Lots of outdoor work. A successful day last Saturday in Pond Square with non-stop visitors to our stall.

This coming weekend the paintings will visit the Hampstead School of Art marquee by Whitestone Pond. On the second weekend of July we’ll be ‘Painting Out Highgate’ and hopefully selling some pieces to support Lauderdale House and in honour of 5o years of the Highgate Society.

Arlington Square is a community open garden in a quiet conservation area of Islington, N1. It is surrounded by Victoria terraces and is very close to the Regent’s Canal which runs through this part of central London. The garden was originally an unkempt open space used during WW2 for trench shelters and barrage balloon moorings. The council laid it out in the 50s and planted (now mature) trees – including olives, palms , shrubs, lawns and flower beds.  Recently an active residents association has begun to hold regular gardening sessions and host some lively events, such as the summer fete that was held on the 7th September.  Events on the day included a tombola, book and other stalls, and a painting competition. I was delighted to be given a prize for my painting – a very welcome token for CASS Art! There are plans to put the images in a calendar and the painting can be seen at a local pub, the Hanbury Arms till the end of this month.
