Six paintings entered into Shepherds Dene exhibition. I was only 2 weeks late as I had forgotten about the taking in day on the 4th October but the organiser Jenny Mathers kindly offered to take my late submission.
Painting of Blanchland done the previous evening using collage and acrylics. This was a replacement for a painting I had sold on Artfinder website.
Waiting in reception for Jenny as we were a little bit early so it gave us time to look at the exhibition and the Warden also gave us a guided tour of the house. Deerness Art Group members were at the retreat for three days painting and were busy in the upstairs Newell Room and in the ground floor Garden Room . The garden was a riot of autumnal colour.
View from the Terrace Room.
Later we drove to Hexham and had lunch in the Chinese restaurant-( the worst Chinese I have ever had ) and then a walk around the town.
