Catching Up

It’s fair to say that it has been a busy couple of weeks since we returned to Poland after the end of the exhibition.  Thanks to everyone who came along on the last day, it was nice to meet you all.

In the next few days I’ll bring the website up to date with sales and new paintings etc.  The main news is that two originals have sold;  The large Augsburg Raid canvas and the smaller Spitfire Dawn canvas.

I’m now returning to England again for the weekend with Kasia to attend a family funeral.  Hopefully next week I can start painting again!

Eight veterans to attend our last Sunday

We are delighted to confirm that we’ve now got eight RAF veterans lined up to attend the last Sunday of the exhibition (5th October).  So if you haven’t been able to see the show yet, why not join us for the last day, apparently there will be refreshments and free jelly babies again!   I’ll be there from around 1.30pm and taking offers on any original paintings that haven’t yet sold, so it’ll be a good chance to negotiate a bargain…

The list of attendees is as follows;
