30 Jan 2012 ... New painting finished!

The Shard is London's newest and tallest building yet to grace the stunning City skyline. The Shard is due to be finished in May. I have painted the view showing the unfinished building under construction with the crane on top. What a view that crane driver must have had. 
My new painting, and the print, is formed from two square images that are designed to be displayed next to each other.
We will publish this as a Collectors Edition so that the image can be licensed for use as a card etc.

I've been busy!

We really have been busy over the Christmas and New year holiday period. But now to reveal all!
Fran and I, are arranging a series of shows in our retail gallery partners during 2012. 
It is called.....drumroll please....
The exhibitions are all about our London based art. That is paintings, prints and cards with a London theme. I guess that most of my readers already know that Cityscapes of London are among my favourite subjects. But did you also know that my wife Fran Slade has also created a collection of portraits showing London costermongers, market traders, eccentrics and other cockney characters.

Here is a link to a page showing Fran's Cockney Characters.

And this just one of them.  He is a Chelsea Pensioner.

Meanwhile I have been painting some new London views. The biggest is a whopping 5 feet by 2ft 6ins. It shows the building of Londons latest skyscraper, The Shard.

It is nearly finished. watch this space to see it unveiled very soon.

The first gallery to host our show will be;
'The Only Place for Pictures' in Islington.

The first exhibition kicks off mid February.  More later.
