keeping the post office busy

mixed media sketch . Beacon Hill, Charnwood, Leicestershire. Vivien Blackburn
This one is winging its way to the US to take part in an exhibition with friends - 2 English and 3 Americans. I had to stay with small images to fit in so decided on a series of work on trees from my plan chest (she says smugly ;>) - said plan chest still feeling shiny and new and lovely and I need to look in at it each time I pass the room! ). I don't often work small except for plein air sketches so it wasn't easy to find work to fit in 10x8 or 11x14 frames.
Today I had to post the moley exchange book, the FPP exchange book, these sketches and 2 cards to the US - eeek!!! it added up to rather a lot!
Keep your fingers crossed for sales so I don't get these back.

Vivien, I hope it doesn't sell so that I can re-mortgage my house and buy it all for myself. It's a really strong piece.

I think it will sell. Beautiful work. I would find it impossible to part with. :)

just a quick note, did you try and leave a comment earlier? I have published it under Paul's church, unless it was a comment about my typing errors which crept in!

vivien said...

yes Chris - I liked the series you are working on :>)

Yeah, me, too! If they don't want, I'll buy it! I'd love to have something of yours, Vivien, and this tree is just stunning.
