A few days in France and other stuff.

Its been along time since I posted on my blog but also quite an eventful time. I ve been filmed for BBC2 show called "Show me the Money" which is supposed to be aired on 28th of this month at 5.45pm. I hope I didnt embarrass myself too much and although i did not get selected for the Final Show it was quite enjoyable. I also had 3 of my paintings hung in the Royal society of British Painters Exhibition at the Mall Galleries and two in The Wapping Group Show at the same gallery.I have had a miserable time painting ..mainly because I havent been doing much. Ive had problems at work and the weather has been terrible so going to stay with my friend paul agin in the Cote D Azur was a very welcomed break. My friend Tony Dakin and I just had a long weekend there and although the weather wasnt great we managed to get a fair bit of work done, most of which Ive posted below (warts and all as usual) I was happy with 2 or 3 but there are a couple of real turds:-). Today it felt like Spring and the weather and atmosphere was glorious..alas no painting. Not long until the weekend so I just hope it stays like it! Thats it for now.

  1. Nice pictures Karl. Love the tree studies.

  2. If you post one more time

    "I haven't been posted, bla bla bla"

    again i am going to trow you off my blog-list.
    Everyone can see you make marvelous work when you do get to it, and your trying hard enough to do so, so stop complaining about your posting.

    I am a bit joking, but somewhere I do mean it, .. a little, ... bit, ... ty.

    Take care Karl, your doing fine!

  4. Good paintings Karl, 'Cap Ferrat' my favourite...failed to spot the turds by the way :-)
