Latest testimonial

"You are looking good, Grenville, keeping in shape and a smart new haircut as well.  Sorry to hear about your nose!

I love your new work, the animals look gorgeous, particularly the donkeys, and the primrose looks very pretty."

And here's a close-up of the aforementioned new haircut & damaged nose. Hair by top stylist Linda Franklin. Damaged nose by trip up a twilit low-lying step.

Sunday Farmers' Market on the Vine Gardens

'Afternoon Bonnie

If you click here you'll see some of the feedback we received.  Worked well for us. Thanks Bonnie.

Fortunately for us neither stall 29 nor 30 turned up so we were facing the bridge, which is ideal for avoiding too much direct sunlight on my pics.  So please, please, please put us in either pitch 29 or 30 next time.  Our stall would give an eye-catching splash of colour to the entrance of the market too, drawing the punters in.  (Poppies and chickens are always a big draw!)



We're available May, July and September.  So please put us down for those months.

All the best

BBC Gardeners' World Live Show

Ta for your reply, Roxanne.  And thanks for your compliment.  

When I spoke to your company (admittedly a few years ago) a chap called David said he could get the price down for us to 1200.  Think either my wife balked at this figure or some other event clashed with yours.  Either way we didn't pursue it.

Now sadly your cost is way beyond the figure of 700 I was hoping to pay.  We live a long way away so travelling and B&B costs would all have to be accounted for too.

Anyway, thanks for your time and good luck with your inestimable show.

All the best

Dear Grenville

I thought I originally contacted you about this, as I went through all the likely people who also attend the Hop Festival, anyway – after my initial work it has now been handed back to the events team and Annette who are organising the actual day.  I will forward a copy of your email to them and ask them to let you have a form asap.

Best wishes

Wendy

Badger Watch at the Heathfield Show



Mud, sweat and debauchery!  Well, mud and sweat, anyway.

Chap up the far corner (with shooting stick) had received a Grenville Allen Off-Roading Can Be Fun hedgehog pic and vowed that if ever he found the artist he'd buy more.  Lo and behold: there I am.  (I'm the one on the right in the foreground, hands behind my back, listening to his story v intently.)

A fond farewell from Ann Widdecombe to Hazel & Grenville


Grenville and Hazel have an audience

         with Ann Widdecombe




A few kind words from Ann:
"...I also wanted to say how much I like the beautiful painting, which was presented to me by the Association.  Grenville you have a wonderful talent and the picture will take pride of place once the renovations to my house on Dartmoor are complete."
The Rt. Hon. Ann Widdecombe MP, The House of Commons, London

Grenville's latest poppy: what a whopper!





Diva

Yes, it's nearly 24" by 19"!  Just like the massive daisy pic, Drama Queen.  Designed to make a lovely twosome. And it's now SOLD along with the daisy and sunflower. A veritable triptych!
