Well the big old fella has touched down in Vienna and is now safely hanging on his new wall. Lovely to receive feedback and a photo. Happy New Home Magnus 🐮
That’s ‘Magnus’ sold and heading off to his new home – delighted to have a sale, but I’ll sort of miss him!
I’m hoping to start a new avenue of marketing soon, just getting things in place, dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s, and then I can launch it.
Lovely hunk ‘Magnus’ is now up for sale on my storefront on Saatch Art Online and Artfinder.com – I’m only half hoping he’ll find a new home, as I’ve become quite fond of the big fella! Oil on canvas 61 x 61cm
Just completed this commission of a Highland Cow and having used a mix of reds and blacks she resulted in a chocolatey look to her hair so I’ve temporarily christened her Coco. Bit of varnish, attach the loops and cord and off she goes to her new home 🐮🎨
One of the tricky parts to creating and selling paintings is probably the simplest….choosing a title on completing the work. This latest one, an oil painting on canvas of a Highland Bull, caused a bit of a brain freeze so I asked for help via social media. This resulted in clever and well thought out suggestions.
The winning title I chose is ‘Magnus’ – a Scottish name meaning ‘Greatness’ – well suited for this big beefcake I think!
This painting, one of my favourites, has just sold at the Garrion Bridges Art & Antique centre. I hope she’s settling into her new home 🐮
This is similar to a previous painting of mine, but I love the composition (and the model!) so decided to paint her again from a slightly different angle and a reverse/mirror image. I haven’t come up with a title yet…suggestions would be very welcome.
Following the sale of my big canvas (well, big for me anyway) ‘Stag In Water’, I thought I’d see if another biggie would be of interest to someone. This ‘heilan coo’ is acrylic on a 60x60cm canvas and was great fun to paint in all her shagginess!
“Isla” will be ‘hoofing it’ down to my display wall at the Garrion Bridges in the next day or two.
Just about to pop this mini version of a black Highland Cow painting I did last year, into the post to New York, to take part in the Twitter Art Exhibition. All entries have to be a postcard size and it was good fun to scale this one down…mini-moo!
Well here we are, launching into 2016 when I’ve only just got used to writing ‘2015’. Where do the months go!
I wonder how many people have made resolutions and have given up on them already? I hope to stick to at least a couple of mine, which are to try and get my artwork “out there” this year – meaning a more concerted effort to publicise myself (not an easy task if I’m completely honest) and also to paint more often than I have been doing.
The start of the year has been encouraging though, as I recently sold a large canvas of a highland cow (‘Hamish, Standing” – see below) – so with resolutions in place, let’s crack on!!
