London, calling once again!
For the second summer in a row I’ve had the pleasure and honour of painting “live” at the Graham Fine Art gallery in London’s Crouch End.
Live demonstrations are a wonderful opportunity to get to know the gallery’s clients and for them to see my process.
It’s also a nice change for me to leave the seclusion of my Tuscany studio and soak up the vibrance and energy of London and the Crouch End neighbourhood. My live-painting sessions at Graham Fine Art bookend my pop-up studio time in Oxford this summer.
This year my painting process has been delightfully documented with a series of short videos, created and produced by talented gallery assistant Carolina Maggio and Team GFA.
GFA’s own Graham Powell and Carolina are attentive to all details of running and managing a gallery… and of course keeping things exceedingly fun & lively.
In the “Mallorca” video, I am actually creating a painting from the very beginning of my process. This is the second half of the “Mallorca” diptych which took approximately three weeks to complete…
In the gallery, inspiration abounds… as a result I’ve created numerous smaller works as well.
The end of this year’s summer painting sojourn was celebrated with an evening soiree with some good friends in attendance.
We so enjoyed our summer as Crouch End locals…. Loving every minute and looking forward to returning again next year. Many many thanks to Graham and Carolina and all at Graham Fine Art for a fabulous summer!
