Christmas cards - ran out of time!

My homemade Christmas cards this year should have featured a handsome little bird who regularly appears on the wonderful Facebook page of the 'Friends of Portheras Cove'  (read more below)

Lovely watercolours mixed



"People from the villages of Pendeen and Morvah have cherished this part of the wild Cornish coast for many generations. The Friends of Portheras Cove are regular users of the beach and sea in the cove, who wish to keep it safe and clean for locals,visitors, and wildlife.
Those who know Portheras cove not only appreciate its almost unspoilt beauty, but also respect its dangers. There are strong rip tides, and at times a fierce under-tow here, not to mention sharp metal fragments of the shipwrecked ship The Alacrity, which ran aground here in 1963. Please take care if visiting, check tide times, and be aware of heavy swells and strong currents.
The cove is inaccessible to vehicles, and can only be reached by those folk who are willing to amble along the coastal pa…

ING Discerning Eye exhibition 2015

ING Discerning Eye exhibition, Mall Galleries, 12 - 22 November, 2015 organised by Parker Harris, sponsored by ING Commercial Banking
2015 Selectors: Artists:Emma BridgewaterNicole Farhi,Collectors: Larry Lamb,Stephen SnoddyCritics:Stephen Doherty,Steve Pill
The Mall Galleries provide an excellent venue for a show like Discerning Eye, which encompasses six displays presented by its selectors and the dynamic Discerning Eye Drawing Bursary shortlisted works.  I visited the exhibition on the first morning of opening and discovered that two of my paintings had been chosen by Nicole Farhi and one by Larry Lamb!  

The standard and range of work on show is awesome and I spent a happy couple of hours just looking and admiring the artistic diversity, fantasizing over what I would buy if money and space were no object.  Given that wall hung artworks must not exceed 20 x 20 inches/50 x 50 cm, the restriction doesn’t confer boring uniformity of size and the collections incorporate a pleasing mix o…

'Kind Porthmeor' and other small paintings on board

A few more paintings completed recently.  It's been nice to have more time - also to do other things, such as walking with like minded people along the beautiful Gannel Estuary, Newquay yesterday and enjoying recent clear skies.  A reward for night time wakefulness, when three shooting stars were spotted - yes of course I made three wishes!
