I was going to try a few new shows and not put my art in a few other venues. Sadly, the two shows in Little Britain and Picton have been cancelled. I'm hoping that the Victoria County Studio Tour at the end of September, and the Marshland Centre in Lakefield in November will go ahead. When we are able to see art again and life is a little back to normal, if you can afford [...]
