Square Deal & Donated Picture Show

The annual Square Deal and Donated Picture Show opens at Norway Gallery, Mariners' Church, St Ives on Saturday 8 September, click here to see some of the many paintings that will be on sale - for just £50 each!  This event raises some much needed funds for St Ives Society of Artists and goes towards maintenance and eventual refurbishment of the building.


'Porthmeor Surge' is my contribution to the cause and is rendered in oil on 10 inch square deep edge canvas.  SOLD


I'm also contributing 'Man's Head & Clodgy' which is an over painted abstract from 2006, measuring 12 x 12 inches.  SOLD


The exhibition continues until 14 September 2012.  Click to enlarge, copyright Lesley Ninnes.
Have a good weekend everyone!

  2. Love the surge painting! Gives me the feeling of sea water sucking back, and you just know the next wave is going to be HUGE! I've finally got round to posting another blog on Winds of Change. Been very busy at my other blog http://gillmaccsphotos.blogspot.com
