Bath Society of Artists113th Annual Open Exhibition

Here are the two paintings submitted to Bath Society of Artists' 113th Annual Open Exhibition   and I'm very pleased that the first (see below) has been accepted and now hangs, ready for the preview on Friday and exhibition opening on Saturday 24th March. in the Victoria Gallery, Bath .  Click the link above to find out more.  Selection was postponed until Monday 19th from the previous Saturday due to heavy snow - a brief return of the 'Beast from the East' and the delay means I don't have an invitation image to display on this post. 'Storm Eleanor Aftermath' oil on board, 13.5 x 13.5 cm.  SOLD Although disappointed that 'White Surf and Tide Line' wasn't accepted (see below).  Chosen because of the contrast of colour, atmosphere and conditions that occur, often on the same beach as those captured in 'Storm Eleanor Aftermath' - literally in moments in this part of the world - I can well understand the difficulties

Bigger Oil Paintings For A Change.....

Much larger artworks relatively than the square 13.5 cm oils on board usually displayed on this blog, the earliest of these paintings were commenced in the last weeks of 2017 and completed early this year.  Two were inspired by weather conditions generated by Storm Eleanor, which hit during the night of 3rd January, 2018.  And the heavy textures of 'The Clean Wave' result from the reworking of an earlier artwork. Rendered in oil on canvas, each one is set in a chunky white painted wood frame. The first is currently displayed in the window of Art Space Gallery, St Ives 'Storm Eleanor, the Morning After' oil on canvas, framed, 40.5 x 40.5 cm.  SOLD The following paintings can be viewed at Beyond the Sea Gallery, Padstow during the Easter holidays.
