‘The paintings have delightful titles, leading one into the childhood stories portrayed in rich textured oils. “Sacred River”, a reverent place which life revolved around, “Alley Cats” and “Minnie the Wildgoose” conjuring up a group of carefree children playing and then the slightly scary misty figure of “Tom Bones”,What was he really collecting?. “Chasing Dreams” sums up all our aspirations, so warm and happy while “Winter Tapestry” reminds us of the beauty of a winter scene, even if we didn’t think so at the time. These are a few of the 20 + images at this lovely exhibition and Maria was available on the opening night to tell the stories behind them.’
