This month started well with the sale of a large painting to a lady in Torquay, thanks to Julie at Artizan for her help. I had a few items in the English Riviera Summer Open Exhibition and this one sold. I have a partner piece that I am working on and it will be available later in the year. Julie was also able to sell some of my cards, so thanks again. I am submitting works for the Winter Exhibition and have yet to hear which ones have been accepted, but will update the blog with news when I have it.

I attended a genius workshop on photography today at the Apple Store in Exeter, as I am updating my iPhone to a better camera facility. Its amazing how much there is to learn and re-learn when you have an expert who can lend their knowledge. The phone won’t arrive until later in October, so I can wait to play with it.  

With regards to my cards, they are all original pieces of work in blank trifold card stock and include envelopes. They are priced at £3.50 each for the small size (square window) and £4.00 for the larger sized (oval window).  Contact me if you would like to know more or would like to purchase any. I can send samples for your perusal.

Hi folks, in my last post I mentioned that I had submitted works to the Bruton Art Society Annual Exhibition and that I would let you know more details when I have them, so here it is. 

The poster among the images above, give the dates and times etc, there is no charge for entry. This is a new venture for me, as I haven’t entered for this exhibition before. It’s only on for a short time - a week - so you will have to get your skates on if you want to have a look. I understand that there will be an online exhibition as well, so hop along to the website if you can’t get there in person.

The three images with the poster, are the pieces that have been selected and until now only shown on my website. I also have five unframed paintings in the browser and fifteen cards of small original images, all for sale. 

If you get a chance to have a look either virtually or in person, do let me know your thoughts. 

Today 31st July 2021

We are at the end of July, it’s been a very busy month for the Smy household. In late June my brother-in-law died very suddenly and that was a great shock. There has been lots to deal with as a result, so I’m sorry not to catch up with you all before now. 

On a lighter note, we had our first holiday for nearly 2 years, with all the family in West Wales. A very happy time after such sadness.

Back to the art, though. I have work in Torquay at the moment, three paintings, as well as three unframed in the browser and several cards - all for sale. These can all be seen at Artizan Gallery in Fleet Walk Torquay, see poster below.

The first three are the framed pieces. 

After the Storm is a large work and shows well in a white mount with a white wood frame, under glass.

Next month I am handing in works to the Bruton Art Society and will give you more information when I have it.
