I’m exhibiting work at the Clifton Suspension Bridge Visitor Centre with Clifton Arts Club, it’s a great space and it runs until Sunday the 1st of April. I’ll be there Sunday afternoon if you want to say hi, it’s open from 10 to 5pm and is free.
Winter Mizzle, Suspension Bridge

It’s been a while since I’ve posted but I have been out painting over the Winter and to prove it I’ve just updated my Landscape gallery, take a look here. I’ve also broken it down by area, Wales, West etc. Any comments welcome, I’ll be updating the lifeless and portrait galleries in the next few days too.
I’ve got lots of new work to show at the North Somerset Arts week which is coming up in the next month. The paper brochure is already out and it should be downloadable from the NSA site shortly. I am exhibiting from my home “studio” in Portishead again on the Sat 29th, 30th April, 1st May (Bank how Monday) and the following weekend 6th, 7th May. I’m easy to find as I’m last in the brochure! I’ll be exhibiting with painter Lois Pryce and Brian Fowler who creates beautiful raku and pit fired pottery, More news on this shortly.
Dusk, Battery Point – a selector’s choice at Clifton
I’ve got four paintings on show at the Clevedon Art Club Open exhibition. Their sixtieth anniversary exhibition will be held in the Science Atrium ofClevedon School from Saturday August 20 to Monday August 29 2016. Daily from 10.30am – 6.00pm. Sundays 2.00pm – 6.00pm.
Red Barn, at Clevedon Open
My painting Red Barn (above) was selected for the A2 open but not hung, so I’m glad to say it’s been selected for the Clevedon Open.
I’m still exhibiting in the A2 gallery in Wells for the rest of August, there’s more info in my last post. Here’s one of my paintings on show which was based another smaller painting I made following a long walk up there.
I had a great sneak preview of the Clifton Arts Club exhibition while helping hang it yesterday. You get a really close look while your attaching them to the wall!
There’s some great work on show and a real variety too. Less variety from me this time, I’ve got lots of seascapes in of all shapes and sizes including these. Thank you selectors! I needn’t have been worried about having only entered seascapes after all.
I’ve got to mention that there are some lovely little paintings in the reject room too. I know the frustration!
Private view Friday and opens Saturday for two weeks. It’s at Bristol School of Art right next door to the RWA in Bristol (same building).
Last Friday I went to the Clifton Arts Club exhibition where I got a range of little pictures in, my first full house, taking no chances I cycled! It’s next door to the RWA at Bristol Drawing School so why not combine it with a trip to the Harbour Festival this weekend? It’s on until the 20th and you’ll also see a painting by Laura Robertson who has a self-portrait hanging in the National Portrait Gallery in the BP portrait prize. It was great to bump into her, recognise her face from the BP and have a chance to congratulate her. Well done again.
If you have been put off the BP by it being focused on photo-realistic portraits recently then give it another visit this year as there’s a much wider range of styles this time around.
I particularly liked this one too by Stanislav Buban.
