The opening takes place tonight (December 5th) for a group exhibition I am taking part in. Three boat paintings will make their debut at the gallery and I'll be in the company of seven other artists showing a wide range of subjects and styles. The opening reception is at Peter Lewis Gallery from 7 - 9 pm Saturday December 5th and I'd love to see you there.

The exhibition runs until December 19th and is a perfect lead up to the Christmas season. What better way to spend a winter's evening but with a glass of wine, art conversation and beautiful paintings? While many of my paintings can be seen online, there really is no comparison to seeing a piece in person under the wonderful gallery lighting. The colours are more intense and the subtle value changes can be seen more clearly.
Meanwhile I'm just about ready for the what is becoming "annual" Painting Christmas workshop which will take place tomorrow. I've put up a tree (the earliest time ever in my life!) and its looking festive. Even the weather added some snow yesterday to add to the seasonal feel. Lots of learning and painting will take place in addition to a delicious three course home cooked lunch with wine. It may be difficult to get that afternoon painting in after that!
