Mangrove Bay I, II, III


And here's the last three little ones for Dockyard... these are pretty small, about 12 inches square each (small for me, anyway!). Going to have a busy day tomorrow, packing to go home, taking these in, and dancing at the exhibition opening for 'Traditions' at Hamilton City Hall.

These were painted from the bridge just over from Mangrove Bay going towards Dockyard.

Gallery 400



These are new paintings - for Gallery 400 to be held at the City Hall exhibition space in Hamilton, celebrating 400 years of settlement in Bermuda, and for the Members Spring Show at the art centre at Dockyard (one each!)

They are something new for me - I've never painted landscape with this much detail before, usually I just focus on the skyline in silhouette. Can't make up my mind what I think! The one looks a bit like a scene from the Legend of Sleepy Hollow... Either way, one shows Flatts as you look across the inlet towards the aquarium, the other is the tree on Marsh Folly road. Both imagined as they would look during a midnight gale, of course!

Going home for two weeks soon! Can't wait to see South Africa again! I miss the mountains (and family obviously) so much!! Stopping off in New York to see 'Wicked' on Broadway...very exciting!
