Commissions, galleries and exhibitions - an exciting year ahead!

Commissions, galleries and exhibitions - an exciting year ahead!

As Christmas approaches I am spending time promoting my commission work as well as building up my portfolio of artworks - I am still working on the badger and feel happier about it now.

I have been asked by the Sable and Hogg Gallery in Brecon to bring some of my artworks across with the view of displaying them in their lovely little gallery - I have sold artworks there in previous years.

I have also been approached to do a solo exhibition at the new Makers Gallery in Crickhowell, which is also exciting and flattering. The owner Emma Bevan curated my involvement in the H-art exhibition in September so she knows the quality of my artwork.

And of course I have two commissions, so far, to complete for Christmas with another possibility ( a vintage car and Spitfire ) in the pipeline. I will post the pet portrait commission ( collected during the week ) after Christmas....

So a lot of plans for 2020 and I will keep you in the loop as things progress - commissions, galleries and exhibitions are things to look forward to. And I will know more about the Brecon gallery after we visit there on Tuesday morning....

Have a great day and catch up with you very soon.....
