Monday morning, nearly Christmas Sitting reading and drinking a first coffee by the stove Just retrieved the hyacinths ‘forcing’, from the cupboard, in the yellow bowl They always hold so much promise At this, their etiolated stage Like us, searching for the light All the blue and yellow Like a painting, perhaps I haven’t painted yet
As we wind down to the end of this year I am starting to review my works, and think about shows and placements for next year
These two in the image above were part of a large series of about 20 paintings, still ongoing, called ‘Who’s Watching’
It’s still possible that some of them might end up in Sag Harbor, Long Island, New York, as it was Mark of Mark Borghi Fine Art who encouraged me to make these large paintings, and had originally asked for them for his gallery for March this year, but with the ongoing difficulties with the Covid pandemic, that still hasn’t happened
They might go to Hambly&Hambly for a solo show in 2022, but again, I haven’t got dates for that either.
I have an art residency at CillRialaig in County Kerry starting on 8th January and another residency at Tyrone Guthrie in County Monaghan in June
My gallery, Hambly&Hambly in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, has a fabulous exhibition, HARK!
Celebrating the season with a beautiful selection of new works from me and of course many other brilliant artists from across the island of Ireland and further afield
To celebrate the season and to thank all my great followers, collectors and friends at Hambly&Hambly there is a very special offer available on these new works
The offer is to buy one of these two big pieces shown above (‘Tide’ and ‘Breathe’) at a special reduced seasonal price, and receive TWO of these smaller works below FREE as a gift and a thank you from us to you 🎄
