Coast

Although not painting right now because I'm blogging (reading, commenting and posting actually, that's a bit decadent in the middle of the afternoon, don't you think?) I have been and am continuing to work on a painting which, with 3 others 'Aurora', 'Undercurrent 2008' and 'Colours of West Penwith' - see wall picture below - will be going to London at the beginning of May.

David Upton, who has links with St Ives and whose parents and grandparents live in the area, has asked Art Space Gallery to provide artwork for his new seafood restaurant 'Coast' in Camden, North London, which opens on 7 May 2009, with a grand launch planned for 19 May. Loosely based on the theme 'Coast', paintings by Art Space artists will hang on the walls of both levels and the stairwell of the restaurant. So if you're in the area after 7 May, why not pop in and have a look.

Have got to go now, to cut the grass - it's a jungle out there!

  1. Oh how I could come to your "grand launch." I will be there in spirit. And your pictures above (or should I say your "arrangement" above, and painting over to the right are easy on the eyes. Even your "painters mess" is beautiful art!

  2. Thanks for the comment Cathie - it's a real boost.

    Life in North Carolina sounds wonderful at the moment - beautiful, balmy, easy living weather.

  3. Wow, that sounds fantastic. Congratulations.
    Wish I could go but.. no.
    Sad, but no.
    Do we get to see any of the other paintings?

  5. If I can get the others to email their images - several of us are just finishing off paintings at the moment! - then they'll appear on the Art Space blog and website in the (hopefully) not too distant future.

  6. Your paintings are lovely and I just adore the photos of your art supplies. Such a pretty blog you have.
    Thanks for the sweet words on my own blog. I can't wait to get my etsy shop looking the way I really want it to.
