‘Winter Miniatures. Indigo Sky’. Mixed media on 3×3″ wood. Rose Strang 2019

My new series; Winter Miniatures, launches on December 8th next month.

For this series I’m painting around 40 semi-abstract pieces on wood, inspired by the textures and colours of winter.

A new commission

(Private commission). ‘Ardban Light’. Mixed media on 23×16 inch wood panel. Rose Strang 2019

Above – a private commission for a friend from the US, who kindly commissioned me after seeing some of my paintings. It’s now winging its way to its new home! The buyer of the painting will also use this image for a CD cover featuring his and others music, which I’ll post more about here once he’s received the painting and goes ahead with that!

The theme was dawn rising after a long night – a sense of hope. I based it on my paintings of Ardban earlier this year, hence the painting title- ‘Ardban Light’.

If you’re interested in commissioning paintings, here’s a previous post I wrote about commissions – Link to commissioned paintings. If the subject inspires me I’m happy to take on a new commission, time allowing.

I’ll soon be posting updates on painting progress for a little series I’m creating called Winter Miniatures. The exhibition will feature semi-abstract winter colours in mixed media on 3×3″ wood blocks. More info on the upcoming exhibition at my studio, which launches 8th December 2019 Here

 

‘Ardban’ – exhibition launch

My new series for a solo exhibition – ‘Ardban’ – launches on Friday 18th October at the Limetree Gallery in Fortwilliam (not to be confused with Limetree Gallery Bristol for whom I’m creating new works for their Christmas exhibition this year!).

A few photos to show framed painting and to show scale …

 

I look forward to traveling up to Fortwilliam for the exhibition launch – all welcome to attend, it’s open to the public and starts at 7pm, 18th October (exhibtion continues to 30th November).

The address is Lime Tree An Ealdhain Gallery, The Old Manse, Achintore Road, Fort William, PH33 6RQ.

I’ve been fighting off a cold as well as painting all week so I’m too puggled (old Scots word for tired) to write more today, but here are two more videos (by Adam Brewster, thanks Adam!) of painting on the beautiful beach of Ardban (one showing that it can be sunny, the other showing that sometimes you can dispense with brushes). Thanks again to Donald Ferguson for arranging this amazing holiday – I look forward to going back there again!

Ardban Series

‘Early Evening. Ardban’. Mixed media on 31×22″ paper. Rose Strang 2019

Today’s finished paintings for my upcoming exhibition at Limetree Lime Tree An Ealhain Gallery, in Fortwilliam, which opens this year on the 18th October.

You can view all the paintings so far Here (there will be ten in total). If you’re interested in reserving any of these paintings, please contact Limetree Fortwilliam at info@limetreefortwilliam.co.uk

Most of these paintings were painted in situ on the amazing peninsula of Ardban near Applecross on the west coast of Scotland. I’m finishing the rest in the studio which is less idyllic but more practical at least – here’s a video showing the wild conditions! …

Resipole, Ardnamurchan

The exhibition launch at the Resipole Gallery was fun and convivial, and Ardnamurchan was beautiful as always. (above – ‘Sanna Bay, Seaweed’, below, photos from the Resipole) ..

 

 

 

 

The exhibition continues until 28th June. All artworks on this link, also contacts for the gallery if you have any queries about the paintings: https://www.resipolestudios.co.uk/rose-strang

I went up there with a few friends and we stayed on the beach at Ardtoe in the Ardnamurchan peninsula – midgy but lovely.

Some photos –  in the afternoon, sunset then dawn…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Continuing the castles and mythology theme for the Planets Series, we visited Castle Tioram which, though very overcast, looked mythical as ever, more so perhaps. Bad weather suits the west coast and highlands! These luscious pink rhododendrons are everywhere in May and June on the West Coast …

 

 

 

We sheltered in my favourite hotel – the Glenfinnan Hotel at Loch Sheil…

 

 

 

And lastly, some photos taken while we drove through Glencoe – it looks iconically Glencoe-esque in this weather …
