I’m sure it’s of no interest to you but I blagged myself some free chicken today just by being nice. Had it in a sandwich. Thought it was worth mentioning…
So anyway, just wanted to say the Easter Art Exhibition in the Higher Bridges Gallery, Enniskillen kicks off next week. My portrait of the great Patrick Moore will be on display this year. I’m really proud of it and glad I did it. I’m sure like countless others, i was left completely deflated when he died and painting him actually helped and made me feel good about the effect he has had on me for all of these years, a feeling that will stay with me for the rest of my life. Thank you Patrick for showing me the stars.
The exhibition opens next Thursday (28th March) at 8pm where there will be a whole host of food I’ve no interest in eating (cheese!) and runs till 27th April. Looking forward to seeing what everyone brings along.
I’ve just finished the first of a new series of twisty fairytale type paintings and it seems popular, judging by the interest it is getting on my facebook page. I have to thank everyone who has liked and commented on it, it has been the biggest reaction I’ve ever received for a painting. It’s reassuring because this is the kind of thing I love to paint and am already planning many more of a similar nature.
The painting is called “The Heart Of The Woods” and as soon as I get it professionally photographed, prints will be available in my shop. (EDIT: Available now!)
