Now that Winter is Past, it’s time to look forward to the optimism of Spring. Invitations for my Spring exhibition are being sent out this weekend. There’s already been a great response to my new limited edition print titled “Grey Street, Snow Shower” with several copies already sold. There are only 95 prints in the edition and the image is available in 2 sizes from my Studio & Gallery in Ponteland or online.
The original painting will be on view for the preview weekend. Winter is Past, so it is time for my Spring Exhibition which starts on Saturday 10th March 9:30-5pm. The gallery will also be open on Sunday 11th 1:30-5pm. The exhibition continues until 31st March Tuesday-Saturday.
The release of the print is quite timely with the 175 year celebrations of the Theatre Royal this weekend. It promises to be a visual feast. The Theatre Royal does feature in this painting. It shows more of Grey Street, described as the finest curved street in Europe.
My eldest granddaughter Emily also stars in the snow scene wearing her red coat. When I launched my print titled “Theatre Royal in the Snow” back in 2008, (which also featured Emily) the edition of 95 sold out and the smaller preparation study was used as a Christmas Card that year by the Theatre Royal. There will be other new paintings on display during the exhibition. They will help us remember that Winter is Past and Spring is on its way.
