My current obsession with fishing boats seems to be paying off. The picture above has had a lot of admiration but it was a pleasure to paint! Anyway, I have now got a couple of interesting small exhibitions lined up: one at Rozelle House - the space outside the cafe there - from mid September to mid October - and then next year, a whole month's exhibition in the lovely cafe/gallery at the cross in Mauchline, part of a wonderful gallery called Many Thanks. That is scheduled for next June which seems a long way off, but will no doubt come around quickly! I'll keep you posted. And over the winter, I'll be working on some more 'rural' pictures particularly for Mauchline: working horses and perhaps more traditional agricultural themes. In between times, there will be next year's springtime Open Studios event - although at the moment, I'm not sure whether I'll be exhibiting here in the village, or decamping to Maybole's Carrick Centre or even the Burns Museum. Depends very much on health, mobility, and availability of wife to do the carrying!
