Louise Lacaille is known to many as one of the friendly and knowledgeable staff of Greyfriar's Art Shop, so I'm pleased to put her artwork to the fore for once. I am personally indebted for many colour mixing tips and recommendations as Louise has a serious stash of colour facts in her head. Her own work reflects this in the quiet but skilled mixes and subtle gradations used in landscapes and jellyfish studies, among other subjects!

Due to this, and the usual overwhelming workload, we are not taking in any new framing work until after the break. We have become busier and busier over the years that we have taken in framing jobs as the area has lost at least four other framers; some have retired or moved away, but we were very sad to lose Paul Clark of the Carson Clark Gallery who passed away recently. A great guy and hard working small business owner who will I'm sure be missed by many.
See you soon; before we know it the Festival will be gearing up and the city will have it's mad month.
