Exhibition Invitation – A Glass of Wine?
Yes I’ve been busy painting nearly every day in the big old shed I’m using as a studio. You can see the rather disgraceful mess here for yourselves. With the further postponement of the Auckland Art Show until December at best and the Covid situation up there currently, very few of my paintings have travelled north recently. This has benefitted my exhibition at the Artel Gallery in Otaki which will run for the duration of the Kapiti Arts Trail which kicks off this coming weekend 6/7 and continues through to 13/14 November.
If you are within driving distance, come check out the paintings hung – open every day from the 6th to the 14th and perhaps join us for a glass of wine after 4pm on the weekends. In the meantime see also the advance images of the paintings on my website in the Available Gallery and on Artel’s website as well at www.artel.net.
And if you have ever wanted to know why I am usually seen with a bandana around my hair it’s not only to keep those hanging locks out of my eyes but also to stop me running my oil-painty hands through my hair because a few hours later, the only way to get the paint out is to CUT it out. Not a good look. The painting shown below ‘Flare For Matariki’ is now finished and already up on the wall at Artel.
