Artist's Open House

Artist Anna Wilson-Patterson is hosting an exhibition of contemporary paintings and prints at her home in Fairlight village.

Walking her elegant greyhounds daily, at dawn and dusk, along the windswept cliff top paths of Hastings Country Park, Anna has been inspired by gorse silhouettes, channel views and local wildlife.

She says: “My paintings are exhibited in local galleries throughout the year, so this is an opportunity for people to meet me face-to-face. Visitors can see my sketchbooks, paints and tools and I am happy to talk about my work. I find their observations refreshing and helpful”.

“We moved to Fairlight village earlier this year and I started recording everyday moments; a fox trotting up the garden path, rabbits munching the lawn and birds at the bird bath. In addition to my larger seascapes, these smaller paintings, prints and drawings form a visual diary of this year.”

Also for sale are Anna’s paintings, prints and greeting cards of huts and hounds at Winchelsea Beach, Hastings, Rye Harbour and Dungeness.

Anna’s exhibition is part of the regional South East Open Studios event, encouraging the public to meet artists and experience their creative process at first hand.

Former Glory

As we thought the sheds and garden are full of treasure.
Mr PWP re assembled the bird bath and banged in the original sign.
No one appears to know why it is called Spark Cottage...

The Orchard

I am pottering and contemplating acid soil.

The rabbits in our garden are huge and carry on with their busy lives, when you approach them.
On our first morning I opened the curtains to find an enormous rabbit enjoying breakfast.

Blue Lagoon

The kitchen will at some future point be moved.
In the meantime it has been painted in 'Blue Lagoon' by Dulux.

I predict February will be spent painting and decorating, punctuated by walks staring at the horizon.
The shelves in the snug were brown, walls pink and for a fresh start all will be white...
The hounds love the carpet.
