Prize-winning painting at home in The New Deanery

By 7th September, 2017 News No Comments

One of the winning paintings from last month’s Braintree Open Art Exhibition has taken pride of place in The New Deanery. Artist Denise Coles lives opposite The New Deanery and her entry was inspired by the beautiful view of the home’s glorious grounds from her bedroom window.

Denise explained: “Having enjoyed the view from my bedroom window for 14 years, I decided to paint it, emphasising the shapes of the trees in early spring. It’s more like an arboretum than a care home! By day there are squirrels; by night you can hear owls and muntjac deer.

“I certainly enjoyed painting it and, to my delight and surprise, the painting was awarded the Braintree Community Centre Prize.”

The New Deanery Care Home in BraintreeDenise contacted Julia Clinton, Chief Executive of Sonnet Care Homes, which runs The New Deanery, who jumped at the chance to hang the painting at the home.

Julia said: “It really captures our natural, tranquil setting. The painting is already a talking point for our residents and visitors, it is hanging up in the bistro where they can sit and enjoy it, and it will brighten up the autumnal days ahead.”
