M a r i a R o s e – F i n e A r t i s t

Devon based plein air painter


I had another successful and very enjoyable Pintar Rapido event in London in July, it also happened to be my Birthday! I painted two that I was happy with and hung the second one shown here- a lovely jewellery shop in Chelsea. I am really pleased that it sold within an hour of the exhibition opening!

Me and Tom Stevenson have an exhibition of some recent oil paintings up in the Mall Deli in Clifton, Bristol for until mid- February, do pop in if you are in the area, fab deli and café and a lovely space to exhibit in http://www.themalldeli.co.uk

Attended a very enjoyable painting and picnic with the The Royal Institute of Oil Painters on Saturday, at Saltford, near Bath. Sunburn in the morning and ending in a torrential downpour! Thanks all for a fantastic day.

Me and my partner Tom (http://tpstevenson.com/) looking triumphant despite not winning or selling at this year's Pintar Rapido event in London. It was stinking hot and very hard work but really good fun, we chose to go to Hampstead as the competition has broadened to incorporate the whole of London rather than just Kensington and Chelsea as per previous years, I found an interesting view but if I attend next year I might stick a bit closer for my own sanity.
