"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Christmas Greetings

Merry Christmas to all readers. 

This year has been one of exciting opportunities, making new friends, seeing others that I hadn't seen for ages and developing my work.

Already next year is promising to be just as fulfilling. After a short Christmas break first job will be to deliver the work to Doncaster Art Gallery for my solo show opening on 11th January 2014. In April, on 12th and 13th, I will be at The Same But Different Art Fair in the walled garden at Temple Newsam House in Leeds. A new show which promises to have an eclectic mix of artworks. In June I have been invited to show my work in the Biscuit Factory Summer Exhibition in Newcastle and at the end of the month on the 28th and 29th, I will probably be taking part in Art in the Pen at the Borderlands Exhibition Centre in Carlise. This event, again a new one, is being organised by the same team who organise Art in the Pen at The Craven Auction Mart in Skipton, which I will also probably be taking part in on 16th -17th August.

Once again Merry Christmas and thank you for reading.

It sounds like an exciting year to look forward to, Stuart. I wish I was still living near Carlisle, so that I could get along to the exhibition.

Hope you have a very good Christmas,
