For the past two days I have been "artist in residence" in Gallery 150, Livery Street, Leamington Spa. It's done me a power of good too. I lack a lot of confidence with my paintings and the mere thought of performing in public was enough to give me the vapours. I did it though and enjoyed it, I liked talking to the people that came through the door and all that sort of stuff. I am back there now tomorrow too. Another thing working there has done is made me focus on the painting rather than going off and doing other things around the house at the same time. (Mind you my house does look very untidy and I have accrued about 4 hours of ironing). By the way, it's an egg.
