'Gathering Storm' at Bayfield Hall

Everything looked wonderful - house, paintings, people - loads of visitors streamed over the lawn on an implausibly warm autumn evening, the lowering sun sliding into the plummy chandelier-lit Long Room; the paintings, hung on two L-shaped boards devised by my brilliant father, looked beautiful; Amanda Geitner gave a superb speech introducing the work that she and Frances Kearney had selected and, as you will see from the photos, not only did everyone have a good time but paintings were sold - in very creditable numbers!
Thanks to Caroline & Roger Combe for their tolerant aimiability while the show was on, Alec and James Douet for their patience, might and ingenuity, and Haydn, Tudor & Morgan for their skilful wine-pouring.
