New paintings at The Ship

Tuesday, March 20th, 2012

[SinglePic not found]

I have 9 paintings on show and for sale at the Ship. For an opulent day out why not try the Fruits de Mer ‘Royale’ (with Dom Perignon) and invest in some original art direct from the artist.

Check the paintings out on the Exhibitions page:

Herring Lassie Paintings – SOLD OUT

Friday, March 16th, 2012

What a fantastic week at the Dundas Street Gallery. My new series of Herring Lassie Paintings has SOLD OUT. The feedback from people visiting the gallery has been absolutely amazing. Many thanks to everyone who has visited. In addition I have sold many other paintings, lots of Limited Edition Herring Lassie prints and have gained some new commissions. The exhibition runs for 2 more days and finishes on Saturday evening (17th March) at 6pm.

This will be the last opportunity to see all the Herring Lassie paintings together before they go to their new homes. Please pop in and say hello. There are a few paintings left, including a 7 foot by 5 foot painting of Mermaids with a background of Iona and Limited Edition prints of the Herring Lassie series.
