"In a Very Old Pub"

 2009 oil on canvas 30 x 28 in.
Just saw "World's End" and then brought up this painting and the place it depicts: the Wykeham Arms in Winchester. It won the Good Pub Guide's Town Pub of the Year 2013. Congratulations Wykeham Arms! You still look great after 258 years!

So I'm basically showing at City Art from now until the end of January! They're open Wednesday - Sunday noon - 9pm with openings on the first Friday of every month from 7 - 10pm, so any time you go in the next 5 months, you'll see my paintings in the front room along with other gallery members' art.
September:  oil paintings on canvatex (canvas that is in sheets like paper), matted and framed.  People always assume these are photographs at first look! Bar and restaurant scenes from Paris, San Francisco and England.
October:  a mix of oil on canvas and the canvatex paintings, ranging from 10 x 10 in. to 30 x 28 in. - united by the opulent motifs of ornate gold frames, mirrors, and lighting fixtures.
November:  Day of the Dead
December, and January 2014:  Musicians
