Babbity Bowster Still Life
Music session days at Babbity Bowster in Glasgow are usually busy affairs but I managed to set up this wee still life on a quiet, sunny afternoon. Pop into the bar on a Saturday afternoon for some great music, atmosphere and refreshment. [caption id="attachment_774" align="alignnone" width="150"]

Closer to Home
A bit closer to home this time.
Due to my inability to deal with anything of a practical nature where a garden is concerned, I left this old clothes pole to rust away till it became the bearer for some of Marian's lovely colourful flower pots during Scotland's excuse for a summer - I'm glad I did!
Glasgow Church Doors
I have drawn and painted many churches in many countries over the years but this summer I focused on some Glasgow church doorways to brighten up the portfolio.
The first is the Ramshorn Kirk in Glasgow's Merchant City. The Merchant's graveyard to the rear originally extended to the front under what is now Ingram Street. The location of the graves of 18th century Glasgow printers, the Foulis Brothers, is still marked on the pavement. Coincidently, one of the Glasgow School of Art buildings I studied in was the Foulis building.[caption id="attachment_783" align="alignnone" width="150"]

This is a clip from a recent Sunday Times Magazine article on a house in Devon which will be featured on Channel 4's Grand Designs. The programme's producers contacted me for permission to use footage which includes a painting of mine (see wall on right).
It's an amazing spiral designed house inspired by the shape of a fossil - you can catch the programme on Channel 4, this Wednesday (11th Oct) at 9pm.
