We have been taking it in turns to steward the exhibition. Several people have commented on my bright paintings (the challenge is to find someone brave enough to buy one), comparing them to those by Matthew Smith, an artist painting in the first half of last century. I looked him up and loved his work so I feel a little less dispirited. This is one of his paintings. He did all kinds of subjects, maybe I will try a portrait in this style one day if someone will sit for me.
