Since 1993 I have been very fortunate to sell many limited edition prints of Edinburgh. It was only fitting to include in the exhibition, a new original watercolour of Edinburgh in the Snow which is also available as a limited edition print with only 95 in the edition. The scene captures a typical bleak winter’s day in Auld Reekie. Once again, I’ve added a small child wearing a red coat to add that splash of colour.
This year, my 30th Anniversary since going self employed as a full time artist, I am holding a number of special exhibitions at various venues.
The current exhibition opened on Friday night at the Bob Abley Gallery at Spennymoor Town Hall. The exhibition runs 7th – 28th February and features 30 paintings that represent many of the subjects and places I have painted over the last 30 years.
Other subjects include some new original paintings of Newcastle, Italy and the Middle East. As I’m currently working on a series of portraits of members of City Church, Newcastle, I’ve also included some figurative paintings too.
The Bob Abley Gallery is a lovely well lit exhibition space so I’m delighted to have the opportunity to show so many of my paintings together throughout February.
