This weeks photo challenge is ‘extra’. Last week I posted off a package of work for a mixed show in Jersey, in the Channel Island, as a guest artist in Observations with Art in the Frame, at The Harbour Gallery, opening this weekend. I hope the show goes well.
So I present a few ‘extras’ for you: a potpourri selection of details from some of the work I sent off as my contribution. (click on images for a larger view).

To counteract the madness that leads up to Christmas (believe me I get caught up in the excitement too), I like to take myself into the landscape to restore my equilibrium. These are some of the paintings I did from drawings done earlier in the year.

I have just delivered a ‘postcard’ sized drawing of one of our whippets, Zola (see below), to include in Badcocks’s Christmas exhibition. It runs over two weekends, 3/4 and 10/11 December – or by appointment – at 10 Long Row (see above, ‘picture postcard’ cottage) Sheffield, Penzance, with a percentage of proceeds going towards Shelterbox. Including ceramics, textiles, fairies, bunting and handbags as well as paintings, this exhibition promises to be full of Christmas cheer, and you could be helping this most worthy of causes.
