I’ve just added a couple of new bird and blossom paintings. The idea started with a painting for my nieces 16th birthday, she loves all things Japanese so there had to be Japanese blossom in it, i also included a gorgeous Japanese robin. From here it was then a friend of the family special 80th birthday, i chose to do another blossom painting to celebrate her special day. I loved painting the blossom pieces, so i then did a series of 3 featuring 3 different birds for my shop. The blackbird piece has already been reserved and will soon be flying off to California!! Lucky blackbird. This is the link to my painting page where you can see my blossom paintings in more detail, they are both painted on reclaimed Shropshire wood https://liztoole.co.uk/product-category/paintings/

Gosh, so much going on i’m actually struggling to keep up now all of the galleries are open again it almost feels like i’ve got 2 jobs! Its all good though and feeling incredibly positive.

I’m delivering new work to the brilliant Mostyn Gallery Llandudno for their Birds and The Bees exhibition which starts at the end of the month. They will be showing my full range of work, browser prints, framed prints and I’ll be showing my bird paintings on wood with them for the first time!

I have some new greeting card designs arriving very soon, i’ll update you as soon as they are listed in my shop.

I just took part in my first exhibition with real people attending, it was such a treat to meet and chat to visitors. It was part of the open gardens event for the lovely Oteley Hall in Ellesmere, such a brilliant day. I met so many lovely visitors, lots of lovely chats and to top it all off excellent sales. It was so successful there will be another one taking part on 22nd May, i’ll be there. If you are local and you missed the last one do pop along, the gardens are gorgeous and you can have a lovely chit chat with me and see my work, i should have some new bird paintings by then too!
