23 November 2011

I have just returned from a long daytrip out to Edinburgh, to deliver new work to Bon Papillon for their new xmas show titled: ‘LUXE MIDWINTER’ opening this Saturday 26th November from 2-5pm.
A little cup of tease, oil on canvas, 20 x 20cm

Trevor and I turned up like a whirlwind at Bon Papillon, with my usual array of colurful bags full of art. There was quite a lot, so Ingrid had the daunting task of quickly deciding which pieces were best for the show. There will be about 19 pieces of mine in the show, ranging from £1395 to only £70, so a lot of pockets are catered for!

  There will also be work by two of my artist friends, Emma Mount who has submitted her fabulous pin-up painting called Kemper the Impervious, and Fiona Watson who is one of the top printmakers at Glasgow Print Studio  who has framed up ‘There’s a tattoo of you name across my soul’.
  There are of course, many other great artists showing including our lovely hostess, Ingrid Nilsson, who runs the gallery as well producing these imaginative paintings.

As well as popping along to see the art, it is well worth visiting for a delicious lunch or a warming hot chocolate and some of their excellent home-made cakes. A meal in themselves!
The show will run until Christmas Eve, then the gallery will be closed for the holidays until 13th January next year. Maybe see you there!
