I have just completed a series of six pen and watercolours of some of the charming independent shops in the stunning Suffolk village of Clare. It’s a fantastic place to go for a bit of R&R – a lovely park, antique shops, cafes, and a great bookshop and gift shop. A greetings card featuring all six, as well as cards featuring individual independents are sold by Blue Dog in Clare, who already stock many of my greetings cards. The original paintings will be exhibited at Sea Pictures gallery in Clare. 10 June to 7 August 2017.
