pview invite 3
A selection of my Penguin paintings are on exhibition at
Water Street Gallery in Todmorden in their Winter Season open Exhibition.
The opening night is Thursday 31st October. The exhibition runs until the 31st January 2014.
Why not call by and p-p-p-pick up a penguin….

all primed and ready to go

A 5 foot by 3 foot canvas primed and ready to go….
Having my ‘Reverence’ painting selected for exhibition at the Mall Galleries feels like permission to continue painting large scale paintings; following my heart……

managed to un-earth the printing press :-)

Great to be able to use the printing press at Northlight Art Studios for my new lino prints. Rubbing the backs with a spoon may be just as effective, but is a little time-consuming – not to mention the thumb-cramp!!!!
Pleased with the results. Come and check them out at the
Winter Open Studios on Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December!!!

In an attempt to let in some artistic enlightenment I am painting the studio window frames white…..
New paintings and lino prints will be pouring forth shortly, no doubt!!!
