A Potpourri of Observations

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).

Finding Peace on Earth

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.

‘Open Studio’ Sale

Orange Pool, 28cm x 30cm, mixed media

To coincide with Cornwall Open Studios which I have had to forgo this year because of the imminent arrival of my grandchild, I have instead created a new ‘work for sale‘ page on my website where you will find more pictures with prices.

I am happy to offer discounts and am currently running a ‘buy-one-get-one-half-price’ throughout the Summer.  If you have a special birthday coming up, or just want to treat yourself, just give me a call on 07713 592935.  Studio visits are welcome any time and I have a much larger selection of work in my studio.

Postcards for Shelterbox

10 Long Row, Sheffield

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.
