From March 1st I’ll be travelling up north to the Cairngorms to visit my sister. While there I’ll begin a new series of paintings to celebrate spring.
It’s going to be beautiful up there at this time of year – still plenty of snow and ice, but also snowdrops and rivers in full flow as the spring thaw begins.
The paintings will be available from around mid-March and I’ll post them here as they develop. Usually I’ll create some sketches in situ, then develop paintings in my studio at home, so I’ll send a couple of blog posts while up north (depending on internet connections!) then more on my return to Edinburgh.
Early next week I meet with Richard Demarco at Summerhall to discuss plans for the portrait I completed earlier this year (info Here). It feels really good to get this year’s projects up and running – I’ll post all updates and new paintings very soon…
In the meantime, if you’re in either Edinburgh or Suffolk, my work is on show at the Long Melford Gallery, Suffolk, and I have one painting (sold) in the SSA Open (Scottish Society of Artist’s annual exhibition at the RSA building on the mound, Princes Street, Edinburgh). The SSA show is well worth a visit, among the many strong works there it’s also great to see some excellent artwork representing artists from the Hebrides, through the Ann Lantair Gallery in Stornaway, Lewis.
