In late September for my grandson's birthday,
I organised a treasure hunt for him and his mum and dad, so he had to work for his birthday present.
Nathaniel is very pleased he will have this memento, and even more pleased to be able share it with you in our exhibition.
Both of these watercolours were painted a few years ago and typify autumn for me

I'm delighted to bring this 2nd showing of my work.
Like a lot of people I did art at school, then didn’t pick up a paintbrush again for years.
Then, when doing training for ministry (I’m a retired Methodist minister) I felt the need to do some art again. In the 40 years since then I’ve tried drawing, watercolour painting, experimenting, always learning.
But I’ve always struggled to find time, motivation and confidence to paint and draw and have come to realise that quite a lot of people have similar struggles.
So one of my skills (and delights) now is to try to guide and encourage beginners and would-be artists to ‘have a go’ – simply for enjoyment!
