Back when I was working as a woodcarver, I did quite a bit of work for the Hansel Village here in Ayrshire, including designing and making carvings like this one for a miniature golf course for the residents. This was a pleasure from start to finish, although it was very demanding!
Now that I'm painting, and no longer able to carve because of health problems, I was very happy to be invited to contribute a little picture to Hansel's fundraiser which will be launched at the beautiful Lochgreen Hotel in Troon on Monday 9th March. All the paintings will be on sale for charity and will go to help sustain this very worthwhile foundation. The exhibition is on for three days and my contribution has a nautical theme - this is Ardminish Bay, on Gigha - a detailed little image as you can see below!
We'll be blogging from time to time about Alan's work, what he's working on and what's for sale. Watch this space for news of forthcoming exhibitions too!
