Not able to work in studio at the moment due to foot operation!


It is going to be December tomorrow, eek, somewhat scary how life is whizzing by, even when I have been laid up due to a foot reconstruction operation on 10th October.   Six weeks no weight bearing, that has been quite tough, but the good news is that I can now do partial weight bearing with my storm trooper boot on and everything is progressing nicely, I hope to be able to go for a swim in a couple of weeks.

So, art wise, obviously I have not been able to get into the studio for a while, although I have been managing to do some collage and sketchbook stuff, including an online concertina sketchbook course by Karen Stamper – she is amazing, and her online courses are the best I have come across for visual simplicity and fun.
In September with Erica Shipley and three, 3D artists  (sculpture, ceramics and glass) we had a wonderful week long exhibition in “The Old Fire Station Gallery” in Henley-on-Thames, – I have hopefully added a link to my homemade video (click here) of the exhibition for anyone who would like to see it.  And then just before my operation I managed to squeeze in a week down in Cornwall (Porthleven) doing a “Freedom in Painting” course with Ashley Hanson (always a brilliant tutor) and so fantastic to be down in Cornwall.
Something else that my be of interest is that I did an interview about myself and my art for Instagram / You Tube channel called ArtByArtist anyway link to video (click here) attached, slightly weird as I was sent the questions by email, so I have to ask and answer the questions, also, sorry about the ads at the beginning I have no idea how to delete them, way beyond my level of video skills at the moment.
Other news is that I have two large paintings going in to the AKA Gallery in Cambridge next week for their winter exhibition (images below) and I had a picture in the Ing Discerning Eye exhibition in the Mall Galleries in London, so all in all even with the foot, pretty good.

Anyway, wishing you all a wonderful Xmas and hope that 2024     is a fantastic year for you  ~ Antonia
