Lockdown has been an interesting time for me, in some areas there has been little change to my routine. I usually spend much of my time in the studio, if I can, painting alone. So there hasn’t been much of a difference there. It’s been a really productive time for me. Also as the art fairs I was going to attend have been postponed so most of my new work has only been available online.
The good weather at the start of lockdown was a bonus. The recent rain has also helped with my veg plot. I love to grow whatever I can in the summer months, and lockdown has made more time for gardening. It’s great to get outside after being in the studio with the haze of paint fumes.
I have missed catching up with family and friends. Teignmouth is a small town so you can see other locals quite easily, but the 2 metres distance rule soon to be 1 metre makes things different.
Looking forward to the autumn with a couple of art fairs planned. If they get the green light to go ahead that is. Firstly the Contemporary Art Fair – Surrey at Sandown Park Race Course from 25th – 27th September 2020 and secondly the Contemporary Art Fair – Windsor at Royal Windsor Racecourse from 13th – 15th November 2020. Really hope you can join me.
I have just finished this new oil painting “Teal Wave Breaking” It is an oil on canvas measuring 120 x 50 cm or 47 x 20 inches. There is also a video of my painting process. For more details pleas click the link https://catherinekennedy.co.uk/product/teal-wave-breaking/
