Studio Art Show

Other news– Both my following paintings have been accepted at Small Works North America (curated by the Greenwich Village Workshop Gallery). Smallworks is open for voting; there are some very nice images to be seen there, and if you wish you can set up your own favourites in a gallery and give them a ‘gold’, ‘silver’ or ‘bronze’ vote. Enjoy!

Relish Elgin’ is a wonderful mini magazine devoted to all the neat things in our own county (food, culture, recreation); I have been interviewed as feature artist for the upcoming issue which should be published shortly.

After the ‘home show’ I’ll be hunkering down at the easel again while the snow flies. It will be a relief, as so many images in my mind have been demanding to be painted. I hope to be posting here through the winter as these come to life.

Happy Trails, Cheers,

Art quotes’ for the day:

Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple, learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen. (John Steinbeck)

Every day I discover more and more beautiful things. It's enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it. (Claude Monet)

Art should be something like a good armchair in which to rest from physical fatigue. (Henri Matisse)

Art is a pigment of your imagination. (Darcy Gerdes)
