Hi everyone! I thought I’d dedicate this week’s blog post to my upcoming exhibition which I’m very excited about. It’s going to be held at the Dragonfly Café at Dinton Pastures Country Park from May 1st to June 31st. A trip to Dinton Pastures Country Park is a great day out for anyone who loves the great outdoors – as well as the Dragonfly Café there’s also a 9-hole golf course, the Hurst Golf Course, which is great for keen golfers. The park is very popular with wildlife enthusiasts, especially birdwatchers, as it is home to a wide variety of bird species.
I’m going to be displaying 16 acrylic paintings of beautiful scenes throughout the park. All of the paintings have been painted on paper and are all mounted and framed. I think Dinton Pastures Country Park is the perfect place for me to have an exhibition because I think it’s a beautiful place full of scenic spots, stunning landscapes and gorgeous views. I absolutely loved painting different scenes from throughout the park and can’t wait to share them with you!
I donate a percentage of all my sales to the Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust. The helicopter, also known as BOB, is based in Benson, Oxfordshire, which is a central location for the three different counties the helicopter covers. It is operated during daylight hours 365 days a year and had over 50 successful missions in February 2014. The trust doesn’t receive any government funding. It relies entirely on the public to contribute so the public can rely on it if they find themselves in a sticky situation.
I’m counting down the days, hours and minutes to the exhibition! As you can tell I’m very excited about it. I’m really looking forward to putting my work out there, getting some feedback and meeting lots of new people. I really hope the exhibition goes well and I hope you come, have a great day out at Dinton Pastures Country Park, and appreciate my paintings.
Hope to see you there!
