'Pen-y-ghent above Horton-in-Ribblesdale'  Oil on canvas  30 x 25 cms

A big thank you to those many visitors who made the trek here to Giggleswick and made this year's North Yorkshire Open Studios so successful once again.

It's always great to see people wandering round the house and taking their time to look carefully at the paintings - and of course at my sketchbooks which I know are frequently a really special part of the visit. They offer a unique window into the often lengthy process by which the finished work comes into being and which is normally hidden. 


 There were many positive comments and words of appreciation which are always welcome and stimulating; it's always rewarding to feel that the work strikes a chord amongst so many.  The making of art is really a two-way process and this is why the open studio experience is of such value to artist and visitor alike - the typical gallery visit is necessarily very limited in comparison. 

Speaking of which, my Annual Open Studio weekend will this year be

November 16th and 17th. (More details nearer the time.)

In the meantime I am continuing to show at the Old Courthouse Gallery in Ambleside.

And I have one or two other ideas for galleries in the near future -

  so watch this space!
