No Kissing! (In Your Paintings, Anyway)

Too-neatly aligned. Just touching. Tentatively overlapped. Kissing. It’s a venial sin of artistic composition. Elements should either be definitely apart or definitely overlapping.

Photos: On the Ferry on a Sunny Hebridean Spring Day

Yesterday I caught the ferry from Uig to Tarbert to deliver a painting, being met at the terminal because the ferry turns around rapidly, 20 minutes between scheduled arrival and departure.

Commission a Painting

I enjoy the challenge of commissions and am happy to discuss possibilities, whether you’ve seen a painting you like but it’s no longer available, you’re after a particular size or dominant colour, want an amalgamation of favourite elements from different paintings of mine, wish for a painting featuring your house/location, etc. Another alternative is to have first option on my next painting in a particular series (seascape, landscape, winding road, forest, sheep). I also do commissions for wirework and my wearable art.

Prices of commissioned paintings are the same as my other paintings, a 20% deposit may be required. How long it takes depends on what else I’m doing and the size of the painting, but usually between a fortnight and eight weeks.

Email me, or pop into Skyeworks Gallery in Portree (I’m there most Saturdays) for a discussion.
