Monday - I was able to paint in Freddy's chest and then start on Holly's nose, being careful to get her markings just right. I would normally have managed more but had the launch of my latest exhibition at lunch time which I was more nervous about than my own wedding! I've been part of big exhibitions before but this time it was just me and one other artist Elizabeth Armstrong and we had the Gloucestershire Echo, Cotswold Life and Cotswold Style there to take photos for features about the exhibition. My nerves weren't helped by the fact that I was driving and couldn't take advantage of the free champagne! This exhibition is being held at the Spice Lodge in Cheltenham from 3 March until 19 April and is open to the public.
