This is my first posting that includes an image.
It shows my display of watercolours and prints at The Dragonfly House, during the May Brighton Festival of Open Houses. I had a very good year, thanks to Angie putting me in a prime spot. Last year I was on the stairs and everyone walked past. It’s a selection of original watercolours (all sold bar one), screenprints and linocuts (all printed at BIP). Yes, I do love Art Deco, and yes they are meant to have a 1930s feel. The most popular print was of Shoreham Airport, mainly I think because people that bought have an attachment to the place. The edition is all sold out now, there will be no more – and no, I won’t be producing a giclée.
I am Brighton’s laziest artist, only averaging one print a year – this year’s is of Saltdean Lido. My watercolour of ‘The lost villas of London Road’, done for the exhibition at the Co-op, was bought by Mrs Brooke of Brooke Travel (a shop depicted in the painting) – what’s the chances of that happening?
