Why not send a grey, wet and miserable Orkney print as a gift this year?  Share the love!

Exhibition at The Loft Gallery, South Ronaldsay, Orkney - August 2014

It seems an age since I updated my blog . . . that’s because it has been!  Almost all of this year has been spent trying to get the cottage into some semblance of shape before our Building Warrant expires and making dozens of paintings for my new show at The Loft Gallery on South Ronaldsay.
The show is titled ‘Near & Far’ – referring to the eternal dichotomy of representing those things dear to me on these islands; the close-up wonderment of the special species living here and the momentous land-and-sea-scapes containing them.  Most of the works are small-ish oils on board – a technique I am becoming more drawn to recently.

The show opened a couple of weeks ago and runs until September the 5th – please try and pop along if you’re in the area.  Here are a few images from the exhibition:
