Swan Painting -- Affordable Art Show Clyde Hotel 24th 25th November

This is a busy week for me as I am preparing for the Affordable Art Show in the Clyde Hotel Ballsbridge, Dublin, which is my first Art Fair. I am also working on several paintings at the same time. The art fair is open from 10am to 6pm both Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th November, and I will have all my available paintings for sale there framed and ready to go. I will also be selling prints of the majority of my recent paintings.

The above painting, I completed this week and will also be available. On another point the blog has been viewed now by just over 100,000 people since it began, and that is without me actively promoting it. Now I have to get back to doing things, so this is a quick update. Jim

Reworking old painting of the Rocky mountains

The above is a painting I commenced when I was just 19. It has been in this unfinished state for many years, until I decided to "rescue" it. There had been a number of problems in the painting, with composition, perspective and overall colour scheme. The second and third photos, show an as yet unfinished painting but are steps on the way to the final reworking. Here I show them for you to enjoy and feel free to comment on what you think about it so far. Thanks Jim
