First, apologies to any who are following this blog by email, I inadvertently sent out an extremely dull list of previous exhibitions to you all – I thought there was a way I could sneak it onto the site without everyone getting an email, I was wrong! However, this next bit you might be interested in:
Auction of paintings:
It is a fact that I have TOO MANY paintings! And since some of these are no longer in frames, they never get seen any more, they just languish in plan-chest purgatory. So I am having a little auction of four of them, beginning yesterday, on Valentine’s day, and ending a week later. The day was especially appropriate to one of them: ‘A Romantic Picnic, Spoiled by Mermaids’, which is what gave me the idea. To this I’ve added the very naughty ‘A Rude Intrusion’, the exceptionally silly can-caning demons in ‘Infernal Gallop’ and ‘The Fairy Mirror’ – macabre but strangely not inappropriate to the day, either. They are all quite large paintings (sorry, the Mermaids one is a little too large to post overseas), and all in excellent condition, they have simply been removed from their frames.

These paintings were finished between about 2005 and 2010, so they deserve a little airing here I think. Looking back for these images has cheered me as I find that a great deal of paintings that I did back then I have indeed sold… but the cupboard is still a little full for all that.
