Bristol AAF

Oops, I accidentally published this post with just a picture and nothing else - sorry if this caused confusion. Anyway, I have a few invitations to the Bristol Affordable Art Fair Private View available (should there be someone out there who'd like to attend) on Thursday 14 May 2009 from 6-9pm. Each invitation admits 2 people. Please let me know asap so that I can get them in the post. Alternatively the invitation can be used instead to gain free admission to the Fair between Friday 15-Sunday 17 May. I also have quite a few invitations which allow half price entry for up to two people from the Friday - Sunday.


If you do go, please call on Gary & Sue at the Seascape Gallery stand (A9). They were in St Ives yesterday collecting work for the show and are hoping it's going to be as busy and successful as last year's event. Artists represented: Simeon Stafford, Irene McCann, Sheila Meeks, Lesley Ninnes, Siddy Langley, Jenny Wheatley, Julia Brooks, Jonathan Middlemiss, Danielle Spelman, Sophie Harding.

Bristol AAF, The Passenger Shed, Temple Meads.

November 2021 - Small paintings on board.

  November this year is fairly mild, quite wet and with more sunshine than we could have hoped for.  And in the absence of gales (for now) the trees still have their leaves and the colours are amazing.  The sea is spectacular at the moment too, with huge swells pounding ashore yesterday. Below are some paintings I completed earlier, scroll down to see more: Currently at Art Space Gallery, St Ives 'The Sea Brings Its Own Light' oil on primed board, 13.5 x 13.5 cm.

Collage two paintings 30 x60 cm

In this detail, the anaglypta, pink florist's cellophane and paint on canvas can be seen. Reddish/brown transparent glazing in the centre section and swirls of aqua opaque impasto on the right. This includes a piece of anaglypta from Carol Parsons painting class back in March, 2009? This particular piece of wallpaper has already been used to 'print paint to canvas'. Victoria Hilliard produces lovely ceramic pictures inspired by nature, including the portrayal of moths and butterflies. Would I have produced this collage if Tori were not a member of Art Space Gallery? Maybe not. Everything is 'grist to the visual mill' as far as artists are concerned. 'Floral - Pedestal' this painting just evolved. Fun, fun and more fun! 'Floral - Feel Amazing'. I love this artwork! My daughter's boyfriend bought her flowers, including old fashioned roses, which provided the inspiration for the flowers at the top of the painting and the cellophane wrapper
