Great eventing mixing it with the hoi polloi – Dukes & dames etc. last night at Hampton Court Palace for an event celebrating the ‘Arcadian Thames’. Richard and Doug http://www.richarddouglasproductions.co.uk/ had used my paintings of the river in a video that played behind the performance and speakers (Sir Trevor Mac D. Dame Eileen Atkins, Sir David Attenborough etc.) used to trace the history or the Thames with Eel Pie Island right at the centre of Arcadian London. Real thrill to hear the appreciative comments anonymously but best of all to see the old palace at dusk and be able to wander around without any tourists. It really is a very spooky place with creaky floors and gargoyles looking down from the gloom. Loved it!

Event in support of the Thames Landscape Strategy: http://thames-landscape-strategy.org.uk/

The New Georgians exhibition                   Orleans House Gallery                           3 May – 27 July 2014

I have a ‘rose’ painting entitled ‘Memories’ on show in this exhibition, see below:

The New Georgians celebrates the tercentenary of the Hanoverian accession. This exhibition, part of the Richmond upon Thames Georgians Festival, commemorates this historical event through a display exploring the life and local links of Queen Caroline of Ansbach (1683-1737), wife of King George II. Caroline lavishly dined in the Octagon Room on a visit here in 1729. Her husband’s mistress, Henrietta Howard, lived at the nearby Marble Hill House.
