New Studio

It’s been a labour of love making my new shed / studio. It’ll remind me of how I managed to do something positive during lockdown as well as giving me a push towards getting back on track with my painting ambitions. I love being a teacher, but I love making art more!

Here are my basic plans. I’m no woodworker but it wanted to make sure that I stuck to a plan.

All that hard work means that I now have an area of my own to paint in, although my wife seems to like it too!

Here’s to many happy hours painting, creating and watching the birds 🙂

Valley Parables: New Paintings by James Donovan

James Donovan is exhibiting forty new paintings at Cardiff’s Kooywood Gallery from Thursday September 10th.

The Aberdare artist’s new paintings are a return to what he calls the ‘new, old Wales’, where old habits die hard and stereotypes live on through a cast of comical yet poignant characters that reflect personal and universal views on valleys life and Welsh culture.

The show continues until Saturday October 3rd.
