I’ve been lucky enough to have two of my recent pictures (“Horse Chestnuts” & “Four Tomatoes”) hung in another gallery, The Gallery – Melrose in the Scottish Borders.
Great art gallery, gifts and picture framing too, run by the very friendly David and Iain.
Pop in for a look round if you are passing.

Apaintings at Castle Park Art Centret the back end of the year I submitted three paintings to a local art exhibition. Thought you might like to see them in situ.  Now they are wrapped up safely till I (hopefully) get them into another gallery later this year and maybe make a sale?
These are graphite and coloured pencil works on three different kinds of paper, as much a test of the paper as of my skill rendering the subjects. Titles are:”Four Tomatoes”, “Horse Chestnuts” and “Two Plums”
(Titles are not my strong point!)

I’ve entered paintings in this annual open exhibition for the past three years and they have all been botanical subjects and they have all been round shapes. It seems there is a pattern developing!

The Castle Park Arts Centre in Frodsham, Cheshire always has something interesting coming up and I regularly take a trip to see whats hanging and visit the cafe.

weeRose1weeSunflower1squareDaisy1 Latest occupation has turned out to be… painting, little flowers in acrylics. These above are NOT FINISHED yet.
That’s gonna be difficult, making the last brush stroke, the final fiddle, the definitive dab. And what do I do with them? I feel an online gallery coming on, selling a little part of me might be a wrench but I’ll cope, not selling them may be worse.

The flowers in these paintings are based on my own photographs, oddly I expected to refer much more to the originals but that need seems to wear off once the board or canvas is sufficiently covered in paint. They are taking on a life of their own.
