Come see my watercolours at a free exhibition from 1st May 2016. Todmorden Information Centre is open Monday to Saturday from 10.00am to 4.00pm and Sundays 10.45am to 2.30pm.
I am presenting my favourite subjects, which are flowers and local landscapes. I admire the curves of the hills above Portsmouth and Cornholme, with their changing colours through the seasons. In addition to those, an Irish and a Russian landscape will also feature.
The paintings are framed and are available to buy at affordable prices (£30-£40). Treat yourself or buy a special gift for a loved one.
Drop by a popular Todmorden cafe called Kava in Rochdale Rd and check out my latest watercolour exhibition. There are six paintings altogether, in the price range £50-£100.
I have done three new pieces for this exhibition: two flowers and a local landscape. The other two are landscapes I had painted earlier: one realist and one more abstract. The exhibition is on until 1 December.
Hurry and get a gift of a local watercolour painting for that special someone!
We were happy to play at World Vegan Day Gig organised by 3 Valley Veg*ns for two reasons: One, we got free delicious vegan dinner, and Two: it was the first time when Clare, our new flute player, joined us in performance.
Clare with her Native American Flute
You can see Clare’s short bio here. Clare plays classical flute, as well as two Native American flutes: one large made with Yew and another smaller made with Holly.
The magical sounds of all three weaved in perfectly into the drumming and vocals.
To honour World Vegan Day, 1 November, the date when the world’s first Vegan Society was founded in the UK in 1944, we included a Buddhist Precept “not to kill” into our Shamanic Intro.

Seven co-authors and I wrote eight stories about our relationships with our Fathers. Annie Hart gathered us all, physically in her place in Hebden Bridge and virtually online, to put together a book to honour that half of us – Fathers: fabulous, absent, distant and single parent ones.
How one Father survived a Japanese POW camp during WWII
How another Father battered the Mother of his eight kids
How a Father raised his Daughter on his own and then left for another continent
How a Father had only six conversations with his Daughter in all his life
How a Father considered his life a quiet despair
How a Father dealt with his European daughter converting to Islam
How a Father conceived his Daughter against all odds
How a Father ordered chips from his Daughter without recognising her
Drop by Kava Cafe in Halifax Rd, Todmorden (opposite Lidl). Not only do they serve exclusive vegetarian organic dishes and mind-blowing drinks, such as freshly-squeezed fruit juices and world teas and coffees. From 26 May to 23 June the lovely Svetlana and Dale (also accomplished musicians) let me use the wall of their neighbourly cafe to exhibit my watercolours.
Use this opportunity to buy my watercolours very reasonably priced from £20 to £30. They are all local landscapes and flowers that grow in local parks and in the streets of Todmorden.
Add some colour to your home or office, let the summer in!
