Strathpeffer and beyond!

It’s always a pleasure to get the chance to exhibit paintings further afield so I’m delighted that some of my fishy paintings will be at the annual Strathpeffer Art Fair.

The show started today (Thursday November 23) and runs until Sunday. This is a huge exhibition and sale taking place at the village’s lovely Victorian pavilion. It’s my second year taking part alongside scores of Highland artists and I can thoroughly recommend it for a visit.

Opening hours are:
Friday 24th Nov – 10am-8pm
Saturday 25th Nov – 10am-6pm
Sunday 26th Nov – 10am-2pm

 

And because your Christmas shopping missions continue for a few more weeks, I’ll be at Castle Fraser, Inverurie, on Saturday and Sunday with the Exclusively Highlands event. More information here.

And for good measure, I’ll also be represented at a wee fair closer to home, at The Pagoda in Grantown. This event runs on Sunday only, 10am-2pm. Got a wee helper going along!

Carving and chrome

There’s a busy weekend coming up in Strathspey – lots of brilliant events for residents and visitors. I’m getting ready to run stalls with my mugs and pine prints at both. It’s great to be at local events – meeting old friends and new.

Saturday sees Carve Carrbridge, the popular chainsaw carving competition. It’s fascinating to watch the competitors create artworks out of massive pieces of wood. And Carrbridge is such a vibrant community – everyone turns out to support the event.

On Sunday I’ll be much closer to home at Motormania at Grantown. There’ll be scores of shiny vintage vehicles on display in the High Street, along with stalls and activities for all the family. I’m there with the Cairngorms Farmers Market, so there’ll be lots of food and craft to tempt you. Looking forward to a great weekend!

Elephants in the Pantry

It’s the start of a busy couple of weeks for me. As well as exhibition preparation, I’m going to be at a wee craft fair at a local deli, Elephants in the Pantry.

It’s running as part of the continuing Grantown 250 celebrations on Saturday June 25, from 10am. There’s going to be lots of other crafters and the chance to sample some of the shop’s delicious food! See Elephants’ Facebook page for more info.

I’ll have lots of mugs and coasters, with my drawings of animals, birds and of course, fishing flies – lots to choose from. See you there!

Looking down the street.

A wee drawing for you guys to look at. I had lots of fun working with bright sunny colours, drawing houses and flowers. The October holidays have been great and I’ve managed to work on a few little projects. I apologise about the lack of paintings appearing on the site, but promise to make time over Christmas to get some fishy pictures and paintings of Loch Mallachie done.
