After the near sell out of my limited edition publication ‘Passport to Paint’, celebrating forty years of travelling and painting the world, I exhibited my new paintings of ‘The Mississippi Blues Delta’ at Wimbledon Fine Art in April/May of this year.
I have now decided to return to The South of France and the Cote D’Azur in September after a thirty three year gap to paint the special ’southern light’ that prevails there in late summer.
These works will accumulate to form the basis of my next exhibition in October 2016 at Wimbledon Fine Art.
Whilst in France I also hope to be working with a pottery in Aix en Provence to produce a series of limited edition plates I designed whilst in Mallorca earlier this summer . I also intend to spend some time on the coast around St Tropez to make studies for a series of large oils to be painted back in the studio in London later this year, with smaller oils, watercolours and studies for the 2016 exhibition.
I am also in talks with Barbados for a return exhibition to produce new images for an exhibition at the new marina, Port Ferdinand in 2017/18. Additionally, I am in talks with Los Angeles to mount another one man exhibition there in Spring 2016, following my first exhibition there in 1990.
Finally, I am in discussion with Sydney and Brisbane, to visit with a view to a series of paintings of Australia for a future show to be exhibited both in London and Australia, hopefully in 2018/19.
