Hi there. Three very different pictures here that sum up my month of May so far, and there is still quite a bit left to go! The first picture, the silhouette double profile cut, is of my good friend Cameron Reid and his girlfriend, Annette. Cameron has just opened a new art store at the Buchanan Galleries in Glasgow. It is aptly named, 'ART'. I went along to the opening party to help welcoming the guests by offering to cut their silhouettes. It was a very busy and enjoyable evening. Good luck to Cameron and Annette. I am sure the store will grow from strength to strength.
The second picture is a watercolour portrait that I did of my granddaughter, Niamh. She celebrated her 1st Holy Communion this month. A fantastic landmark. Painting this watercolour of Niamh rolled back the years to when I did an oil painting of her mother for her special day.
The last painting is a watercolour that I have completed this very day. Just keeping my hand in and producing as many portrait and figure work watercolours as possible right now.
I don't allow myself to get 'rusty'.
