Jaq's Framing Shop
A project for a business in Mexborough, South Yorkshire.
Doncaster Arts Festival 2017
I painted on shop windows during the three days of the festival, chatting to people about what, how, & why! Getting lots of positive reactions.
For more images see the 'Public Art' in section Galleries.
Painting on shop windows again! This time in Mexborough, on a very busy corner, with images of local interest, - Billy Casper with kestral from the film 'Kes', and Ted Hughes poet laureate, who spent his school years in the town.
Christmas Fayre at Wentworth Woodhouse
I was happy to be part of a large Christmas Fayre at one of the largest stately homes in the country, Wentworth Woodhouse near Rotherham.
I had on show around fifty miniature paintings, some watercolour, some acrylic. Some of these appear in the gallery "Winter Scenes"
I helped to curate this exhibition, the first to be held in Wath-on-Dearne Hall, (an 18th century building until recently used as the town hall).
There were over a hundred works on show from local art groups, & local individual artists.
Waterdale Shop Window
An oversized version of Van Goghs "Self Portrait with a Straw Hat".
Painted to enhance an empty shop window in Doncaster's, Waterdale shopping centre.
The Doncaster arts festival "DNweekend" staged different events all around the town over a weekend early in September.
I spent a day painting & meeting people in Doncaster market place. The subject was a setting of some impressive buildings
in the town into which I placed visual "quotes" from well known paintings.
See the Townscape gallery to view the finished work, "Doncaster, City of Art" ...more
Painter in the Street
In March 2016 I was pleased to be asked by the Doncaster arts organisation Right Up Our Street (ROUS) to spend a Saturday on the High Street in Mexborough, South Yorkshire, painting & talking to people about my work.
The painting which started life here on the High Street was completed several weeks later, called 'The Cafe Terrace at night, Bank Street' can be seen in the "Landscapes & Townscapes" gallery on this website
