I’ve been exhibiting at the Victoria Fearn Gallery for many years now. Over that time, I’ve exhibited in various group shows and joint shows, but now that I now work from home and don’t have my own gallery to deal with I was delighted to accept Victoria’s invitation to have a solo show.
I painted some new work – here’s Pwll Deri
and revisited a couple of others – looking towards Strumble from Mathry, Abereiddy Watchtower.
winter walk along the estuary is my most recent painting
We had a lovely preview evening where I met several of Victoria’s ‘regular’ customers and also some old schoolfriends and opera singing friends. Not only did we have a very enjoyable evening, but I’m pleased to report a few red dots
I also sent Victoria thirty mini paint sketches on canvas of dogs – mostly collies – as this is a project I’ve been working on this year. I’ve painted my own dogs and those of many friends. I have even accosted total strangers and asked their permission to paint their dogs. A few of the sketches are dogs which have been rescued by Galgos del Sol in Spain who work incessantly rescuing galgos (Spanish hunting dogs – greyhounds) and podencos.
This is Pablo.
Many of the paintings ended up in my little book, Mostly Collies, and you can see several of them below.
