Here's my new exciting news!!
I can finally tell you that I've been selected by the BBC as one of a small group of artists who are going to be filmed on the 3rd June standing on the Millennium bridge over the river Thames painting the Queen's diamond jubilee pageant as the boats sail beneath us!
There will be one thousand boats sailing in the flotilla with the Queen and other members of the Royal family on the Royal barge. It is going to be the largest collection of historic vessels ever assembled on the Thames. The lead vessel is a floating belfry with eight church bells on board ringing! One of the boats taking part, the Amazon, also took part in Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, in 1897. Two million people are expected to gather in London to watch the procession, and I am so, so excited that I will be there to paint the events as they unfold!
It's really happening and it's happening next weekend!
