Exhibition 1 – 16 December 2018

Everything in this house tells a story

Our house, our house and homes we dream of, hotels we stay in and chateaus that haunt our dreams are important. Everything in them and every hand that has touch the walls and crafted the building itself is revealed. I am fascinated by the human revealed by the interiors. I am alos transported by the ever changing light and shadow, the play of colours and surfaces and that is what I try and draw and paint. There may be candles and coffee alongside the artwork, come and visit , find the galery in a hotel particulaire in medieval puy l’eveque. The vernissgae is saturday evening and the paint is still wet on some of the paintings.

Notre maison, notre maison et les maisons dont nous rêvons, les hôtels dans lesquels nous restons et les châteaux qui hantent nos rêves sont importants. Tout ce qui est en eux et chaque main qui a touché les murs et conçu le bâtiment lui-même est révélé. Je suis fasciné par l’humain révélé par les intérieurs. Je suis également transporté par le changement de lumière et d’ombre, le jeu de couleurs et de surfaces et c’est ce que j’essaie de dessiner et de peindre. Il se peut qu’il y ait des bougies et du café à côté des œuvres d’art, venez visiter, retrouvez la galerie dans un hôtel particulier du puy l’eveque, un village médiéval. Le vernissage est samedi soir et la peinture est encore humide sur certaines des peintures.

instagram and autumn

As I am sitting in the exhibition I have some time on my hands and I have opened an instagram account and organised the dates for the autumn courses in my studio, These are one days practise either paint or a 3 hour session of drawing. It is in my studio in the Lot,  if you want to know the details please contact me.

I will have to see about the instagram – a new world open up!

Haras, near Lectoure

The inspiration for this painting was a visit two years ago to the Haras of a friend, there was all the paraphernalia of riding, horses and family in a lovely stone building. The life was both inside and outside, the light outside beckoned…..

Exhibition at Belaye 46140 South West France and I’ll be there every Sunday afternoon plus during the masterclasses in the church. An excellent afternoon out.

mysterious alley

In Albi, there is an alleyway where you tread in the steps of many who went before. I was glad there was electric light as well as daylight, an interesting space and atmosphere to experience. I love all the different textures and the many directions the light comes from.
This is a small oil on board 40 x 30 cm.
