Stephen Oliver Studio & Gallery

Stephen Oliver's studio and gallery is located at the Orchard Shopping Centre, Dartford. He has invited local artists to display their work with his for the next three months and I am taking up the offer. I'll put up three of mine this afternoon. Come and visit. Visit, too, his webpage - he keeps us up to date with what is going on in artistic endeavour.

Exhibiting in 2014

I have been looking at my September Folkestone photos - references for paintings. About half-a-dozen have been printed, one of them needs to be printed again to get at the details. This afternoon, I worked on a canvas and managed to get most of the drawing done and fixed. I plan to work at it tomorrow. While the paint dries I'll start another.

New Year

Happy New Year everybody.
The programme for 2014 looks really good yet again, thanks to the hard work of Penny.
I'm looking forward to a wonderful year of creativity.
My dream is that our exhibitions will display the diverse nature of our art society with works that are influenced by our different nationalities, cultures and environment.
Perhaps my pieces will 'prove' my Welshness. What will yours 'prove'?
Let's all get to work with gusto. (Does anyone know where he or she is?)

Pat and Friends

A good show at the Central Library. Worth a visit. Pat is prolific. Lots of interested visitors and sales have been good. It ends on Tuesday next.

The Easel

WOW! Ailsa's Easel is a joy! With my large screen monitor I can read without effort. Pictures are easy to see except for the few pixelated, but they are no problem. I am thrilled with the first issue, as we should all be. The Christmas hols. should give us time to reflect and write pieces for the Spring publication and that includes me. Thanks, Ailsa. Incidentally, I notice that there are 21 guests online while I type; usually there are no more than two or three.

The Easel Winter 2013 - Digital!

Cover page of The Easel Winter 2013The Easel is back, with a new design and a new editor. Thanks to Ailsa Chapman for taking on this important task for Bromley Art Society.

Gallery and me

Well, I managed to get one new pic onto the gallery but the caption needs to be tweaked by changing the file name on my pc. I tried to upload a .psd image and failed. That means I have to convert to .jpg images first. That is not a hassle. Now to get some more pics from my camera, so this wee episode must come to an end. Enjoy the day.

Gallery and me

I need to update my bit of the gallery. As I haven't been near it for a while, I will have to relearn how to add a new picture and remove some ole uns. Fun!


Request from Thelma - does anyone use recycled materials to make sculpture? Let her know, please.

The Easel

I am looking forward to the launch of The Easel this month. Have you contributed something?
