This is the first edition of my newsletter. Last year’s exhibition, ‘SEASONS’ was my fourth solo show, but it was the first one that I fully organised myself.
‘Seasons’ was a look back through the art I have created over the past ten years. Running the show was a way to connect with the people interested in my art and find out what exactly what they like about it.
The exhibition was a showcase of my capabilities as an artist and my expectation was to arrange some commissions with people.
I am glad to say that the show was a great success. Over thirty people requested commissions to be painted and I have been working on them since then.
My next show will comprise of these paintings. The owners have agreed to loan their paintings to me. I hope to show and discuss these paintings with people who come along to the exhibition and discuss other ideas for further paintings with them.
The two paintings above are examples of paintings that I have recently completed and they will be on display in this exhibition.
To give an example of how a commission works; the painting on the top was done for a couple who have admired my work for a number of years. We met and agreed that their children would be incorporated into their painting. The location of the painting was chosen because the couple have a deep affinity with that area.
The painting just above came about by an interested client making a visit to my studio and selecting an image from the large collection I have on display there.
In all cases the clients either tell me what size of painting they would like or how much they are prepared to spend.
So all that remains is for me to invite you to my exhibition, opening in Malahide library on Saturday 19th May from 2pm to 5pm. The library closes on Sundays and the show runs until Friday 1st June. I will be present for most of the time and will be painting while there.
