Dogstival, Pylewell Park


A few months ago, the Epicurean Club contacted me to ask if I would like to exhibit some of my dog paintings on their stand at Dogstival at Pylewell Park in May.  And of course, the answer was always going to be yes!

They were there to promote their superb range of “dog friendly” pubs and my artwork (which is on display in a number of the pubs) was to adorn the stand for visitors to view whilst they enjoyed a complimentary Chase Gin and Tonic.

I stayed at a lovely Airbnb property near the Isle of Wight ferry and was able to go back and forth to the festival a couple of miles away.  The weather was kind up until the last hour or so – I painted three paintings live for visitors to watch and we enjoyed a fabulous couple of days meeting and greeting some lovely pets and their owners.

(Saturday night), I joined the Epicurean Team to the “Mayflower” at Lymington which won an award for the most dog friendly pub.  It was fabulous and absolutely worth a visit.!
