“It’s the simple things” my Aunt said.

“It’s the simple things” my Aunt said.

“It’s the simple things” my Aunt said. The simple things we can enjoy again that we have missed. Meeting new people for instance, and seeing new things in real life not on a screen. I do love the things we have been able to do like walk on the seafront. Even cloudy mornings offer up their beauty. I just popped this “After Sunrise” painting into a frame and hung it in my new gallery space. You can see it in person on Saturday 22nd May 10.30 to 3.30. Someone has already booked 3-3.30. But any other time is available. If...

Turner Yellow Sky With Red Sun, Deal Pier

Turner Yellow Sky With Red Sun, Deal Pier

The first time I saw Turners watercolours was at the British Museum in 1982. My grandparents had emigrated to Australia from Margate, where they had an antique store. My grandmother loved Turner's watercolours of Margate and often spoke of them when I was a teenager.

As a student I would paint in sketchbooks with watercolours, never leaving home without my small...
