The Latest From Planet Arty
Added at 16:37 on 13 September 2021
This summer saw events both expected and surprising. I've sold work at a lovely gallery and shop on Dunoon high street for a while. The Meeting Place raises money for various mental health projects and alas a few weeks ago an arsonist did his worst and the whole place burnt down. Gutting to say the least. I really hope the lovely couple who run it can rise like a phoenix... One of the paintings lost in the fire was this Buddhist lotus painting. I loved it. Here it is when it was exhibited at a previous Cowal Open Studios exhibition:
Underneath it is one of my stone paintings, more of which are in the pipeline (as well as in my gallbladder). Anyway, onwards and upwards. The good news is I have a painting at FRONTEER GALLERY in Sheffield and one at OBSIDIAN GALLERY in Stoke Mandeville! Plus I had a lovely time at Dunoon summer market, here I am bending someone's ears, possibly moaning about how I could have painted on paper or canvas like a normal person but oh no, I chose slate, the heaviest thing known to humankind (if you are carrying it yourself whilst also trying to carry a coffee, your phone, and keys).
Swing by the painting and slate pages for some new designs and let me know if anything tickles your fancy - there are name slates and some seascapes and all sorts of colourful things to brighten a corner! Thanks to Craig Coultman-Smith for photos and web wizardry. And remember - by buying from me you're helping support a small (5 foot 1?!) local artist and my endeavour to bring arty joy from Dunoon to you!
