Definitely on the case with my blog at the moment! Here I am, standing in front of my piece of work being exhibited in the SWA exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London.

It was a wonderful private view. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. Possibly the sunniest day of the year yet. The pv was absolutely packed with people and the work was generally quite fabulous - a wonderful mix of paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints. It's definitely an exhibition worth going to see.
Had a lovely chat with Anne Blankson-Hemans, my fellow compadre from the Big Painting Challenge. Anne is a member of the SWA and had 3 pieces of work on display. Fingers crossed we both sell.
We had a bit of a natter about the forthcoming Pintar Rapido challenge. I'm not totally sure about taking part in this one. I may have had enough of challenges for the time being, but it is a day to paint as opposed to a BBC 3 hours, so I may give it a go. It's outside though.......and architecture........not my best subjects. Let's see how I get on with my Lake District paintings, which I am hoping to start this weekend. Very excited and really looking forward to mixing up some oil paints for colour studies. Hmmm, I can smell the turps already!
