It is a lovely honour to be asked to be a judge at an art exhibition, particularly when it's the quality of the annual Paisley Art Institute Exhibition.  I spent the morning perusing the large exhibition, now in it's 125th year.

What a pleasure it is for me to spend time viewing such a variety of quality works.  The icing on the cake is to be invited to choose my very favourite and watch as the little award banner is mounted below the painting.

The Smithy Gallery Award is in its second year and once again, I am delighted with my choice.  The exhibition opens on 10th May, and you will just have to go and view the exhibition to see if you agree with my choice!

I'm now back to the gallery to enjoy the second week of Fifty Shades of Glasgow.  We have fifty beautiful small paintings by Carol Dewart, 18 of which are already sold, but there are plenty left triggering memories and tantalising people as we speak.  Here are a couple of my favourites which are still available:

Love, love, love!  They're all so full of character.

The exhibition, including sculpture by Lesley Carruthers can be viewed on the website:

It continues until 12th May.  Don't miss it!

Thanks for reading!
