Express yourself…

I’m settling in nicely to my new gallery space and have already sploshed paint ‘up and over’… so it is truly mine now! On the boards at the moment are a commission (a companion piece to a previously sold painting) and an expressive landscape in similar colours.

Anyone would think I like pink… 🙂

The prodigal poster is back!

I hope everyone had a fun and peaceful festive season and a great start to 2020.

We have had a radical transformation of the gallery for the new year and boy! Are we smug-faces at the moment. It’s nothing but a pleasure stepping through the door to earn a daily crust. It is much more spacious and professional, and Mike and I now have seperate areas to make a mess in.

Our friendly neighborhood chippie put in walls, worktops and the piece de resistance – my own desk. Did I say my OWN DESK? I have my own desk. Desk. DESSKKKK! I’m just a little upcited by this. Can you tell? Look at it! It’s so beautiful. Good riddance to the gnarly, uncomfortable, old shop counter top I have been perched precariously at for the last few years, lobbing globules of paint at my poor husband. I now have a people-proof snug to create art in. How lucky am I? Or is it Mr P that’s the lucky one? I’m not sure. Every time I look at my desk I forget how exhausting the last fortnight has been, cleaning out and making anew. The taking things back to a shell and then rebuilding afresh – even the wallpapering is a distant memory thankfully. ( The broken tap squirting water everywhere on the reopening day is still a bit raw though!)

Now if the river could hold off from flooding us out, that would be just dandy….

Thank you to everyone who helped us achieve our long- awaited dream of a beautiful and creative space to work and shine in… we couldn’t have done it without you.

Enjoy the before and afters x
