You'll have to excuse my blind photography which isn't up to the standard of my blind artistry but..... Look what's up in the art gallery at St Nicolas Earley - 41 of the 50 paintings are hung and the rest should be up by the end of the week when we get the extra clips we need.
As you walk from the welcome space and cafe, on the left hand side, there are six "Views of Reading" plus a painting of St Nicolas Church.
On the right hand side are 9 (soon to be 18) of the paintings from my book "Lights Stuck On Red".
The wall straight ahead of you provides 10 sets of 4 "Landscape paintings".
And finally, round the corner, on the right wall beside the entrance to the hall, are 12 paintings from my book "Dormiveglia".
In the welcome space itself are some cards of my art (£2 each), some mini prints (£3 each) as well as copies of all my books (£5 each). There's also a visitors book (thanks to Created by Meiyun for that idea) and my business cards if you'd like to enquire about any of my paintings.
So now it's over to you to go visit. The building is open 9am-5pm every day.
I will be in the cafe every Friday morning from 10am - midday so if you visit then please say hi.
And don't forget....

I think I might have to accept the fact that I am definitely an author, poet and artist. I keep pinching myself.
