Making an exhibition of myself

Up to my ears in new paintings, thinking about the sheer amount of mounting & framing to do…all good stuff.

Here’s a copy of the flyer for my imminent exhibition in Frodsham starting May 19, with a meet the artist preview evening from 7 –  9pm on May 22nd…

I hope it goes without saying that it would be great to see as many of you as are able to be there….

I love the Lakes…who doesn’t?

So you can imagine how delighted and honoured, nay, downright chuffed I was to be asked by the creator of a superb new blog if I would mind being the first feature on its launch day. I won’t rabbit on any longer…you can read it for yourself, and please take a moment to appreciate the lovely clean design of the site….


Here’s just one of my many lake District sketches….

Spring has most definitely sprung

…and doesn’t it feel great? 

Mostly gallery- related news at the moment: if you read my Facebook page, you’ll know I had a little jaunt across the the lovely East Yorkshire Coast recently to deliver work to two galleries – The Woodend gallery in Scarborough, and Gallery Forty Nine in Bridlingtons’s old town.

Here are links to them both:

Gallery Forty Nine is owned by Liz Hillman – a lovely lady who has very graciously taken a whole pile of new original works, framed and just mounted, and told ne she intends to create a display in a room all to myself!!! Once they’re all hung I’ll let you all know and post photos, but to say I’m thrilled to be in the same space as original work by one of Bridlington’s most famous residents, and a personal hero of mine -David Hockney, would be an understatement..

In Scarborough, The Woodend Gallery is part of a superb period building, and run by the lovely Sheryl.There I left new original work, pus some prints and selection of new cards based on my new East Coast drawings and paintings.

Here are just a couple of samples of the work I left -it would be great of anyone’s over there to pop in and have a look -let me know what you think?
