The Party’s Over…

Glasgow Art

Artistic New Year

Well. it’s Hogmany and not only another year, but the first decade of the millenium over already. Can it really be ten years ago that we were all worrying about the millenium bug, planes falling out of the sky and partying like it was 1999?

This decade, for me was marked by massive change. If anyone had told me ten years ago where I would be in 2009 I would not have believed them. Whatever the noughties held for you may  you have a fantastic twenty ten.

Through the holiday’s I have painted in the studio whenever I have been able to. It has been strange entering the building and a customer who visited commented on the eerie feel. Cafe Sejuiced is closed (see pic above). and there is a real “end of the year feel”.

Personally, I am enthusiastic about the New Year and have some really exciting things lined up including work with Braewell Galleries and I will be continuing to exhibit at Park Gallery amongst others: watch this space.

So, Happy New Year from this artist to you and yours.

Mother’s Art

Friday, December 4th, 2009

New-Female-Art-2Well, it’s been a good week painting. One of those well-balanced weeks when i have had the opportunity to work on a variety of painting.

This painting, with the working title of “A Mother’s Love” is a big canvas that I have been working on for a few weeks (you can see it in the earlier stages below). I can’t explain how fresh this painting feels to me. It may not seem that way to the viewer, I don’t know but the whole process and the meanderings of the method of painting has kept me coming back to the painting in between working on commissioned paintings and other new pieces.

I also think there is a definate knock-on effect and the enthusiasm can be infectious from one painting to another.

Tomorrow is the start of the last art event of the year for me, the second weekend of the Parade Artists exhibition in Glasgow and the above piece will be on display to get the public’s initial reaction. I will probably develop the piece further and it is earmarked for inclusion at an event with Marcus MacLeod’s Braewell Galleries (formerly ArtDeCaf) for an event in Edinburgh.

UPDATE Please note that I no longer have anything to do with Braewell Galleries.
