I've now returned to my native Derbyshire to paint, give demonstrations and teach classes and workshops.
I'm working on a series of paintings of waterfalls in Derbyshire, continuing the waterfall theme that began when I lived on the Isle of Skye.
I have some smaller originals for sale at Skyeworks (Portree, Isle of Skye), and cards, prints and originals at SkyeMakers (Dunvegan, Isle of Skye), locally some originals and prints at Leabrooks Arts Complex and Cromford Gallery, both in Derbyshire.
Highlights of the year:
Selection of one of my larger works for the Harley Open. "Marsco framed" sold from the exhibition.
Exhibitions at Leabrooks Arts Complex and Cromford Gallery, both in Derbyshire.
Continued support and encouragement from fellow artists at Leabrooks Arts Forum and beyond.
Progress with the book.
Highly Commended in the Artist Category of The Artist and Leisure Painter Open. Painting "Sparkling Waters of the Cuillin" (as seen recently on my stand at Patchings Festival) can be seen on Painters Online, and on my facebook page.
As the school holidays begin it's time to think about those gifts for Christmas (sorry, but it's really not far away my paintings take time); paintings, lessons or gift vouchers for either can be obtained.
