Delighted to have been invited to exhibit some new paintings with the Corte Real Gallery in the Algarve in Portugal. The gallery contacted me at the beginning of the year saying how much they liked my work and that it was ‘those endless skies that does it for us’ These large artworks measure 104 x 104 cm square and were inspired by my recent walks along the stunning North Norfolk coast. I really enjoyed creating these pieces and just ordered some extra blue paint!
