still quiet light
This seems like the perfect place to spend an hour when there’s no one around. Unfortunately it’s a completely fictional place with each element put together to make up the composition. But I guess it must say something about me that I keep creating these quiet comfortable scenes.

Affordable Art Fair[singlepic id=881 w=400 h=550 float=]
If you pop in and out of this blog then you’ll know I’ve been working on a series of interiors. They are destined for the Affordable Art Fair in London in March.
The Affordable Art Fair’s formula is relatively simple: a relaxed, unstuffy environment and lots of good quality contemporary art. AAF is the leading showcase for affordable contemporary art. As a fine art fair promoting original art, AAF is for galleries and dealers rather than individual artists. At least three artists need to be shown on a stand, all artists must be living and all work must be original and priced under the ceiling of £3,000/€5,000/$10,000.[singlepic id=882 w=400 h=450 float=]
As a move away from the traditional gallery environment, the fairs are often sited in a unique location (London’s is in leafy Battersea Park and Amsterdam’s is at the Westergasfabriek – a converted gasworks) and, combined with a buzzy atmosphere, they are an enjoyable environment in which to browse and buy art.
The Tallentyre Gallery in the Uk spotted my work at the Art Fair in the RDS in November and it they will be exhibiting my paintings at the London AAF.
It’s all pretty exciting and a big step (not to mention a hugh amount of work) but I’m thoroughly looking forward to every moment of it.
