I delivered some of my paintings to the Jerram Gallery in Sherborne, Dorset yesterday. It’s a beautiful space and I’m very grateful for the opportunity. The gallery will be uploading images of my work soon, but in the meantime I’ll put them here for you to look at:
I’ve painted plenty of commissions in my time, but when my wife asks for a painting, it’s top priority! Here’s a glimpse of what’s been happening on my easel during the past couple of weeks. It’s taking a while, but it’s a labour of love…
And here’s the final piece! ‘It’s called ‘Tea for Two’.
A belated Happy New Year to you! Kooywood Gallery, Cardiff will be showing some small paintings from January 15th. For more details, visit www.kooywoodgallery.com
One of the paintings included is ‘Cock-a-Hoop’. I was honoured to accept a request by poet Jonathan Edwards to use this painting as the cover image for his heartfelt and unashamedly nostalgic collection of poems entitled ‘My Family and Other Superheroes’. What is even better is that Jonathan was awarded the 2014 Costa Poetry Prize, a fantastic achievement that now sees him shortlisted for the Costa Book of the Year.
It’s been great to see the national coverage aimed at Jonathan’s achievements, especially since every time they focus on the book, it’s got my painting on it!
