Word is that the PayPal button I posted for these badges wasn’t working on the previous post. I’ve fixed that post now, but here’s that tempting offer again…

My painting The Devil + Idle Hands 1 (above) was selected for the ESO 2016, and I was really chuffed that they are also using it as the publicity image for the exhibition, which means it has already graced the pages of the Towner exhibition programme, as well as featuring in adverts across local media.

I Think Of You And I Smile (crop)An image of my painting I Think Of You And I Smile has been included in a community project on Worthing’s 1930s Streamline Moderne pier.

Art On The Pier‘ was unveiled a week ago, and will be in situ until May 2017.

My piece is one of 50 selected by Creative Waves, and on display – alongside 2 other projects ‘Appear On The Pier’ (featuring ‘selfies’ created by local school pupils) and ‘Post To The Coast’ (a postcard response project) – in the open-air galleries along the centre of the pier.

Signed and numbered print editions of I Think Of You And I Smile are available from Subversion Gallery, Glasgow and Art Republic, Brighton, as well as Sticks Gallery, Portsmouth (for a limited time).
