I sat down to read my copy of 'Artists & Illustrators' magazine and on page 62 got a lovely surprise to see my painting of Finn. I hope people will have a look at my website and also see the other beautiful dogs needing homes at www.southernlurcherrescue.org.uk

Have You Herd?

Cow lovers are invited to the launch of the 'Sussex Farmlife Calendar 2010' at the Arts Hut Gallery, Herstmonceux on Saturday 19th September.

Designed by the Electric Pencil Company the calendar features a fascinating glimpse into day-to-day life at Court Lodge Farm, with generous space for you to record those all-important events throughout next year. On Saturday 19th September between 11am ­ 2pm you can meet the Hardings to discover more about Court Lodge Farm and their renowned organic products with yogurt smoothie tasting and sampling of their Echinacea tincture. In addition to the Calendars, which at £8.95 make perfect presents, Arts Hut will exhibit a selection of bovine paintings, prints and cards. For more information please call: 01323 831831

Cricketing Lane Herstmonceux

This is the first in my new series of 12 inch square landscapes painted in and around Herstmonceux. Coopers Croft is the hamlet just outside the village, which includes the Truggery, Garden Centre and the very friendly B&B Candlelit Cottage. This field off Cricketing Lane had just been harvested, leaving spikey debris and exposing hard pink earth.

Veronica Van Eijk

With Lewes Artwave Festival running until Sept 14th, this weekend the Hailsham Arts Festival also burst into life. We couldn't resist the black and white cow paintings and prints by Veronica Van Eijk. Pictured Veronica, Mike, Mr PWP, Finn and Bea (who got fed sausages!) inside The Barn Studio, Longleys Farmhouse, Harebeating Lane, Hailsham. As you can see there is a milking parlour of cows to choose from, whilst enjoying tea and cake. Upstairs is the workshop where Veronica teaches watercolours. To find out more see her link on the right.
Also exhibiting are Val Wainwright, with invigorating dancers, still life and life size sunflowers and Christine Jenkinson with delicious portraits of her English Pointer.
If you haven't visited an Open Studio before, this is a great example. Packed with fascinations, beautifully presented work and enthusiastic artists on hand to talk to you. Why not visit next weekend, they are open Sat 12th and Sun 13th 11am - 4.30pm.
