This week sees full scale preparations for getting paintings ready for the annual event - The Fiveways Brighton Open House. Based near Fiveways in Brighton (just up from Preston Park) Fiveways Artists group are part of the bigger Brighton Open House event as well as the Brighton Festival.
For the past 17 years now I have been a guest artist at Frances Doherty's house (The Ceramic Gardner) and we love each year, welcoming and chatting to people about our artwork.
This year looks to be a fabulous one with some large scale sculpture to see in the front gardens - a joint collaboration by Frances and Alan Williams, leading up to 31 Havelock Road. Today the work was photographed in our garden and it looks amazing. In total there are six very diverse artists to come and view.
I will also be showing my new paintings, both framed originals and canvases together with the large painting which I do every year for the open house, this one is titled the 'Gin Party' and photo is coming this week.
