In these difficult times a lot of us are suffering in one form or another. In the grand scheme of things art doesn’t seem that important but there are an awful lot of artists who rely on teaching, art fairs and other events to sell there art and generate income.
Matthew Burrows has created #artistsupportpledge to help artists struggling at this time. For every £1000 of work sold through #artistsupportpledge the artist commits to purchasing a work from another artist for £200. I have made that pledge and posted work for sale on my Instagram account. I have also identified those works in my sales page.
You can also check out the blog of my discussion with my friend and artist, Lisa Takahashi about the art equipment I like to use on the excellent Jackson’s Art web site:
I won’t be tutoring artists in France in 2020. However, we are hoping you will be able to join us in 2021 for inspiring and unforgettable Painting Holidays in the heart of the Loire Valley, France. Based on a comfortable private estate and led by experienced tutors. Our painting holidays have a fun and easy-going atmosphere and are accompanied by great French food & wine!
Please check out the Painting Holidays page for further details.
I featured on Sky Arts landscape Artist of the Year in 2018. I was fortunate to win my heat and made it to the semi-final. I have posted a couple of blogs on my experience.
I have Giclee prints available of the Vital Spark on Loch Fyne, two alternatives of boats at Staithes and the Duomo in Florence. I have also started producing small batches of reduction lino cut prints. I have also started making Art Cards with a set I have called ‘Tyneside Joiner’. If you are interested in affordable limited edition prints and lino cut prints take a look at my ‘Prints’ page.
I have work for sale at prices to suit all pockets. I have been working on a lot of smaller postcard sized pieces for the past twelve months. I really like the intimacy of such small pieces. They also have the advantage of being an easily affordable way of owning original art.
