The Broadstone Art Society Spring Exhibition ended on 6th April and it has been a tremendous success for the Society and the benefiting charity. The standard of exhibited work was high and all exhibits were well received by the public. I was very pleased to take the Members Silver Plate Award for the best painting in a particular category which for this Exhibition was Seascape. The prize winning painting ” An exceptionally low tide, Poole Harbour” can be seen in my Recent Works Gallery.

I have just returned home from two months in New Zealand traveling throughout the North and South Islands.
