Stafford Exhibition

I was approached by a fantastic looking gallery in Stafford not that long ago to exhibit in July at their Country Life exhibition. What a fantastic opportunity. Up until now my exhibitions have not ventured past the M4/M5 junction, so this is new territory.

Trouble is I only have one original to exhibit - not much of an exhibition - so I'm on painting overdrive.
I met these guys by chance when I was dawdling back from nursery with my 2 year old hoping she would snooze in the back of the car. It was one of those glorious sunny spring days where the light is fresh. I stopped by the yard gate for ages trying to get the cows accustomed to my presence but every time I moved a muscle they all panicked and backed off. Eventually these three decided their curiosity had got the better of them and came and nosed at me at a safe distance.

I like the way my current painting is working out. I'm using more bold colours on a vivid ultramarine background. I have a bit more work to do to them all, especially the cow on the right. Just need to think of some names then...
