    Brilliant news Gary.

    Just wish I lived a lot closer; it would be great to come and view your excellent work.

    All the best for the grand occasion,

    excellent news Gary, I'm genuinely pleased for you, you deserve a break, your artwork shown on here has always been epic, I still remember the scene with the boats in the harbour, the tree bark, and the bubbles, there are others too, but they stick in my mind.

    I'd had my life drawing titled 'Pentimento' accepted for the Coventry Uni Drawing Prize 2016. The title was inspired by:

    A pentimento (plural pentimenti) is an alteration in a painting, evidenced by traces of previous work, showing that the artist has changed his or her mind as to the composition during the process of painting. The word is Italian for repentance, from the verb pentirsi, meaning to repent.

    Because a model will always move during a sitting and never go back into exactly the same position after a break, I deliberately left all my initial drafting marks in.

    My solo exhibition was put up this evening and will be on show from tomorrow until May 21st. Anyone local is welcome to go along for a look at the All Saints Centre in Kings Heath, Birmingham. I'll take my camera tomorrow and take a few pics.

    Seems kinda weird right now - having 12 artworks on walls at another location. It's usually on the floor and leaning against a wall in the spare room.

    Aye, best wishes and good luck with the exhibition Gary. I hope it goes really well for you (and you've got some big pound price tags on the back of every one. ).

    Some pics of the show. Very tricky to photograph due to the opposite wall being all windows with coloured designs running along the bottom.

    Excellent news, even a photograph of your stuff like you posted on here is stunning, I can only imagine how much better they look in the flesh, I loved your pic of the boats, and the bubbles one was amazing, especially your technique of doing it in 1" squares, dunno how you have the patience.

    Thanks Paul. I'm not sure that is the correct mag. There might be one local to Coventry as the mag will feature the cov uni drawing prize I was part of and my drawing had been selected to feature.

    Congratulations Gary. Well done on getting your drawing in the mag.

    Congratulations .

    As a spotty child I wanted to an artist and was in the same art class as Mark Hampson in Oldham . Alas I quit my art foundation course upon discovering Marxist economics . Given that I did not become the new Antonio Gramsci and my left wing radicalisation coincided with Thatcher and Englands lurch to the right , I very much regret not becoming an artist . So well done .

    It must be this artspace mag. I'd be very surprised if it's the other one I posted up.
