Small town : lovers by John Bunday Chris and Brenda Molyneux - Venue 75 A er a three year break Chris and Brenda are delighted to be taking part in the 2022 Hampshire Open Studios event again this year at their home in Hythe. During lockdown Brenda challenged herself to produce a few watercolour paintings to add to her collection and has also been exploring new colour combinations in her abstracted work along with the atmospheric seascapes and landscapes that she loves, but every painting has been a journey of exploration and discovery. Intense colour re ects her mood and emotions but she says each painting takes its own path and determines the process towards the end result. During this timeChris has not been idle inhis workshop. He has enjoyed exploring the hidden treasures in wood to create unique pieces in both functional and decorative forms. Although still very a ordable his work is nished to a very high standard capturing the nature within. He uses both exotic and indigenous woods turning each trunk into a tactile object of beauty. They look forward to welcoming you to view their many new pieces of woodturning and paintings along with some treasured favourites. ey are open daily from 10am to 5pm so do go along and see what they do.
