It's been a very busy year for me, but mostly because I've had the first of two hip replacement operations, and have had to fit my work around numerous hospital appointments.
Nevertheless, I have managed to achieve quite a lot. I've completed many painted paperweights, as well as a few upcycled pieces, and managed (with the help of my wife and various friends) to display my work at the Burns Museum in Alloway and Many Thanks in Mauchline. I've renovated a few nice old pieces of woodcarving, and I've finished restoring a rocking horse, which I'll be posting pictures of on here in time for Christmas.
All of these things will be on sale and displayed in my Etsy store over the autumn and winter months. Watch this blog for more news.
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!
