New Work On Show; Wildscape Gallery, Stromness

I’ll be hanging a new exhibition of work at Wildscape Gallery, Stromness this week. We’ll officially open on Saturday 26th with mulled wine and discounts on original work so that should be an entertaining day. We’re also launching a new set of prints then – perfect timing for Christmas! There will be 30 paintings; here are some of them which will be on show:

The preceding evening is the Private View of the Pier Arts Centre’s Christmas exhibition – I have two pieces in the show this year. Looking forward to a glass of vino and a wander round an eclectic mix of work.

Finally, following a hectic weekend which entailed taking the overnight ferry from Orkney to Aberdeen, train to Inverkeithing and car to Crossgates where I inspected and subsequently collected our new (old) campervan – drove it around Edinburgh and south to North Berwick whence I collected the unsold paintings from the Seabird Centre then crashed out at darling sister’s place. 04:30 start and a fab drive through the awesome Highlands to arrive at Scrabster just before 11am in glorious weather. Boat across to Stromness was silky smooth and the short 17 mile drive from there to home in Evie rounded off a tiring but ultimately successful weekend.

The new mobile studio/Sal's runabout

So – now the sun is shining and I have an hour spare, I’m off out to try out my new Swarovski ATM80HD. Mmmmmmm – report later.

I have van envy! We would love a camper. I couldn't choose a favourite from your paintings - I really love them all. x

These are beautiful wildlife paintings. The additional text is a nice touch.

Yes I'm envious of your campervan too.
