Great Gallery

Yellow Hall
600mm x 400mm oil on board
A few more from the exhibition, its all hung now and the evening viewing went very well, lots of red dots which is brilliant.  It makes such a difference seeing everything displayed beautifully, I think sometimes artists don't realise what a good gallery can do for you.  Anyway, I appreciate it and I know that they earn every penny of their commission!

My Solo Show

The Italian
610mm x 800mm, oil on board £1,250
My solo show "Simple Things, Still Life" is ready to go, the Evening Viewing will be on February 15th, the catalogue is out and some of the paintings have already sold.  I am excited and nervous!  Its a lot of work and a lot of heart and soul go into painting. 
It has been a very exhausting but brilliant thing to spend months working towards a whole show.  As a painter who is so used to documenting my work on this blog it has been difficult to keep it all under wraps... because I thrive on your comments!  However now all is framed and by this time next week everything will be in the process of being hung.
There is also a book, which is lovely.  It has many of the paintings from the show along with studies and sketchbook work and some musings by me on each painting.  You can buy it from the gallery web site or win one by going to the gallery face book page and liking and sharing the page, that's got to be worth a try!

Afternoon Sieste
800mm x 610mm, oil on board £1,250
You can see all of the paintings on the gallery web site now and you can even go onto their mailing list which will keep you up to date with e-catalogues and special offers for my work and any of the other artists that they represent.
Silver and Lime Flowers
230mm x 300mm, oil on board £425
The paintings are a collection of interiors, "found" still life and gardens, all inspired by memories and recollections of childhood.  Anyway, I hope that you enjoy looking at them and if you are in or around Falmouth on Friday 15th from 6 in the evening it would be lovely to see you.
