First Exhibition of 2015
I don't need much of an excuse to nip over to the lakes as we did last week to deliver a set of three new oils to Northern Light gallery in Keswick. The snow dusted mountain tops against a dark horizon has given me inspiration for my next painting.
Ben Haslam of Hallgate Gallery in Hexham has invited me along with a very select few to exhibit at Crook Hall Durham starting in early January. The exhibition is titled 'Wild Weather North'.
New Gallery for 2015
The Art Cafe in Whitby have noticed my work and have kindly invited me to exhibit with them as part of thier spring collection. They have expressed a particular interest in my atmospheric seascape paintings and pots. It is always excitng to show my work to a new audience.
New Ceramics page on my web site
I have set up a new web page for my ceramic work.
Among the work shown are a range of coil built seascape pots. The glaze colour has evolved from my seascape paintings. Raw clay has the colour of dry sand with a toasted warm edge mimiking wet sand at the waters edge, white through blue green splashed glaze suggesting the movement and depth of sea water. Figures on the lids have narrratives relating to myths and fairytales.
