Festivals and Frames

Such a good weekend in Devon - Home Festival at dartington, first small festival I've been to and I'm hooked.

Managed to get a day at the coast at Bigbury on Sunday, such gorgeous shape in the headland and the mica cliffs make for beautiful light.

Dropped my newly framed seascapes off at the Brownston Gallery in Modbury. http://thebrownstongallery.co.uk

Its a great gallery space, with a lovely terrace coffee shop out the back and some beautiful art - especially love the work of Kathy Ramsay-Carr. http://thebrownstongallery.co.uk/gallery/index.php?artists_id=27

I've framed the work differently - moved away from white frames to chunkier bare wood frames, and I'm very happy with the finished effect. Frames make such a difference! They present the painting with finality and pride - and make the final step of independence from the artist. Always excited by the whole thing.

Got a link to my site on the http://www.catmosecollege.com/?gallery=gallery_exhibitions&left=gallery site now - promoting the Coast exhibition for July. Its brilliant to be contributing to a collection of work specifically concerning a love of the sea. Feel I've somehow 'made it', whatever 'it' is. :)
