Jelbert 06/07/12 – she cried!

Alongside my book writing, I paint for galleries and exhibitions, mainly in the South of England ( My paintings are usually slightly quirky in some way, hopefully capturing something beautiful in the everyday. At the moment I have some paintings at ‘First View’ gallery at Stourhead (National Trust), in Wiltshire:

I also do quite a lot of commission work, which I love. On Monday I met a lady in a Wells to hand over a painting I had done of her old house. There, in the middle of a busy cafe, she cried, makeup drifting down her cheeks. Thankfully, it was because she liked it and not due to sudden disappointment. It was a really great moment, to think that a painting could bring back so many memories for her.
