Big Frames




I visited my framer Geraint earlier this week to have a look at the frames he has made for my two recent figures-in-the-landscape compositions.

I'm really pleased with the simplicity and quality of these frames. We made a decision to keep them minimal – and Geraint has used beautiful polished wood 'tray' frames. The thinness of these frames complements the fineness and delicacy of the lines within the paintings.

These paintings have now been carefully crated up, along with three others – and are sailing today on the Scillonian III to St Marys, after which they'll make a further boat trip to Tresco, where they'll be exhibited next month.

If you'd like to see prices and a catalogue for the show contact Gallery Tresco.

Salisbury Opening




The Salisbury Breast Cancer LIFE show officially opens today at midday, although it has actually been welcoming visitors since last weekend.

There'll be a silent auction to raise money for the Salisbury Hospital Stars Appeal. This includes a beautiful handmade necklace, designed and donated by Davide Reale of Reale Jewellers.

I'll be there from about 2pm – 4pm. All are welcome.
