One of my new paintings was accepted for the annual Winter Exhibition at the Meffan, a popular group show of work by Scottish artists.
The exhibition of artwork and crafts in Spittalfield, Perth & Kinross was a resounding success. In early September our group SEVEN welcomed over 400 visitors to the charming village hall. Paintings, linoprints, bronze sculptures, ceramics, hand turned wooden bowls, pebble/driftwood pictures and fragrant organic beauty products garnered admiring comments, sales were made and commissions placed. We put a lot of time and energy into this event – interesting conversations and the satisfied faces of our visitors made it all worthwhile.
Another one of my paintings prepared for Perthshire Open Studios 2016. It is a still life, called Candlelight Dinner. I don’t place items for a still life in front of me when I paint, I remember or invent them and arrange them so that they tell a story. The viewer is invited to find their own stories when looking at the image.
