September Update

Another amazing Running With Brushes month. Our sales were even better than the previous two months, and our artist community grew in leaps and bounds. If you are an artist who has sent us paintings, please bear with us if there’s a delay in getting them on the website. There have been times this month when I’ve been a tiny bit overrun by work. I’ve got a wonderful collection waiting to be posted up as I type. They will be on the website by the end of this week.

I had a wonderful meeting with the inspiring Care for Casualties co-ordinator Becca Maciejewska this month. It was really good to hear first hand about the work being done. We were really excited to have a couple of paintings going to RHQ this month too.

There have been some great stories about RWB paintings which I’ll blog during the coming weeks and we’ve got some ideas we’ll share as well.

Thank you for following and supporting Running With Brushes. It’s been a wonderful 3 months and I’m really looking forward to October’s paintings.

Hayley sent in this fabulous photo of her Running With Brushes all framed and ready to go on the wall in her dressing room. We think it looks amazing. If you’ve got an RWB original, and you’d like to share a photo, we’d love to put it on the blog.
