Splosh of Frogmore is one of several paintings I’ll be showing at the the annual Contemporary Passions exhibition.
My ‘contemporary passion’ for the 2017 Contemporary Passions exhibition is ‘places other than Salcombe’. For the past decade or so, I’ve focused on scenes within easy walking distance of my home in Salcombe, and I’ve painted over 100 of them.
Frogmore is some miles away from Salcombe, beyond Kingsbridge by road. By boat, with the right tide, it is a magical short voyage from Salcombe through beautiful countryside. So, it fits the theme!
Splosh of Frogmore
Splosh is real, tied up near a little bridge. The faded coloured roundels show Splosh has had many years of service in Salcombe Harbour.
The day I was passing by, the egret was fishing in the stream, competing with dancing reflections of Splosh.
You’ll notice that I used my artistic licence to move the egret.
For more information about this painting, read my Sketchbook notes.
What is the Contemporary Passions exhibition?
This is an annual opportunity for members of SHAF (South Hams Art Forum) to stage a major summer show of new works in a wide range of mediums and styles, a snapshot of the artists’ current work, interests and creative passions.
This is the first year I have taken part in this exhibition and am one of ten SHAF members exhibiting their work: Teresa Barlow, Nick Cotter, Gilly Cotter, Sue Farrow-Jones, Jane Mahood, Michele Meyer, Elaine Sibley, Sally Tapsell-Hunt, Val Uglow, and myself.
During the next few weeks, I’ll showcase the many paintings I intend to display, and introduce the other artists too.
