I have been busy making work for a number of things over the last couple of months - I have a couple of drawings in the Scottish Drawing Competition at Paisley Museum until Saturday 26th November. They are both charcoal and chalk drawings - one of an amazing moorhen I spotted earlier in the year along the Water of Leith which had made its nest from old bits of Christmas tree, In the Bridge's Shadow. The other is a drawing of seagulls at night - despite being so common and often regarded as a pest seagulls are the most beautiful birds - Night Gulls.
Above is another response to the same subject matter of the moorhen, this time in screen print form. You can see this at the Edinburgh Printmakers Workshop Hidden City exhibition which opens on Saturday 12th November 2011.
I have a couple of pieces in the Christmas Show at Gallery Heinzel in Aberdeen, one of which is my Blackbird in a Sunset Bush painting inspired by the poetry of Norman MacCaig.
And finally, I'll have plenty of new card designs and a couple of new prints at my Open Studios this December - click here for more details.
