Light on my Easel

A Light at the End of the Tunnel is a phrase which will be well used this year. I feel there is Light on My Easel. Light on the palette knife and paint to cheer and enthuse me to begin spring work. As I write, the sun shines and warms through the glass towards my easel – even though the cold north and east winds blow outside.

There is important news about Chichester Open Studios Art Trail – the date has moved from May to July (see below). New Trail dates in Summer give an opportunity to display some work in the open air which makes viewing easier in the current circumstances. Full of enthusiasm, I have spent a year on new paintings still not seen in public. There is an eagerness to safely share. QR codes will be displayed, test and trace will operate, plus any other covid-related government guidelines.

Susie Olford, ‘Song of the Sea’, oils

My paintings in oil or acrylic remain cheerful and bright. I love the open air, live near the sea, with lots of weather and clouds. My paintings are also exhibited by The Little Art Gallery, West Wittering.

For more information visit the art trail website: You will find me at Venue 38, on the eastern side of the Trail’s geographic area, Regis Section. It is a short drive on the A259 from Littlehampton to the Felpham roundabout, exit Flansham, PO22 8NJ. The venue is a spacious barn with wheelchair access.

Dates: 10th, 11th, and 17th, 18th July 2021.  For more information contact
