I was asked to do a FB interview by my friend Carole Robb. She is the artistic director of the Rome Art Program. Carole and I were at school together and while there went to Glasgow School of Art evening classes in the late 50s. It's good to see we are still involved in what we love to do best.
You can read the interview on the Rome Art Program website:
This year I was very pleased, at the RSW, to receive the City of Glasgow College Award.
It was very interesting to be given a tour of that amazing building by Sandra Gunn and see where my painting will be hung. Their Art Foundation has a very interesting collection of art works from both their students and their Purchase Awards.
The building itself is such a beautiful space with tremendous facilities.
I took part, with Janet Melrose, in an RSW “workshop” at this year’s Annual Exhibition. As Janet and I walk and draw together during the winter we thought we would talk about this and show examples of our different approaches to the same subject. It has been a very interesting experience.
2016 Qingdao International Watercolour Biennale
I have been very pleased to be invited to take part in this watercolour exhibition. It has been very interesting taking part in this large exhibition and sending work of to China for the first time. The paintings that were sent were Shore Uncovered, Winter Beach and Winter Hill 2.
