This is a new Colin Ruffell painting, seen here hanging ready for next week when we open our house as part of the Brighton Festival.
'Artists Open Houses' is a big thing. This year there are 230 venues offering the biggest free art show in the UK. Over a thousand exhibitors, and a guesstimate 250,000 visitors.
We hope to see you here at 182 Springfield Road, Brighton.
We are open from 11am to 6pm on the first four weekends in May.
Shyama has an exhibition at Pelham House in Lewes until the 8th of June. Last night we went to the Private View. As is often the case at PV's there was wine and nibbles and old friends that we hadn't seen for some time, so we all enjoyed ourselves immensely. It could be so easy to miss the art! But Shyama has done some smashing new paintings for this show, and they look really great in the hotel.
