‘St Piran In The Full Blaze Of Day’

The Hotel Victoria, which is prominently situated in the heart of Newquay, will be hosting a retrospective exhibition of my work in their magnificent Regency Room from 25 October to 6 November this autumn.   None of the paintings will be for sale but it will be the first time that many will be seen in Cornwall, including my 2013 work ‘St Piran In The Full Blaze Of Day’ which will make it’s debut at the show, along with others such as  ‘Rocket Man’,  a painting  which was previously exhibited twice in Bristol.

I shall be at the launch of the show to talk about some of the paintings and the ideas behind them.

The exhibition is being organised in support of Marie Curie and for the show I am in the process of painting my first work of the area since I moved to The Lizard from Falmouth three years ago.  It is a painting of Gweek Bridge and it is to be offered as a raffle prize, with 100% of the proceeds going to the charity.

This will be quite a special prize for Marie Curie as it will be the first of an occasional but ongoing series of paintings of this beautiful and most southern part of Cornwall.  Once the painting is finished and framed it will be available for raffle and full details will be released as soon as it is ready, along with further information on the exhibition.

Along with the painting of Gweek Bridge, ‘St Piran In The Full Blaze Of Day’ will be the centrepiece of the exhibition which opens on Friday October 25 and will run for 13 days.
