Just a few days left to catch Carol Hopley's show before the birds take over Bon Papillon!
The submissions are coming in thick and fast from artists across Scotland and I imagine that Wednesday night will be a long hanging session...
As has become the norm, we will be showing plenty of artists who have become regular contributors over the last two years, with a few new ones thrown into the mix!
Stanley Bird (yes, his real name) will be showing with us for the first time - making the trip over from the west to bring us his excellent and meticulous studies, with a pattern obsession to rival my own!!
I have managed to sneak a few birds in between commissions over the last couple of months; some recognisable, some not to be found in the field guide...
Leo du Feu
What I am really liking about this show, besides the amazing amount of work from some great artists on one of my favourite subjects (birds), is the variety of technique, treatment and media. From Leo du Feu's field studies to Mary Archibald's textile collages, there really is a 'something for everyone' feel about this collection.
I have been dying to post a couple of paintings that I have recently finished as commissions, but both are awaiting revelation to their intended owners, so I must be patient...
