My Exhibition at The Mine Gallery in Carshalton.


My latest exhibition is in the Mine Gallery in Carshalton. It is a wonderful space and l am also going to be exhibiting there for their Christmas Show, l hope! This my "Feathers" image in one of the double windows of the gallery.

I have a wonderful space in the gallery, almost like my own seperate gallery! I love the church pew which is in "my" space.

 Here are some of the images l am exhibiting. The first one is one of my favorites ...Noah's Ark. I have been asked so many times if l have a print of this image, so l have decided to see how much it would cost.

 This one of my new painting...meet Mr. Whale.

This next image is of the wall hanging " Fish", which l sold on Friday night and since then l have sold 2 more on commission! I am so thrilled...she says jumping up and down!!!Ha!  One commission is for  the wonderful lady that owns Calladoodles, an amazing gift shop in Carshalton and the other is going overseas for a ladies French daughter-in-law. Oh and l also sold a card today..life is looking up!
The next wall hanging is one of two large ones l am exhibiting in this exhibition.  I have had some really good feedback about them.


The last image of my work is of a piece of mending l have just completed. I ripped my blouse, so l embroidered a pieced of felted wool blanket last night and hey presto...a new blouse. Which l have to say, got some great comments this morning. Infact l have some ideas about "patches" at the moment ..shh..still working on the idea!
 

 On the way home l saw this amazing rusted cross, outside the St. John's Ambulance Brigade station. Oh that would be so lovely to rust with. Just think what that would look like on a piece of cloth....sigh!!

what a beautiful grouping of your work... I really love the squares stitched together - each a little piece on its own, and then together, something even more.

I obviously have great taste in art Lynda, such good news that others are also buying your fabulous pieces! Sounds as though you are going to be very busy over the next couple of months.

Stunning work, fabrics, colours and needlework too, if I'm not wrong.
I think it's a good idea to make prints of some of them. You do also photograph a lot, and your own singed prints must be worth buying.
I like the way your woks are arranged around that church bench. Like stained glass work by an altar.

thank you:). I have been thinking of doing some prints from my photo's of my work for a while. Glad you like my work. And l like the idea of stain glass around the church bench..lovely thoughxxthank youx

Lynda I am SO INSPIRED by the wall hangings,although i would not have the patience for the hand stitching.And I must show my Father the silk paintings as he tried it at the hospice and he wants to do more.I wish I had known about the olive leaves as mine which is in a pot shed every single one last winter. By the way thank you so much for continuing comments on my blog.

Wonderful work, Lynda, and congrats on the sale and commissions! Re: that lovely rusted star, see if you can "borrow" it in situ for a few days...wrap vinegar/water soaked fabric around the star, cover it all with plastic, and leave for a few days!

Thanks for visiting my blog Lynda - I'm waving back from Gloucestershire! I love your gallery corner with the church pew, and especially your wall hangings. What a great solution to a torn blouse - you could be starting a fashion. I have visions of textile artists draping bits of fabric over that rusty iron cross, to dye them!

YAY .......go Lynda ......looks stunning what a fantastic space and your hangings are superb ....x

Oh how VERY exciting...brilliant showcase of your wonderful artwork Lynda!

I think greeting cards of what you create IS a very good idea...then an admirer who does not have the cash for a larger piece can have the choice of something they can afford.

your patch is wonderful ... I can just see packaged patches that you created in random sizes and each design unique hanging on a rack for sale...in your spare time of course :)

very happy for your continued success in living your passion and following your heART!

Your exhibition looks wonderful so vibrant and inviting.
I've had a good read of a lot of posts and see you lived in the Bahamas. How amazing. I've never done anything remotely exotic. I love looking at your London pictures too.
Thank you for your lovely comments on my blog.
