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.

Stage et Cours

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.

teaching at the studio

teaching201601sm
The classes have started with laughter and enjoyment and we have covered working with tone and disciplining the line. It is a haven of peace and concentration away from the madness of the world! Please contact me if you want to come along. Thursdays are possible.

who buys: statistics

Just for fun thought I’d analyse my sales over the last 7 years.
Of course I only know the clients that I have personally been involved with. Information on those who buy the paintings that are sold through galleries is very sketchy, but I have included what I know. One interesting phenomena is that someone who buys one often becomes a collector, which is really wonderful. This year someone bought five, a couple bought six, someone added a third to their collection. Most usually it is a ‘coups de couer’ when someone was not thinking of buying but spontaneously wants to own a painting they fall in love with. The prices have ranged from from 120€ to 2000€.

French buy the most (not surprisingly as I exhibit in France)
British come a close second ( again my contacts are mostly Britsish and we have a lot of British tourists in the Lot)
Americans are next, about half the number of British ,sales are through galleries mostly
The other larger group are Dutch clients
In single figures their are Danish, German and Belgiums and a gentlemam from Kuwait
