My entry to the 167th Royal West of England Academy show…selected but not hung…available via their online shop. It’s a painting of Cottage number 1 at the artist’s retreat in Cill Rialaig County Kerry, Ireland.
This painting was my entry to the inaugural Wales Contemporary Competition, the show is hosted at the Waterfront Gallery in Milford Haven and travels to the Mall Galleries in London November 4th till 10th.
My solo show at the Doorway Gallery in Dublin is coming to an end. Many thanks to all for your support, it’s been very successful. Looking forward to another show at the gallery in February 2021.
I delivered some fresh work to Ffin-y-Parc Gallery in Llanrwst for the upcoming show opening 26th May 2019. There are 17 new pieces. The works are all up on the website now…https://welshart.net/exhibitions/79/works/
A residency in Cill Rialaig, (Co. Kerry, Ireland) usually proves to be a productive time for me, although I usually arrive with the intention of sitting back and taking stock. Port Magee is not far away, a good opportunity to draw some working fishing boats.
I’m going to be teaching “Charcoal Workshops” beginning in Narberth on 1st October 10am – 2pm Mondays, and in Aberystwyth on Tuesdays 6 – 9pm. Early Bird booking discount till 23rd Sept. We’ll be taking charcoal to places it shouldn’t go(!) and getting messy along the way.
Resolving a painting is not like a straight line graph. These are a couple of pieces that were eventually lost, i.e. painted over, all part of the process.
I sometimes wonder to which county in Ireland I would go, if I went. Ultimately maybe the remotest would be the best choice, i.e. Donegal. Cruit (pronounced “Critch”) is an island off Donegal and, although I’ve not been on the island it looks like my idea of paradise.
