PAMPER DAY

20"x 16" ACRYLIC. I saw this painting during a visit to Bolton Art Gallery. There was an exhibition by Bolton Art Circle members and this really caught my eye. The original painting was a million times better than this one of course, but I had a lot of fun creating this poor imitation. Not much chance of selling it except maybe to a beauty shop :-)

I saw this painting at the library too and you have done a really good job on it!! I think it was painted by George Potts who actually taught me in my very first lessons!!

Thanks Judith, that's very kind of you. I don't rate my copy very highly but I certainly did enjoy doing something so different! :-)

Our Own Art-Club!

Each Friday we go to the local Art-Club in Horwich. It's a thriving club with a broad range of people of all ages and skill-levels. Apart from the regular painting sessions, we have many professional artists visiting us to demonstrate their skills and to run workshops.

But sometimes, it's nice when just a few friends get together mid-week too, and so here we are in Simon's "studio", benefitting from the skill and experience of his father, Brian Waddington. It looks a bit cramped in there, but we were just huddled together to fit in the photo frame :-)



And you can drink beer in this club! :-)
