And Now For Something Completely Different!

The Sandy Murphy RSW RGI PAI exhibition comes to an end this Sunday, and I have enjoyed every minute of it.  I have wanted to hold this exhibition for such a long time, and I'm amazed to say that it exceeded my stellar expectations.

Seventeen paintings are going to excited buyers, and this has been a dream in itself, but what I didn't expect was the overwhelming feedback from every visitor.  This included Sandy fans, people new to Sandy's work, and a lot of well known Scottish artists who didn't want to miss the show.


I know we must never look backwards, but I feel a tinge of sadness that it will be over on Sunday.  It has been such a positive experience, and a bonding one too.  I have never had so many discussions about art and painting, and what it is about an artist's use of paint that can make the heart flutter.  I revelled in realising that I am not the only one who holds Sandy's exceptional talent in such high regard.

So I guess what I really need now is something to take my mind off it . . . . .

A distraction.  Something striking, thought-provoking and very, very different . . . .


Something like . . .  well what do you know!  Here comes Margaretann Bennett with a stunning solo exhibition of new works from 23 October.  Ignore at your peril!


Yes, that might just do it!

Thanks for reading!


  1. Thank you so much for the invitation, I am glued to my screen.

  2. You're welcome Anna. They are just stunning and a few have sold from the invitation already. They are all up on the website. I'm trying to decide which one is coming home with me!
