Coming up fast is my next exhibition, this time along with many others at the great Pittenweem Arts Festival, in Fife. You can find me just outside of the town at Ovenstone Brewery, along with a dozen or so other artists, a cafe. Perfect for calling in on your way in to the festival or on your way home as we are open a little later than the rest. For details, click on the link below. Here are a few of my new works that will be exhibited:
Just finished, four large – for me – bird paintings, based on my observations of the local bird life. Prices and any other information on request – please email me for details on my contact page or by my facebook account if you’d like to know more.
I’m very pleased and excited to be exhibiting at the Pittenweem Art Festival in the lovely harbour town in Fife this year for the first time. Opening night is 4th August and it runs for nine days until 13th. If you haven’t been before, check out the website below to see what it is all about – well worth a visit. Less than 1 week to go!
I am taking part in this for the next two weekends and look forward to sharing my work with visitors, if you can make it along:
During the winter this little flock of sparrows spent a lot of time in the bramble bushes and scrub at the top of the cliff above the local beach, with the backdrop of the bright sea.
The exhibition of artwork resulting from my Artist in Residency at the Highland Wildlife Park, near Kincraig, has now ended. It was a very enjoyable experience for me and I have now sold six of the pictures. The remaining artwork is still for sale if you would like to get in contact with me. A big thank you to the staff who were very helpful during the residency.
Two paintings recently finished. Both are of local views and experiences in the Cairngorms. The female pheasant I saw regularly on my way to work, and on one day, the sun was shining on the dry dead grass turning it into a golden streak across the moor. The five whooper swans were swimming as part of a wintering flock on a wee lochan near Boat of Garten. For more details, please see my gallery of work page.
Finally finished today. This painting is proving difficult to photograph because of the contrast between the darker and lighter areas.
These graceful migrating swans spend their winters in the Highlands before migrating north to Iceland for the summer. One of my favourite birds from the days when we lived at Welney in Norfolk.
