I am most pleased that a number of my paintings from my recent ‘2012 ~ Signs, Secrets & Symbols’  project will be going on exhibition in London next week.

Four works, ‘An Almighty Shift In Consciousness’ , ‘And Accordingly Proceed The Knowledgeable’, ‘Paradoxica Emblematica’ and ‘Singing To A Star King’ are to be shown alongside work from seven other artists in the September Fest exhibition at London’s Vibe Gallery, which is located in the heart of Bermondsey, and in association with Art Caffe London.

Marie Curie : Diamonds Are Forever : Charity Ball 2012

I am delighted that once again I have been asked to participate in the Marie Curie Cancer Care Cornwall’s biennial major fundraising event, the ‘Diamonds Are Forever’ Charity Ball.

This afternoon Marianne Wright and Angela Coote, from the Marie Curie Cancer Care Cornwall Fundraising Group, visited my studio to select a painting to be auctioned on the night of the 2012 Charity Ball, which is to be held at the Atlantic Hotel on October 20th.

‘Longview On Longships (ii)’, one of my paintings of Longships Lighthouse which was completed in 2009 was unanimously decided upon by the ladies and is pictured below.

At the 2010 Charity Ball Grand Auction my ‘Wonderland’ raised a considerable amount of money for Marie Curie and I am hoping that this years selection will do well for them. They need the money to help fund those wonderful Marie Curie nurses who help to care for cancer patients and the terminally ill.

Amsterdam : Berlin : London : France

Apologies for the delay but here is the latest news from my studio, which currently has even more of an international flavour than usual.

This morning the original works of ‘Magentic Sun’, ‘The 29th Day’ and ‘BIG BANG’, which were completed for Sequoia Tees, have been shipped to Amsterdam ready for exhibition.

‘Brandenburg Concerto No. 1’ and ‘Die Rote Kapelle’ painted for EAGL Gallery in Berlin and featuring in their latest catalogue, which coincidentally arrived this morning by post, are ready for exhibition.

The first works for France are now finished and are at my framers, a triptych of small works which are collectively titled ‘An Homage To Neil Armstrong, Earth ~ Sun ~ Moon’.

Four paintings from my recent ‘2012 ~ Signs, Secrets & Symbols’ project will be on show at London’s Vibe Gallery later this month.

Work is well under way on my Christmas Exhibition paintings for my show at The Blake Gallery in Gravesham.

The Hall For Cornwall Carousel Horse project which features my ‘Sterren ~ A Star For Cornwall’ is well under way.

In addition there are several other projects under way and of course my paintings are available from The ARThouse Gallery in Bournemouth.
