A series of watercolours by Susie Lidstone.

The floral watercolours I was not impressed by. Yes, the intricate detail was there, or was when not obscured by reflections, but would have been better, the classic still life, a flower in a vase or in the garden.

The paintings of buildings, well worth a visit for. Though could as much be the subject matter.

She does not say where they are, most I was able to suss out.

A group of three were Farnham, Castle Street, and the passage leading to and from the Parish Church.

In another group, the alms houses in Castle Street in Farnham.

On a leaflet, the greengrocer in Downing Street in Farnham, though not on display.

The artist paints what they see. It is for us to then see what they see. Somewhat difficult when glass is put in front of the painting, and all you see are reflections.

Presentation one would have thought goes with the job description. Why therefore are artists so lacking in presentation skills? Maybe that is why they need galleries.

The summer art exhibition at Café Mila in Godalming is well worth a visit (the food is pretty good too).
