Last month my friend asked me to go with her to look at and possibly buy a print by Dungan Macgregor http://www.demontfortfineart.net/events/PDF/DMAC%20In%20Attendance%20Invite_Gallery3.pdf
She had an invitation for the evening so jumping at the chance i went with her.
His work is very bold and energetic and paints mainly about his relationship with the sea. Acrylic paint is applied thickly, mostly with a palette knife and this makes his paintings very spontaneous.
After viewing all of the paintings some originals and some limited edition prints and after two glasses of bubbly!! my friends mind was made up and she went for the beach huts, added to her excitement the man himself even signed the back of the print.
This purchase called for a small celebration so afterwards we raised a glass to my friend (and her painting) for appreciating art and the starving artist!!! (well something like that anyway)
It now hangs proudly in her kitchen and she say's it makes her happy every time she looks at it, and thats what buying a piece of artwork is all about.

Happy Mother's day or as our Vicar likes to point out Mothering Sunday. This year i was lucky enough not to receive the present that i donated for the school Mother's day stand as i did last year Hoorah!!!! I also received flowers(Tesco's finest) and three lovely cards from my own budding artists, one of which was fromTinkerbell the cat (he's very nifty with a few crayons and a felt tip!!!)
Hope you all had a nice day as i certainly did .
