Gallery 2017

From the end of November 2016 till the 15th January 2017, some of my work was on exhibition at The Yellow Door gallery in Dumfries, where I sold Golden Moon on the Valley, Golden Moon Over the Valley, Night Woodland and Woodland Glow, which can be seen here. The next exhibition opened on the 16th January at The Workshop Gallery in Castle Douglas, so it was a busy start to the year choosing and hanging pictures! I have sourced a new style and size of box frames which I'll be using for pictures in February onwards, fresh for the next exhibition at The Gallery at Laurieston which opened at the beginning of March. I have been experimenting with my new Babylock Embellisher, a needle-felting machine which gives a very different finish to the working piece than simply needle-felting by hand. In creating Sylvan Path, Sylvan Moonrise and Woodland Edge I used silk rods and silk cocoons, with a lot of hand stitching, and for By the Mulberry Tree I used the paper mulberry tree bark, also called kozo bark, to stitch on as the tree itself. 

As of 27 May 2017, there are several of my pictures on display at The Old Mill Gallery. These include Moonrise Grove (sold), Woodland Edge, Evening Heathland, By The Mulberry Tree, Dark Ocean, and Glen in Flower 2 (see here).

June's commission piece was of the Cader Idris and the Afon Mawddach, in Gwynedd, Wales, a birthday present for the mother of my client. I'm very pleased to say they were both delighted with the result! It seemed very appropriate to have used some black Welsh wool tops in this picture, too.

Two commissions in October kept me busy! At the beginning of the month I completed Washday for a lady who was moving to a new house with a laundry room, so that type of picture seemed appropriate; my original Washday picture, much smaller than this one, is in the 40 Degrees Laundry in Castle Douglas. Just finished at the end of the month was the commission piece, Galloway Hillside, with a small herd of Belted Galloways being the requested detail in this landscape. Thank you to my clients!
