Two of my paintings and one of Ele’s sold at the RUH exhibition which is a nice surprise and has the feel-good factor of knowing that the commission goes into the Art at the Heart hospital fund. We collected the rest of the Combe Down artists’ paintings yesterday. The hospital was very hot, very busy and slightly manically full of artists from all five groups trying to find and pack their paintings. But at least none of ours went astray! It is a lovely exhibition and it is really good that patients, visitors and staff stop to look at the paintings and even buy them. These are the two paintings; I am almost sorry to see them go. Maybe it's time to stop painting blobs and go back to fruit and imagined corners of Tuscany.
