Skomer blues…

Yesterday I had another gorgeous day over on Skomer Island painting and researching for some big paintings that are in the pipeline. The bluebells and campion are at their very best now and it was a perfect day – overwhelmingly beautiful, almost too intense to work with!

Back in the studio now I am trying to get over the stunning blues and pinks and work on some of the ideas and inspirations with the benefit of a bit of distance.

Some of you know that Skomer holds a special place in my heart and I have been visiting, staying and painting on the island for 17 years now. I am thinking of running a painting course on the island in September. If you might be interested send me an email!

Exhibition in Swansea

Thanks to everyone who braved hold-ups on the M4 on Friday evening to come to the opening of our exhibition Western Elements at Taliesin Arts Centre, Swansea University.

Adam Buick, ceramicist (http://www.adambuick.com), Grahame Hurd-Wood, painter, Steve Robinson, glass artist (http://www.steverobinson.com), and myself at the opening.

Our very different work is linked by an exploration of the landscape around us and hangs together well as a show, it is a pleasure to be showing with these guys and exciting to get my work out of Maenclochog!
