- A lot of setting up at the @paintoutnorfolk 2021 exhibition was underway when I dropped off my final painting this morning (including mowing the gallery grass). Exhibition is at Flint Barn Field, Whitlingham Country Park is open from 6.30pm to 8pm this evening for the Private View and Saturday 10am to 6pm.Here is my final @paintoutnorfolk 2021 painting.
