… happily working on the Saltmarsh series. Well, sometimes I’m happy, other times I’m cursing with frustration! 

Today was a calm, happy painting day.

Some of these works are for my upcoming solo show at Creake Abbey, North Norfolk, where Fineline Frames are hosting a selection of my work (which they have beautifully framed). It runs from 5th September onwards for the month.

Meanwhile, I’ve been invited by a contemporary Edinburgh venue, The Sutton Gallery on Dundas Street in the vibrant New Town district, to show four works, three of which are from the new Saltmarsh series. These will be on view as part of their mixed summer show, which runs from 4th to 29th August 2015 and coincides with the Edinburgh Festival.
