My Girl (plus friend!)

It's a little bit mad here at the studio just now. I'm putting the finishing touches to some new acrylic paintings for http://www.3harbours.co.uk/ which starts on Friday night at http://www.seashoregallery.co.uk/. Nothing like last minute!
This Arts Festival is on for 9 days. So plenty time to take in some art whilst being awed by the surrounding villages. Have you ever been to Preston Pans, Cockenzie and Port Seton? They are stunning little harbour villages and they will be filled with art for the whole of the festival.
You can catch my work in The Seashore Gallery and also at my Exhibition in Cockenzie Methodist Church - opposite the power station.

So, as soon as 3 Harbours finishes I'm straight into getting organised for Balcarres Horse Trials which takes place on the 14th - 17th of June.
Balcarres Estate is is situated in the heart of the East Neuk of Fife in Colinsburgh.

I'll have even more new paintings on sale here. Limited edition prints and art cards will be available too. If you are considering a commission, for yourself or someone else, come along and have a chat. I'll have examples of previous commissions on show to give you an idea of what I can do. In the mean time why not have a look at my commissions page here: 
or at my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MathersArt 

Thank you!

Open Studios Event and some other news

This weekend I have opened my studio to the public as part of Open Studios North Fife

running galloping horse equestrian art

My studio is open 10am to 6pm tomorrow too. Some studios are open during the following weekend too and although I wasn't originally going to do the second weekend, I've been asked by visitors if they could come along next week. So...watch this space. I think I might just stay open all week. I'll be working away in the studio anyway so if nothing else, it's a good excuse to keep everything tidy for another week!
I'll let you all know before Tuesday for definite. However, if you would ever like to pay an impromptu visit just call me (and give me some warning to tidy up!).

Thanks to everyone who has made it along, and to everyone who is planning on coming along tomorrow. You're in luck - the Bakehouse is still providing delicious cakes to whet your appetite... if i can restrain myself from munching them all in the mean time.

Now for some news: Over the next two months I am to be exhibiting at The 3 Harbours Festival in Cockenzie, East Lothian and also in the Seashore Gallery during the 2nd to the 10th of June. 
From 14th - 17th June I am very excited to be exhibiting at Balcarres International Horse Trials.

There's more news for July but I'm going to wait for confirmation before I jinx anything.
