New paints

Trying out some new paints today also – Winsor & Newton Artists’ Acrylic to be precise. So far so good. However I must remember they are not miracle workers, just more tubes of paint. The actual painting & hard graft still needs to come from me!

A fine day for some outdoor painting I’m SURE you’d agree. Orkney is looking at it’s finest today so better get back to it. My exhibition at the Loft Gallery in June won’t paint itself.

Tis the Season…

…to be jolly. Or so they say anyway. I’ve had a few stressed shoppers in to see me today at the Garden Centre. (Some jolly, some not so). Either way I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all of YOU a very happy Christmas and positive New Year when it comes around.

Without all your support, my artwork would be nothing so give yourselves a well-earned pat on the back. I look forward to sharing my new artwork with you in 2013…

See you soon:-)

So…I’ve just hung some artwork UP in Stromness and tomorrow I need to take my other exhibition DOWN in Kirkwall. Lots of work moving around for me at the moment. The Bay Leaf Deli is a wonderful food shop/mini gallery in Stromness run by Gavin Warnock. It’s just up the lane past the Bookshop & Sally Lynch’s gorgeous shop, Cream. (Have you been? It’s worth a visit) I currently have 7 pieces in the Deli – all for sale – should you be looking for that special something.

Thanks to Duncan & Julia also for the space at the Wool & Wine, Kirkwall. It’s been a hot little spot for the past month. If you haven’t been past yet you have until tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon.

Show time over

Thanks to every single one of you who browsed and bought from my stand on County Show day, it was a hectic day in that hot tent! If you didn’t get in past be sure and have a look online or drop in past the Garden Centre to see the latest framed artwork & gifts on display. I would also like to welcome my latest stockist ‘The Orkney Brewery’, Quoyloo.

And here’s my latest Limited Edition Print which will be available shortly…1/20 in series. It’s ‘Seigy’s Bridle’. This was my little Shetland pony, who also featured on my black & white placemats…

Taken from an Original painting on canvas done by Britt Harcus in 2000. This is one of just 20 available – coming soon!
