Diary – news and work in progress

Ice and Stravaigin

I’ve work in two shows at the moment:

My painting ‘Berg’ is showing at ‘Ice’ at Comar, in Tobermory, Isle of Mull.


‘Berg’, oil, acrylic and pastel on board, 45 cm x 45 cm

– and two new pictures are showing at Dunoon Burgh Hall‘s Pop-Up Shop’s show ‘Stravaigin’, as part of Cowalfest.



I’m delighted to have a small work – Souvenir Island – in Europa, at Transition Gallery, London. Preview tonight, opening from the 17th. 20160519_185727 (2)

Ghost Nets (detail), acrylic and graphite on board.

I’m delighted to have had a painting selected for this exhibition, in Kent, running from May the 6th to July the 24th 2016. ‘Ghost Nets’ will be among:

‘A variety of extraordinary works of art including lens based media, sculpture and performance art are used to cover powerful topics such as conflict, ecology, territory, migration, piracy, border disputes and the ebb and flow of oceans.’

The show opens tomorrow at Dunoon Burgh Hall! Runs to the end of April.

Meanwhile, I keep killing and resurrecting this picture. So far, it won’t live or die – must be a zombie painting …
