The exhibition is going really well at Tighnabruaich, seems to be a talking point with visitors and locals. At the moment I’m working on paintings for The Mallaig Gallery, Holroyds Gallery (Ballachulish) and Plockton Gallery, which will all be delivered soon, giving me a chance to get more inspiration from areas I love to paint. I’m also working on a few private commissions that come in at this time of year for weddings etc.......another busy month, in my Studio and The Harbour Gallery !!
25th July 2014.
All work for my Exhibition at Tighnabruaich Gallery - opening Saturday 26th, are now available to view, click on ’Original Works’. The exhibition showcases 30 New paintings focusing on Tighnabruaich and around Cowal.
17th July 2014.
Almost, nearly, finished the Tighnabruaich Exhibition....It has been fun painting, basically a 360 deg view around Tighnabruaich, attempting to find ’new’ views across the roofs, from the water and roadside vista.
Opening ’afternoon’ is Sat. 26th July from 2pm -6pm....knowing Andrew and Penny, it will be a great opening !
New work (30plus paintings)....will be posted on this site Thurs night.
As an artist, this month has been amazing !! Over 10 Commissions accepted this month, some amazing prospective paintings.....from The Hebrides to a ’National Commission’.
June was a Mad month......Torrance Gallery Exhibition was good, very happy with over 20 paintings sold at the end, remaining work will now be moved to The Harbour Gallery and beyond for the summer season.
Aswell as this, I’m starting new work on a ’Tarbert Series’ which should culminate in an exhibition in The Harbour Gallery later in the year.
Plus........New works for Christos (Glasgow),Seagull Gallery (Gourock), Holroyds (Ballachulish), Mallaig Art Gallery, Plockton Studio, Coastal Gallery (Campbeltown), Castle Gallery (Rothesay), also Henley and Cornish Galleries............Please dont ask me if I’m busy !!

Since the eye was removed in Nov last year, life has got better, certainly less pain and irritation. I will be going back in a few weeks to finish the fittings for the ’proper’ fake eye.
(June 2013. ’New’ fake eye fitted and adjusted....looks good! Headaches though !)
(May 2014. ’Dodgy Eye’ now part of life....- I either feel like I have been punched in the side of my head , or someones doing ’dental work’ in my eye. I’m told the nerve endings should ’calm’........over time.......this is a 24hr toothache in my eye socket ! Life goes on !!
Now showing paintings in The Corfu Gallery, Corfu Town. As a family, we rented a villa and I produced paintings for the gallery to sell and I will add work this year. We hope to have a small exhibition there in Oct 2014
Selling work in Jules8 Gallery, Puerto Pollensa. New work on display mid summer 2014
The Harbour Gallery has been open for almost 3 years now and has totally exceeded my expectations.Sales are up on projections across the board, with sales of my original work and the Steamer/Ferry timetables that are mounted up, proving popular.....A good mention in ’The Scottish Field’ as one of the top ten places to visit in Argyll !!
Keep visiting and tell your friends !!!
Pleased to announce the opening of my own Gallery......’The Harbour Gallery’ in Tarbert, Argyll. Opened its doors on Thurs 15th March and celebrated with an opening weekend on Sat 17th & 18th March, guests were invited to join us for a glass of wine to view new works by myself and a large selection of artists from Argyll and around the UK.
The gallery prides itself on the quality of New Original work and will refresh constantly with a chance of a first time viewing of newly completed works.
There are a varied selection of Framed and Mounted prints showcasing Scottish artists past and present, aswell as a unique portfolio of Vintage and Retro prints focusing on Travel and Advertising from around Scotland, with local interest from - Original Steamer Timetables to Original Cloth Maps and Antique Postcards of the area all professionally mounted and with the option at source - to frame.
We also showcase Jewellery, Ceramics, Glass and Sculpture from established and emerging artists.
This is a very exciting venture for myself and my family, I have been waiting for the right location in Tarbert and now its happened.
The Harbour Gallery website - www.theharbourgallery.com is now LIVE (March 2013 !!)
My Studio ’The Art Studio’ will remain as it is, the gallery is a totally new project in the centre of Tarbert - located on the corner of Harbour St / Campbeltown Rd, opposite the PO & CO-OP and next door to the Bank of Scotland, Fletchers deli and the ’top paper shop’......basically, where ’Woods Estate Agents’ was.....’The Harbour Gallery’ now is !!
See you for a viewing......
Over the next few months I will be working on paintings for Galleries around Scotland, England, Spain, Greece and Germany and my Solo exhibition at The Torrance Gallery, Edinburgh in June 2015. Galleries at this time of year are seeking new work all the time, yet a couple of galleries have already approached me for exhibition dates for 2016...I will keep you updated !
