Lady MacBeth! That's right, if you're ever stumped over what to give the loved one in your life for Christmas, why not ask them? You might get some surprising answers! In my case it was a request for a version of Sargeant's portrait of Ellen Terry as the aforesaid Lady MacB . I didn't have much else on so I was happy to have a go and a phone snap of the result is on the left. I think I may decide to go medieval for the next set of paintings, so watch this space.
And just to end with a quick reminder that the History? Painting exhibition is on to the end of this week, and if there's any Chrimbo cash still burning a hole in your pocket you could always consider buying a painting.
In the meantime have a happy New Year!.
Merry Christmas, Joyeux Noel, Nadelik Lowen etc etc. And yes I know I haven't posted in almost two months. Mea Culpa.
Firstly the History? Painting exhibition is up at the Watermark Ivybridge and runs until Jan 5th. Very good it looks too and if you'd like to buy any of the paintings in the show drop me a line via the contact form or email to firstname.lastname@example.org and arrangements will be made. And a reminder that if you haven't done so already you can download the Free (yes, free!) exhibition guide here or if you have a smartphone or ipad or tablety device you can do so using the QR code displayed in the exhibition itself or, alternatively here.
Here's a plug for my Etsy Shop. Order in the next couple of days (before Sunday 21st Dec) and I will dispatch first class (for the standard postage rate) to reach you (hopefully) in time for the big day.
And finally, I know I should post something arty but bugger it! it's Christmas so here's something festive
Work in progress and other stuff that happens.
