…..Just for the record…

We have ramed a few discs and LP’s over the years.  This one in an attractive colour and sleeve deserves exhibiting.

Hooray! Summer is on the Way!

Now that we are past the Equinox, those balmly summer days are on the way and all the ‘beasts and chills’ of the last four months are history.  Hooray!  Viki at vikicartoons.com is celebrating it with an appropriate poster,

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 sianmcgill.com or Sian McGill on facebook.  

Surprise

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.
