Painting the Modern Garden, The Royal Academy, London

Hubby and I were lucky enough to be given complimentary tickets to 'Painting the Modern Garden: Monet to Matisse' at The Royal Academy of Arts, London. Using the work of Monet as a starting point, the exhibition examines the role gardens played in the evolution of art from the early 1860s through to the 1920s.



Featuring over 120 amazing artworks, including paintings by Renoir, Cezanne, Pissarro, Manet, Sargent, Kandinsky, Van Gogh, Matisse, Klimt and Klee - the exhibition was a masterclass in impressionist and floral painting. Fascinated by the brush work, use of colour and composition, it gave me just the inspiration I needed to complete my current landscape commission!

Formally of Bucks Fizz, Towngate Theatre, Basildon

Throwback to the 80's and my childhood with 1981 Eurovision winners Bucks Fizz. Original members Mike Nolan, Cheryl Baker and Jay Aston with new member Bobby McVey. For legal reasons (Google it!) the band are unable to call themselves 'Bucks Fizz' so are now know as 'Formally of Bucks Fizz'. A fun and nostalgic evening at Towngate Theatre, Basildon ... and I still remember ALL the lyrics!

Mike, Cheryl and Jay with new member Bobby McVey
