preview to showcase my new collection and the display was absolutely full of vibrant colour.
Apart from the sheep paintings from my latest feature in The Artist Magazine my new abstracts were on show for the first time. It was wonderful to recieve the feedback on this new direction in style.

You can also see the carnations from my new DVD "Watercolour Passion" in the background.
And the main stars of the show?
My horse racing collection as always. They get bigger each time I show and definitely more emotional as I become so involved with each new piece.

It is a very colourful exhibition with surprises around each corner. To have everyone tell me my work was stunning and watch faces as my art was viewed was a wonderful feeling. One visitor met me at the Mall Galleries in London last week when I was showing at the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Exhibition 2012 and fell in love with the hare there, so visited this show to see what else I painted.
The exhibition runs until 14th June 2012.
If you do vist there is sometimes a special little guest, a very amazing art critic by the name of Bertie.
I think he could very well be the subject of my next painting!
