The Rugby Festival of Culture 2018 is under way, and my part in it is twofold.
Along with many other artists, I have one of my paintings displayed in a shop window.
Mine is in the florists "Flowers by Pauline" on Regent Street, and they have done
a marvellous window dressing in colours to complement my painting.
I've also spent two days in the Rugby Shopping Centre,
demonstrating in pastel drawing - part of the "Artists at Work" feature.
It was quite a busy spot, and plenty of people came by, so I was able to talk to
them and explain my work, and received many favourable comments.
It has been one of the hottest summers for years, so it was a pretty warm job,
but luckily my trusty parasol kept off the worst of the sun.
