23rd & 24th June at Braunston Historic Boat Gathering and Canal Rally.
An eventful weekend from start to finish, the sun shone and the people came to see the ‘Summer Exhibition’ by the Guild of Waterway Artists. It was well attended and I had a good weekend, and it is always nice to sell something. In this case the ‘Kingfisher Dive’ I finished in May is now sold and has gone to his new home. It was one of those paintings that I had been working on for about two years and finally completed in May and Sold in June at Braunston.
Highlight of the weekend was Timothy West and Prunella Scales who came to look around our exhibition, showing an interest in my Lockmaster Maps Illustrated series.
A small write-up with more updates to come. Trying to keep on track with our journey which from Braunston is taking us to Nottingham to have our boat blacked and to see our first Grandchild. Sixty miles, 33 locks and 8 days to get there at 3 miles per hour. Early mornings and early evenings to avoid the heat of the day.
