Buckets and Spades

Hi It's been a bit of a gap since I last wrote, but thats because rather than painting or opening the gallery I have been living TED CONEY'S FAMILY PORTRAITS to the full!
We have just had our annual holiday in Sheringham, Norfolk and there were 22 of the family there. It's always very hetic but we have been organising it for over 20 years and now all our children (ours, plus nephews and neices) are bringing their children.
I've used Sheringham twice in my paintings so far. '30 DAYS' was a painting about our month's holiday there in the 1980's when the children were small. It is painted on thirty jigsaw pieces, one for each day. The other painting, 'Katy's Gold' has little starbursts of Sheringham scenes to represent happy memories of family life.
So Sheringham is quite special and it was good to see the old place again Best Wishes Ted
