I meant to take photographs of all the lovely people in the gallery at tonight's opening, but I was too busy talking to them all (and putting up red dots!)
Just for a change from flowers I put a row of lemons on the table, and jokingly, I asked a friend 'Is it lemons or is it Art?' Quick as a flash Marij said 'It's Tart Art!'
Very tart art.
Thank you so much for all your good wishes.
The exhibition that is!
Since I first saw this lovely space I have wanted to show some of my work here.
I love its simplicity and although it may look a bit stark - imagine some people in there.
Hopefully there will be lots tomorrow night at the opening.
If you live near enough do come!
I will tell you more about the Burgh Hall and
its gallery tomorrow....
Regular visitors to the blog will know that I am making paper collages of the Isle of Harris and can't stop! Even while mounting and framing and doing the hundred other things required for an exhibition, I am still making more....(it's wonderful! I'm possessed!) I know, I'm sounding like the mad artist....
They are for sale, of course. Details here.
And more photographs here.
On The Edge, Harris
Shipping Lane, Harris
More from the mad artist tomorrow. I'm just a little bit - exhausted, actually.
PS I have oil paintings at the Edinburgh Art Fair this weekend, with Tighnabruaich Gallery.
Sales are brisk and there's a good atmosphere, and lots to see and enjoy....
Andrew (in blue shirt) and Penny (facing the camera) from Tighnabruaich Gallery
will make you welcome - do mention my name!
My paintings are the deep blue one behind Andrew and the pale blue one and the two red ones in the first photo - though there may be different ones tomorrow..
I've been enjoying experimenting with painting frames with the marvellous Annie Sloan paints which come in wonderful colours.
I know I have said in the past that there is enough distress in the world without deliberately distressing furniture and paint frames, but I'm liking this effect! (I should have lit the candle to enhance it).
Letting some of the gold shine through....
The oil painting is titled The Pink Calls to The Yellow
