Rugby Jerseys

We don’t don’t “Do Things by Halves”  ……..with three jerseys that would be literally difficult.  Oxford Dictionary says of “not doing things by halves” that it implies doing something thoroughly and extravagantly.  Sounds about right!    1200 x 480mm framed in black ash and glazed with cor liner to set the jerseys down about 25mm.


Panoramic Watercolours.

We frequently frame multiple photos in either horizontally or vertically.  This is different; the images are watercolours of South Wales locations.  Length 49 inches and 13 inches height.  Impressive. Framing used is Ash and the mount colour is Antique White.

Bays and Beaches

Two, out of a dozen works from Sian Mcgill.  Both feature Gower places and reflect the limestone and gorse so prevelant.  Acrylic on board with pallet knife and brush application.  Framed in ash with a coat of suitable wash.  Go see more at or Sian McGill on facebook.  


Mumbles Pier has an area of rooms given over to exhibiting art.

Called Little Stone Gallery (see Facebook).  The show of work by Adrian Hughes is a must-see!  On the opening night as a surprise for him a family brought along their father, a farmer from Lampeter.  Seeing his portrait was some surprise and turned him into the celebrity visitor of the evening.

Repairs and Restoration

This Jack Jones oil on stretcher;  a typical work depicting a Welsh valley scene with an always-present coal tip.  Serious damage, one example of which is shown spoiled an interesting work.  Sucessfully corrected and probably even Jack would be pleased.

And Today?

So many people used the Mumbles train 100 years ago! It seems the car,  because of the need to find parking, has reduced the visitor numbers.  Good to see this old photo and frame it for a customer.


IMG_20170915_1211443Lovely memories for this marriage souvenier.  Obviously a lot of work went into making this item.  Before you point out the geographic inacuracies of the placement of Sicily and Sardinia…..yes we know,  but were allowed to do that so it composed to a suitable size.  Finished it measured a 1000 x 660mm,
