Have a think about painting yourself

I will also encourage attendees to explore your own artistic endeavours by taking up a bit of painting, underscoring the mental health benefits and the joy it can bring. Additionally, I will provide a list of required items with an estimated budget to get you started.

The kit I will  be suggesting is no bigger than a large paperback book, so very easy to carry and a great alternative to the phone.

And finally…

… A raffle for an original painting of Bruton, plus a question and answer session.

Liam’s exquisite work captures the ordinary, the everyday happenings in life. Things we often miss but are reminded of in Liam’s masterful use of watercolours and oils.
Jan Ollis Co Chair Somerset Art Works

I wanted to thank you for the very enjoyable talk you gave recently in the Wells Library. Your comments on how an artist needs to think creatively, take decisions and more importantly look, was fascinating. It offered accessible insights into seeing the world around us in a new way. I feel everybody there believed by the end that they too can join in, This is not something people readily feel! I particularly like that your practice is highly skilled and interesting, yet the works speak directly to a general audience.

You managed to make everyone in the room feel included and, with a great blend of humour, anecdote and light touch art history. All power to your elbow and congratulations on an excellent morning.
