I adore this fabulously painted plate.
Penguins on parade……
Roo’s penguin paintings are now on display, and for sale, at The Bookcase – the wonderful independent bookshop on Market Street in Hebden Bridge, along with a selection of rather lovely greetings cards! (not to mention a shop full of hoards of fabulous books……)
Recently I have been particularly enamoured by the way that we all bring our own stories to the reading of a book, and each take a different story away with us – leaving the book on the shelf, altered, waiting for the next reader to come along….
Nice Weather for Penguins!

Go to the Craven Museum and Gallery website for details….

Vincent van Gogh, January 1874….
” Find things beautiful as much as you can, most people find too little beautiful.”
Welcome to my new art blog……
Here I will post news and latest images of my artworks as well as thoughts and observations on art and life….(hopefully either intelligent or amusing, or both!)
..and on that note:
A cluster of little penguins dotted about the studio wall. They look like a little family, all different but related – my little family. Pretty exciting really. I do love being productive.
