From the 13 April to 1 May. Please come along to The Tolbooth Arts Centre to see my new work… I’ve been incredibly busy and am very happy with the resulting paintings. Some of them have a mediterranean vibe, such as ‘Sandyhills Golf Course Kirkcudbright’ and ‘Port Patrick Harbour Fishing Boats.’ Must be the influence of the Gulf Stream climate. Kirkcudbright is a lovely town. Here is the link to view all the paintings online (the most recent paintings are at the top, right now there are 12 – including two oil on glass paintings.)
Please note that I will painting in the gallery from the 19th to the 28th April – that’s during the second and third week of my show. Here are the two most recent paintings, both oil on glass.
From the kirkcudbright.co.uk website:
‘The Tolbooth Art Centre provides visitors with an introduction to the story of the town’s artists’ colony. The Tolbooth dates back to 1629, and now provides gallery accommodation for the best of the Council’s painting collection including works by S.J. Peploe, Charles Oppenheimer, Jessie M. King, Lena Alexander, Robert Sivell and many more. The story of the Kirkcudbright artists is told through a 15 minute audio-visual show.
The studios on the upper floor are used by the current generation of artists and craftworkers, and the ground floor has a friendly café serving fresh coffee, teas and locally produced cakes and biscuits and a gift shop, retailing artists’ prints, paintings, crafts, art books and reproductions.’
