First Foot

Sexy Leg ArtistSo, Happy New Year to you.  Traditionally, the first person through your door should be “tall, dark and handsome” and carrying a lump of coal. I had a 5 foot 2 blonde girl but as she was carrying a bottle of champagne instead of the traditional coal I let her in anyway.

Today is a big holiday in Scotland but I have so much going on at the moment that I just had to go up to the studio to paint. I am working on nine new canvases at the moment. It’s a real mix of older style Joe Hendry art and some new paintings which I am quite excited about.

It seems that i was not the only one who couldn’t keep away from the lure of the canvas.  I bumped into artists Joe O’Brien and Stuart Gibbs. They were telling me that last night at the bells, they went onto the roof of the studios where there is a great view of the city and the fireworks which were being set off from George Square in Glasgow City Centre to herald in the New Year.  They noticed, as I had, from my vantage point at the time that they were completely invisible. At least they sounded impressive!
