I have an exhibition of brand new work opening at Beside The Wave in Falmouth on January 29th.
The title of this show, "Night and Day", as well as being a fantastic Cole Porter song, captures absolutely everything that I am motivated to paint. Light seen at different times of the day or night, life and lovely times captured and celebrated by the act of painting; The sun shining through glasses on a thick white linen table cloth. Mist slowly clearing in the early morning. The heat of an afternoon wandering through a garden in a foreign land, senses alive to new scents and sensations. Visiting the city and enjoying the colour of a rain soaked sky.

As keeping sketchbooks are fundamental to my practice as an artist I have celebrated this aspect by including two little sketchbooks, “French Roads” and “A Cornish Winter” both complete with 29 little paintings and housed in a special opening frame so that it is possible to enjoy each painting and then to have a new one every day. Like a slow time slide show!

A collection of new work that I think sits very well together. I will put all the work on my web site after the 29th, in the meantime a preview can be requested from Beside The Wave.
