This is an exciting time for me, I am opening my home for the first time in Cheltenham ,Gloucestershire. England, exhibiting the paintings that I have done since we moved into our house here.
I hardly had any paintings left after a near sell out at my last exhibition in Johannesburg, South Africa.
I was left with about seven paintings out of the sixty four that I exhibited. Near sell out-ummm  well SELL OUT , seems more apt as  the walls were empty. The paintings literally grew legs and walked out. That was a pretty amazing feeling. The few that were left weren't ready to leave me and were carefully wrapped and accompanied me to England where our new countrymen here will have the opportunity to purchase them..
The container arrived on the 7th March 2011, and the next few weeks I spent unpacking all my beloved "things" including my paints and brushes. I just couldn't wait to paint. I flung myself into a frenzy of creativity, the result of which I will be exhibiting next week. 4th-12th JUNE 2011.
If you have any family or friends that live near me in England please extend an invitation to them, they will be most welcome.

The Winds of Change

Why am I feeling so restless?  The wind is a blowin' here in Cheltenham and I have a feeling something is about to happen or change. The winds of change.....aha!
Of course I have to mention the weather that is what everybody does here. The weather is of paramount importance in England. See my previous post about the seasons where I was so inspired , I painted a body of work called  Impressions.   
We have been sitting in a bit of a void lately but I feel this is about to change. I feel it in my bones literally ( I am aching all over these days).
 I am about to launch a new business based on my old one.. and that is MY ART.

I am about to open an ETSY shop, AND a Folksy shop, where I can sell my work online.
I plan to sell my original PAINTINGS, PRINTS and CARDS for starters.
I'm not quite ready yet but SOOOOON.
I've been running around madly finding printers to print cards and giclée prints of my paintings.
I have just finished the series of the Zodiac Goddesses with which I would like to start.
Here is just  a taste - 'VIRGO' of course...c'est moi.
What is a giclee print you may ask, well the word “giclée,” as a fine art term which was  derived from the French verb "gicler" meaning "to squirt" and used in the fine art industry to describe prints where no screen or other mechanical devices are used and therefore there is no visible dot screen pattern, the ink is "squirted or jetted" onto a fine quality artist paper. The image has all the tonalities and hues of the original painting.They are not mass produced and use fade-resistant, archival inks.  And the best of all is that are affordable. I've just had a sample printed and it is outstanding . The colour reproduction is perfect!!!
SO hold on and watch this space for more.
