Quince Jelly part 2

Amazing! I turned all my quinces into Quince Jelly, which is now on sale at the top notch greengrocer Hallam‘s on Beeston High Street. They sold half the stock last weekend!

It is also featuring on the cheeseboard in renowned vegetarian cafe Café Roya.

A bit of an adventure – well worth a bit of effort!

Customers are in for a treat – I remember when I first tasted it! A unique experience.

 

 

Pictures at an Exhibition

I am SO delighted to have two pictures in the annual University exhibition this year.

Djanogly 2

I have been visiting this exhibition for years and never dreamt I would see my work there until recently. I am eligible to apply being an ex employee.

The work is judged anonymously so I am super proud to have been chosen.

Another little jump in my confidence as an artist!

Utterly bespoke paper roses order

Here’s a lovely idea from one of my customers…

Themed roses (gold and navy for a uniformed wedding), displayed in pots covered in sheet music to be played at the ceremony.

I don’t think you can get much more bespoke than that!

 

Painting Grove Avenue

I am obsessed with this view of my road, from the middle – often seen during walks.

The overhanging trees, the tunnel vision, the old garage in the foreground, a tram rumbling past at the end.

I have tried many times to recreate with drawing and painting.

Here’s the latest attempt, a work in progress, unfinished to date.

And another picture of this beautiful view.
