Artists everywhere need support to carry on their practice. This could be through a purchase of their work, a print or simply an art card. Making a purchase can help and artist fee the confidence to develop their practice work further. Over these last few days at Arundel Gallery Trail, I may not have madeContinue reading “Supporting an artist by a small purchase”
It’s been a busy week at Arundel Art Trail. Just two more days to go. I’ve been sharing my space with four other great artists, and the Secret Artist Auction. This auction gives an opportunity to bid for a painting of their choice, with the knowledge that half the revenue goes to the artist andContinue reading “Penultimate day at Arundel Gallery Trail”

Linda Barton-Towers is one of the other regular artists exhibiting in the venue. Her popular, powerful seascapes are very striking and expressive.
Day 3 of the art trail, and, although we are very quiet (thanks to the scorching weather and Wimbledon tennis finals), we have had some lovely conversations with very interested art lovers and some sales. I’ve taken the opportunity to do some painting in my space. This is great way of engaging with interested peopleContinue reading “Bognorcoastalarttrail”

A new year brings fresh challenges but the same issues of finding the right balance between working to pay the bills and creating art work. However this year, I feel I may be able to find more time to create the art work needed for exhibition and sales. I hope the new owners of theContinue reading “2022 – new year, same challenges”
It’s been an extremely challenging year for us all so, like many others, I am taking a break until 2022; having said that I will probably pop into the studio midweek to escape and finish some work off! I have some plans forming for the New Year, although family health issues will take president overContinue reading “Happy Christmas”
Among paintings for sale at Clifton Road Gallery, I have mounted original drawings and Giclee prints available. The drawings have been taken directly from field sketch books and show my art process; mark making, composition, perspective, line, space and interplay between objects. Plan to make more drawings available for purchase in the near future. IContinue reading “Drawings & Giclee prints”

Been busy sorting out work for the upcoming exhibition, and planning to get some prints done of my paintings and drawings. it’s all go…
I have a new group exhibition to get ready for in October. Currently finishing off some large paintings, one of which will be displayed here, along with prints of drawings and paintings.
Finding new venues to exhibit and sell is often a challenge. I’m now additionally selling my small paintings at The Craft Cabin, Chalcraft Lane, Bognor Regis PO21 5TS. A lovely, unique creative venue, full of crafters and artists selling their work to the general public.
Always important to refresh your current exhibitions if you get a chance. Prevents your display feeling stagnant to potential buyers who have come along more than once. Sometimes a balancing act because you don’t want to take a painting off the wall that has attracted someone to come and visit again; but if your showContinue reading “Refreshing exhibitions”

Been spending the last few weeks looking after myself, physically and mentally. Plenty of physical exercise (walking and running), spending quality time with my wife, relaxing with a book or a movie, and painting and drawing when it felt right. Sometimes in our lives it pays to take a step back to evaluate what youContinue reading “Looking after yourself”
Fresh paintings have been added to my gallery page. Also creating lots more paintings in readiness for exhibition when UK shops re-open after the COVID pandemic. I also have time for commissions. Please message me if interested. Stay safe and happy x
Well we now start a new year, and face head-on new challenges and adventures. COVID-19 is still here and growing as I write, and UK is now no longer a member of the EU. The gallery and craft shop I sell through cannot open because of Tier 4 measures. So I now have to concentrateContinue reading “New year, new challenges”
