Mushroom Soup


Well we are back. Had a very nice long weekend in Brecon. We met a lot of very nice people and sold some paintings. We used to live in Brecon before moving to Carmarthen about 20 years ago so we know the town well. It is on old market town which is largely unspoilt. We owned a house with a view to kill for. The Beacons were the backdrop to our garden and I can still recall opening the backdoor and taking in the magnificence of Pen y Fan dusted with snow in winter.
This weekend we camped in a small site on the Libanus Road. We were the only occupants, no surprise considering the monsoon. The site is bordered by a river which runs into the Usk and on Friday it was a wall of angry water swollen by hours of torrential rain.
On Friday evening we went to the Private view of the Small Picture Show. There was an abundance of high class work. Three paintings by Ken Howard,work by William Selwyn,Sian Egerton, John Knapp Fisher, HRH Prince Charles donated a ltd edition print, and many more in fact too many to mention. We took 6 paintings of which 4 were sold by Saturday morning.
The painting above was bought by a very nice couple Ian and Clare. They own the Ardent Galleries in Brecon stocked with lovely work so if you get a chance drop in to see them.
We have the builders coming in tomorrow so we have to start moving paintings and clearing the halls now.
First Alex has made mushroom soup which I hear is ready.
