I really enjoyed the Gallery Ten exhibition ‘WEST the west coast and beyond’ today. Beautifully curated by gallery owner Paul Musgrave – I thought the pieces went very well together.

I’m not quite sure where I’m going with these drips but I’m liking the effects which aren’t possible on a 5×5″ scale




The above paintings in progress are the first in a series to be included in the July exhibition at the Whitespace Gallery.

In the meantime, WEST; The West Coast and Beyond is showing this Saturday between 2 – 4pm, hope to see you there! PV-combo-wb

It’s going to be an interesting day, and afterwards the Leith Late festival will be featuring various exhibitions and live events..
