CALLING and CALL ME were purchased yesterday by a very nice gentleman at our Private View, I am very pleased they weren't separated and will be going together to a lovely new home. Thank you J!
I first painted CALL ME last year, my grandmother left me these beautiful oval frames and after restoring them I decided the best I could do was a diptych of a couple with a 1940's look and feel to them.
The frames reminded me of those old small oval necklaces you get where you keep a photograph of your loved one.
After I did CALL ME I had to have a male version where he is CALLING her, he is a missed aviator sent far away.
Now they will not remain apart.
Both paintings are Gouache on fabriano hot press 640 gsm paper. Size is 40 x 30 cm aproximately as they are oval.
Yesterday Tuesday 8th of November was our private view at THE FRAMERS GALLERY, if you didn't get a chance to see it, the show goes on till the end of the week. Gallery opening hours are 10 to 6 p.m everyday. Show ends on Saturday the 12th November.
Rebecca Merry, Chris Salmon, Mick Davies and I are very grateful for all the lovely people that managed to join us on the night and for those that couldn't make it but where there in spirit!
It was a great Private View and so busy I did not have a chance to take any photos of everyone, in previous shows I have had a friend to take some pictures of the event but sadly this time I wasn't that organized and once people started coming through the door and my glass of wine kept filling up I completely forgot to ask someone or to take a few myself.
But I do have these photos of my side of the show before it all started at 6 and just one of me with friend Kay when everyone had left by 9.30 p.m.
Thank you ALL for all the support!!
