This Easter Sunday there’s going to be a free exhibition in Portsmouth not only is the exhibition free but everything.. ..  Everything on display will be free to take away with you. I am really pleased to be a part of this, So many people want original artwork on their walls but most feel it is too expensive to buy or like so many pieces it is just viciously overpriced. There will be 100s of pieces on display from 100s of fantastic artists. So if you’ve always wanted to collect some original art this is the time and place to do it, you may just find your favourite artist of all time. .. …. / . /.

Pigeon Lust. . … . … / . / .

Last week was the opening night of my new solo exhibition ‘Broken People Together’ at Jewry Street Gallery, Winchester. It continues until the 16th of April, so do go and see it.. . .. . On opening night there was a painting that if i had of had 6 of they would have all sold, funnily enough it was the one i was least concerned about showing, it was ‘Trembling On High Wires’.

Such was peoples pigeon lust that the past couple of days i have been spurred to paint more and more pigeons.. .. . Supply and demand, selling out or just giving people what they want. .. . call it what you will as long as i’m still painting everything else seems trivial .. … .. …. . . /. / .
