Patchings Festival 2017
Above: Winter Sun, Berry Head
Just got back from an overnight stay in Nottingham, from a visit to the 2017 Patchings Festival. I had a painting accepted for 'The Artist' category of the art competition.
Our first visit to Patchings. It was good to go around the stands as a tourist, 'off duty'. Still, I did get to finally meet Ingrid Lyon, the editor of Leisure Painter. I've been writing articles for LP since 2002, so it was good to say hello.
I also got to meet David Curtis, an artist whose work I've admired for many years (also bought a signed copy of his latest book).
