Artwork of the Week
‘On Beinn a’ Ghlo’, Acrylic & Pastel, 2013, 80 x 80 cm
As you’ll see if you read the current blog, my mind is firmly on our forthcoming Courtyard Studios Open Weekend and as it suggests, it can be quite stressful getting everything organised. At such times however, I have to remind myself why I enjoy the event so much and why it is so good for my own practice and the Courtyard as a whole. The event is an excellent way to promote the Courtyard Studios as a centre for professional and quality art in the region as well as a great opportunity for visitors to view and buy the very latest work being produced here.
So then, with that in mind, I thought of this painting. It was bought by a lady and gentleman from Glasgow at the start of our Open Studios weekend last year and I’m very glad to say they visited my studio again a few months ago and are still enjoying this scene from Beinn a’ Ghlo.
I’m currently working on several new pieces which should be ready for this year’s event on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th October. Open: Saturday 4th, 11am – 5pm, Sunday5th 12 noon – 5pm. Entry free, all visitors welcome. I hope you can get along to see some of my new paintings.
