2014 Events and Exibitions
This year I am focussing on events closer to home and developing interest in my work locally.
I have a number of interesting projects emerging and so 'watch this space' as they say. 
Festival of Birds
WWT Slimbridge, Gloucestershire
Jan31st and 1st February (10.00 am – 5.00 pm)
I have a stand by the entrance to the cafe this year and I am looking forward to doing this very enjoyable show. It adds an extra interest to a day's visit to Slimbridge with lots of different bird-related exhibits.
Drawing and Painting Workshops
Prinknash Bird and Deer Park
April 16th 17th 18th & 19th

Drawing Birds and Animals.                                                                     16th 17th April           10am to 4-30pm

Come and develop your drawing skills from photos and from life. You will be able to use a variety of drawing instruments and papers and you will be tutored on a one to one basis so all skill levels are welcome.

Painting Birds and Animals in Oils or Acrylics.                                                 18th & 19th April          10am to 4-30pm

If you would like to be impressionist or highly illustrative Ronald will be able to guide you to success. With one to one tuition he will enable you to develop your own particular style and use his very wide experience to guide you through all the aspects of what it takes to produce a terrific painting. You can work from photography or from sketches done from life.

Please book with Prinknash on 01452 812727 or office@thebirdpark.com

I will be doing two or three workshops during November and December the dates of which will be announced shortly.

Severnvale Art Trail
Thursday 30th April – 10th May 2015
Following the very successful exhibition in our home and studio last year during the Severnvale Art Trail Liz and I will be hosting open house and studio once more, with the added temptation of home-made cake and refreshments for the whole of the Art Trail period. We will be open 10.00am – 6.00pm on each day.
If you have not visited the art trail before it is well worth doing as it is now very well established with a very wide selection of work to be seen by local artists, covering most of the Severnvale Area around Thornbury, Berkeley and Wootton-under-edge.
South Gloucestershire Show
Windmill Fisheries Showground, BS37 8QZ
1st and 2nd August
I will be showing again in my own marquee this year. This local county show just north of Bristol was brand new last year and had the misfortune of really bad rain on the first day and so the fact that we did not do too badly means I am willing to give it another go. It did have a large variety of events in the ring and a very wide range of stands and attractions so if you like this kind of event then I recommend you come and take a look.
One Man Exhibition
WWT Welney Wetland Centre Hundred Foot Bank, Welney, Norfolk PE14 9TN Phone:01353 860711
!st September to 31st October
This is my big event for 2015. Two months showing my work at my favourite wetland centre. I have over the last year completed three murals which are now hanging in the centre, two in the cafe and one in the main hide and I really enjoyed my time working there. I will be showing my usual wide selection of paintings, drawings and prints and for the very first time at Welney there will be a preview and 'official opening' for the exhibition on Tuesday the 1st of September from 6pm to 9pm.

Invitations to the preview will be available shortly so let me know if you would like to attend.
Frampton Country Fair
Frampton upon Severn, Gloucestershire
13th September
I have a space again this year at what is reputed to be the best one day country fair you are ever likely to visit. Personally I wish it was two days. I will be there again in my own marquee enjoying the really friendly atmosphere and trying not to spend too much money in the surrounding stands.
