"Blue Boat" Oil Painting by jenny meehan (after Ivon Hitchens)

“Blue Boat” Oil Painting by jenny meehan (after Ivon Hitchens)

 

Oh, well. Despite a terrrible sold, er, I mean cold, I feel rather merry, at least for a moment, having recently received a nice little pat on the back. These things are always encouraging. My painting “Blue Boat” was highly commended by the judges in the Needhams Open Art Competition 2009 which is run by Ovenden Contemporary Limited.

Er, I seem to have lost some of my post, and I am experimenting with the images.  So, here is another look!

The text I seem to have lost,  well, it just said about the course I went on  at West Dean College, near Chichester in Sussex.  It was there I painted this in 2008, as part of the excellent “Landscape and figure painting in Oils , the British Tradition” led by John T Freeman.  Heaven.  Paint all day, and some of the evening, and enjoy the wonderful gardens at West Dean College.  Heaven.  It must be.  Going there again soon, for a blacksmithing course…Looking forward to that.
