New Year - Resolutions?

Try to paint more than last year - not much to beat - since I spent  more time painting the frames for completed 2015 work,  than on new 2016 work!   This year both my paintings are featured on the invitation to The Opening at Royal Cambrian Academy, Conwy (Top Row Left - The Wave  and Bottom right - Myself, The Indoor Gardener)


2017 RCA Open Exhibition

Just heard both paintings have been accepted into the Open Exhibition at Royal Cambrian Academy, Conwy, opens January 7th, 2017.  Doesn't seem a year since I wrote last time.  2016 has gone so quickly in some ways - although I've had some health problems & not painted as much as I would have liked.

Royal Cambrian Academy, Conwy - Open Art Exhibition

I've just heard that my 2 landscapes have been selected for  the forthcoming Exhibition - opening Jan 9th until Feb 20th.   I hope to get to the opening this time - if the weather is ok. 

Successful entry

My drawing SEA SKETCHES has been accepted in Kyffin Williams Drawing Prize 2015 exhibition, in Oriel Ynys Mon, Llangefni, Anglesey, 12th Sept 2015 - 31st Jan 2016! I couldn't get to the opening of the exhibition but hoping to get up there soon -  transport & carers to arrange etc.   


Have had 1 drawing short-listed at Oriel Ynys Mon's Kyffin Williams' Drawing Competition.  Don't know whether it will be hung, but at least got over the 1st hurdle.  Have got to take it to National Library of Wales in July, for transport to Anglesey for final judging, so keep your fingers crossed for me & the drawing!


Exhibition time again

Exhibiting with Ceredigion Art Society's Spring show in Morlan Centre, Queen's Road, Aberystwyth - just down the road, so for once it isn't hard to get my pictures to the venue. (05/05/2015 - 31/07/2015) .  Also in Gas Gallery's Open Exhibition from  09/05/2015 - 20/06/2015.   

I'm on the Directory of Ceredigion Artists this year with Ceredigion  Art Trail




After a heavy fall, & hairline fractured hip I've been 'a bit under the weather', but am beginning to feel like drawing again. I've not been able to see my paintings in Royal Cambrian Academy's Open Exhibition this time, but hope they were well received. 

I've got 5 paintings on long-term exhibition in a local hotel - Brynarth Country Guest House, Lledrod Llanon, Aberystwyth SY23 4HX · 01974 261367 .  As the weather improves, & I get more mobile I hope to do some sketching  etc. on site on their grounds.


Success at Royal Cambrian Academy's Open Exhibition

I submitted 2 oil paintings to the Open Art Exhibition in Royal Cambrian Academy this month, & have received notification that both have been accepted!  Exhibition is in Royal Cambrian Academy, Crown Lane, Conwy, LL32 8AN from January 10th - February 14th.  This year marks 50 years of exhibiting in selected exhibitions - makes me feel old! 


A Good Year?

Things have been happening this year. Having applied for membership of Royal Cambrian Academy, Conwy late in 2013,  my work was 'short-listed' for further consideration in their A.G.M, along with a few more artists, out of the 30+ that had originally applied.  Unfortunately I wasn't elected, but hadn't been rejected straightaway either - a little bit of hope for another time, maybe.

 I had been planning   to submit  discs of recent work to  various Art Galleries in Wales in Spring, but had 2 galleries contacting me! & exhibited in Carmarthen, in June.

Have 2 drawings accepted in Gas Gallery, Park Avenue, Aberystwyth, SY23 1PB, from 9th October - 4th November.  Off on holiday now, before settling back to get on with joint exhibition of Affordable Art Fair that starts 6th December - 7th January in the Upstairs gallery of Gas Gallery, Park Avenue, Aberystwyth.
