Friday 12th April 2019Gallery B and B

Alison and I are now offering B and B from two newly-created rooms above the gallery - the Indian Room and the Country Room - which share a private shower room.
 

The Country Room is a result of Alison's love of collecting country-style vintage pieces and the Indian Room is full of artefacts that we have brought back from the Himalayas. My artworks are shown in both bedrooms. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the long, south-facing garden behind the gallery. The building work, by Prudhoe’s Gary Watson, has just been finished, and we love the bespoke handmade doors, windows and shutters. 

 

Alison serves up a superb full Northumbrian breakfast, or you can choose smoked salmon and scrambled eggs or fresh, continental breakfast.

 

Prudhoe has plenty of restaurants, cafes and pubs to visit in the evenings, from Ball’s restaurant and Gloria’s Italian to Ginevra; Café No 22; Aramee and Tony’s Bombay Lounge. Both rooms have Wi-Fi, TVs, mini fridges and tea/coffee making facilities - and pets are welcome.

Thursday 05th July 2018Inspirations: Andrew Wyeth – Wind from the Sea

There’s a certain poignancy to Andrew Wyeth’s work that draws me to it. He’s a supreme technician, working in watercolour and tempura. He can capture the ephemeral fragility of a scene in one frozen moment.
 
 
Wyeth will spend a long time at certain locations. I love how he sees a building, or the movement of a breeze, and how he puts his paintings together. I discovered him at art school and his work still resonates with me.

Thursday 24th May 2018Gallery Garden

Gallery visitors are often curious about the garden behind the building, and Alison and I spend a lot of time there. Alison tends to the flowers and I look after the vegetables, berries and the greenhouse. This May has been perfect for sitting outside in the evenings, and my art students occasionally sit out on the patio too, in their breaks. I've had to relearn the mechanics of running a greenhouse and em enjoying growing so much of our own food from the garden.
 
We grow flowers, chives, mint, rosemary, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, gooseberries, blackcurrants and much more from the sunny plot and also have a variety of seating areas to catch the best light. Sometimes on quiet Sundays, I leave a 'Working in the Garden' sign on the gallery door, and visitors can seek me out there.

Friday 30th March 2018Two Years Since Official Gallery Opening

It‘s two years since the official opening of my Prudhoe gallery - so much has happened since then. Thanks to so many of you for your support - Alison, family, students, friends, neighbours and social media supporters.
 
 
Highlights have been showing at Ripon Cathedral and with the Royal Watercolour Society in London, visiting the Himalayas, Tuscany and France, and the paintings that followed - and several commissions. Appearing as a guest on Look North to give photography advice and judge the photos for their calendar was also an experience (or two) and great publicity for the gallery.
 
Thank you again.

Thursday 15th March 2018A Tuscan Cellar - Sequence of Painting

It's interesting to see the gradual development of this painting of a Tuscan cellar here, from start to (almost) finished. I've enjoyed working on it and have often been up at  four in the morning lately to finish it. This is a slightly unusual medium for me, because of the use of pencil, alongside the watercolour I often work in. This painting will soon be available as a print on my website.
 

Thursday 07th September 2017Paul Stangroom Gallery on Look North

Very different and pleasurable afternoon in the gallery yesterday. Paul Mooney, Look North weather presenter, spent the afternoon here filming for the show. Paul asked me to judge the August Look North Weather Calendar page. He also asked me to tell him my life story in 30 seconds - not an easy one. He filmed the gallery, and also watched me paint, and work with students. I believe it will be screened either tonight or Monday. Let me know what you think.
 
 
Paul lives in Prudhoe himself and was very interested to see inside the gallery. He made filming a much more pleasant process than I expected. Filming took around three hours, and all of this will be condensed into just a few minutes' footage on TV.
