Exhibition Submissions

The Great Yarmouth Society of Artists hold their annual exhibition every September. I usually submit 2 or 3 paintings that i’ve done throughout the year. 
This year however, i’m a bit short on work, but i’ve managed to dredge up some old work that I really rather like. 
Here’s a sneak preview before I get it framed

To see the rest of my work, and the work of the other artists (they really do put me to shame, they produce some awesome artwork) come along to the annual exhibition at Great Yarmouth Library – 10-17 September 2011.

Great Yarmouth town centre mural – 2003

Recently, due to a bit of a time shortage, I’ve been a little short of any recent personal work to post up here. (Or make it look pretty…)

However, I was fishing through my old photos and found some photos of a mural that I designed and painted with the help of a couple of friends in 2003, just before my art foundation course.

Tesco had recently shut down in the town centre, leaving their premises boarded up and unsightly.

I worked in the pub opposite at the time, and the landlord had gained permission to paint the boards that covered the store windows. We felt that in such a prime location, (open to the market place, next to a car park, and viewable from most of the major bus routes) having such a large area boarded up, especially at the height of summer, with many tourists about, gave a very depressing view of the town.
 


We were given free reign to do what we wanted with the four boards. So I chose to do a brightly coloured abstract pattern. I didn’t want to do anything too complicated, due to time constraints, (and the cost of paint) and swirls are fairly inoffensive. 
To our amazement, throughout the time they were up, there was only one, very tiny piece of graffiti!

So… this is it…

I have finally entered the world of blogging, inspired by so many interesting blogs. I thought it would be a great idea to make my own, share with people my inspiration, illustrations and showcase my work.
I’ll share links about art, design, craft, and growing my own… amongst sneak previews into what i’ve been up to, and the work i’ve been producing.
