Glorious Colour

Its' August and the month that I promised myself a complete break because I knew this year was going to be really hectic. Now I have quiet time in my studio to reflect on the year that has passed and the new year I am facing.

I have loved all the workshops and art demonstrations and thoroughly enjoyed meeting so many fantastic new friends which is what happens on the sessions. And my exhibition work has been a journey that I have adored from the very first step and brushstrokes from the first to the most recent collection.

I am now really looking ahead to my watercolour course at Dedham Hall in September and my Watercolour Tour in USA  in October. 

I am in a group exhibition in Cardiff ,Wales, which opens in September and I have watercolour collections in the Wey Gallery in Godalming,Surrey. The Lyndhurst Gallery in the New Forest,Hampshire; Dogs in Art Gallery in Stockbridge and of  course The Frame Gallery in Odiham, Hampshire. These include a variety of subjects and each gallery has new work which I have  really loved creating.

Now I am going to indulge myself with working on new techniques, exciting new subjects and hope there is some sunshine in this pretty wet summer we have had in UK this year. But if the sun doesn't shine I will just have to paint my own glorious colour!

Glorious color indeed. Just gorgeous. I feel ashamed that I haven't written sooner to tell you "thanks" for producing a video we can view in the U.S. A friend and I have been watching it on Sunday afternoons and then painting. I've had your first book for a long time, since my dear friend Lin Frye, told me about you. And last week your fantastic new book arrived and I am in love with it -- but most especially the cat. I'm sorry to say that I bought this one from Amazon -- having to save my pennies after both a knee surgery and an unexpected ankle surgery as the result of a fall.

Your talent and unusual techniques are truly amazing and I wish you many happy hours in time at home developing all those new techniques!

Warm regards,
Lorraine Layne
