Tuesday 20th August 2019Quarry Man's Cottage, Carrara

Hi It was late October when Alison and I spotted this cottage in Tuscany, in the quarry from which Michelangelo bought his marble. It was a bright day, extraordinary in October, according to the locals, and the light was outstanding. This little house has survived several devastating earthquakes.
 
 
 
This is one of six new originals showing from next week in my gallery, and is also available as a print.

Tuesday 20th August 2019Turkish Window

‘Turkish Window’ was painted quite recently – though I worked from a photograph I took when I was visiting Dacca with Alison a while ago. A memory of a place can nag at me until I paint it, and this was such a case.
 
 
 
The landscape in Turkey was dotted with small farmhouses for seasonal workers and this abandoned cottage, with its glimpse of a view, compelled me to paint it. This is part of six new paintings that I am showing in the gallery from next week. 'Turkish Window' is also available as a print.

Tuesday 20th August 2019Limestone Brae

This atmospheric building also featured in my painting 'Old Barn', which I painted some 10 years ago. The room with that window in it in this building was still intact when I saw it last. This image is one that has stayed with me and in fact I was interested in buying this house at one point.
 
 
 
This painting is available as an original watercolour and a limited edition print and you can see it in my gallery from next week.

Saturday 27th July 2019My First Prudhoe Art Trail

 I very much enjoyed the first Prudhoe Art Trail, and the businesses all along Front Street really got behind it. Dozens of people visited the gallery every day and walked along the trail, enjoying paintings, wood turnings, glass and sculpture displayed in many of the shops and cafes.
 
 
Prudhoe Painters
 
Thank you Claudia Quayle, artist, for the photos of Prudhoe painters in my gallery. Claudia is on the right of the photograph below of the launch event.  The other photos feature artists in other Prudhoe shops and cafes.
 
We hope that this will become an annual event in the town.

Friday 12th July 2019Prudhoe's First Art Trail, 13 - 20 July, Tomorrow!

Prudhoe's first Art Trail begins tomorrow, showcasing both artists from in and around Prudhoe and Front Street's many independent businesses.
 
This article in the Journal tells you more and features Claudia Quayle's painting. The gallery is acting as hub to the event and we hope it will be one of many!

Monday 08th July 2019Planning Prudhoe Art Trail

 
I am very pleased to be taking part in Prudhoe's very first Art Trail, 13 - 20th July.
 
The public can walk all along Front Street and see the artworks in the shops, library and cafes.
 
 
My gallery at 45 Front Street is acting as the hub of the event, providing information, maps, meetings with artists such as Claudia Quayle, and also selling artworks. Claudia's painting is below.
 
All artworks in the Trail are for sale and all artists are based in or around Prudhoe. The gallery will be staffed 10 - 4 every day. The event is being run by the Prudhoe Community Partnership.
 
 
Art lovers need to follow the boot logo to find the Trail and the artworks - the shopkeepers will display posters of the boot and there's the map.
 
 
I look forward to seeing you there!

Monday 08th July 2019Sky Blue Summers in Northumberland

Thank you Tyne Valley Express magazine for this interview about my painting 'The Blue Porch,' the Gallery Bed and Breakfast above the gallery - and summers in Northumberland.
 

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 from vegetarian, 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.
