These are my submissions from the past two challenges but you can find them and many others from other talented folk here: https://www.cliftonartsclub.co.uk/gallery.html

      Hi Jo, Hi Sarah-Jane, thank you for your kind comments.
      At last after this difficult period I can say that I shall be exhibiting just one painting along with my fellow artists in a thank you exhibition to those who regularily contributed to the Clifton Arts Lockdown and Weekly Challenges over the last 53 weeks.
      You probably already know, anyway a cautious start, but a possative step forward, hope you can pop in for a look.
      It’s Inside Out Exhibition held in the Victoria Methodist Church, 1 Whiteladies Road, Bristol BS8 1NU
      Sunday 16th May – Saturday 29th May 1130 – 1730.
      Kind regards,
