‘Painted in Ireland’ – my solo art show – set up and now open to public in Straffan Design & Antiques Art Gallery! A ‘split personality’ collection of classic cars, seascapes, etchings, Irish Seaside Ladies drawings and a few portraits. All done while my residing in Ireland, guess that counts as a common denominator. Up until 12 November 2017.
There’s no official opening as I’m a busy bee on a new film with days off few and far between, but there is a fab ‘Victorian Tea Rooms’ on the premises, so you won’t go hungry if you venture a visit.

The horse & hound mural went up despite the rain, the bitter cold and its less-than-easy-to-reach location. Check out work-in-progress and the massive Height for Hire cherry picker I learned to operate for this job:
In addition to the mural, the pub now sports a new hand-painted double-sided sign:
To sum up, three new horses and three new hounds were added by yours truly to the centuries’ worth of art collected by this most charming pub.

Hello, strangers. The last 6 months have been all ‘no-disclosure’ film artwork – portraits, calligraphy, scenic art and art direction, so – an overwhelming zero personal art was made!
Here is the one beaut I can disclose for now – a lovely classic car Christmas commission that came from London. It was a pleasure to paint and a pleasure to deliver, which I did in person. David Bowie’s musical ‘Lazarus’ and a handful of top-notch exhibitions to visit in the National Gallery and the Royal Academy were a cherry on top!
