New Work Now Showing at ScotlandArt Galleries

I am pleased to announce that I now have new originals exhibtiing at ScotlandArt, a leading Scottish contemporary art gallery based in both Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The 4 paintings currently on show are from my recent Artist Collection;
  • Up in the Sky
  • Sit and Wonder
  • North Country Boy
  • Camarillo Brillo SOLD
These will be available to view on the ScotlandArt website soon, or if you are able to, do take time out to visit their gallery at 193 Bath Street, Glasgow.

Being involved with such a well respected gallery here in Scotland is something I am very excited about and is another fantastic opportunity.

I will keep you informed as to how things are going and of course any further developments.

Magic Window

'Magic Window' (36" x 30" acrylic on box canvas)
Available at ScotlandArt.com

What happened to all those British classics we loved and grew up with, Trumpton, Camberwick Green, Paddington Bear, Rent A Ghost and even, dare I say it, Jackanory!? Why do we not have the friendly face and voice of a Brian Cant greeting us on our screens anymore?

What we now have instead are countless kids channels filled with American style programmes! The magic window to our British childhood culture has gone and I would welcome back the days of the 'off air' transmission screen as a replacement any day!

That would certainlly help prevent our kids saying phrases such as 'Frickin awesome' or 'oh no you ditnt'!!

* New Website Now Live *

This week I have been working on a new website and I'm glad to say it is now up and running so please check it out.....

You can browse through the easy to use galleries to view my main catalogue of work and you can still read about the paintings in the shop section where further information can also be found.

There are the usual useful pages, including an insightful About Me page, contact forms and other info, as well as links to this blog and the Facebook Group.
