How many paintings can a painting propper prop ..?

As many as there are skirting boards in a room!

I was ill-equipped, it turned out, to hang the kinds of paintings I’d taken. I’ll have several yards of transparent thread and a roadie who’s good on ladders next time.

Propping works though. It has an air of the Left Bank – laissez faire with a hint of Disques Bleu and an inscrutable shrug.

There are some more to come, but for now I give you – Strayfish Arts at Sakala, on the art trail with Caroline Darke and Andie Armstrong*:

Steyning Arts Trail; August 28th – 30th and September 4th – 5th. Free shrug unless I’m holding a coffee.

*Yes, from Sky Arts Portrait Artist series, that one! Jamie Ampleforth, another Steyning Sky Arts Portrait Artist contender is at venue 2, Church Cottage, Vicarage Lane.

New Art Web site!

Selling isn’t my strong point but there’s only so much framed, mounted, unframed, unmounted, large, small, itty-bitty, or ginormous pieces of arty product I can keep around without it becoming a trip hazard or a cats’ scratching post, so I’ve taken advice and launched a small gallery on Art Web. Here it is Strayfisharts.artweb.com,┬áplease take a look – and please let me know if there’s anything that needs clarifying or de-glitching!
