First the good news - we have sold another painting so that makes it five paintings and seven prints in the first two weeks of our 'Double Vision 2014' exhibition in the Gallery Suite at Bridlington Spa. We still have almost three weeks to go (three weeks for you to come and see us!) so naturally we are very pleased. However everything is relative as dear old Bertie whatshisname used to say. In our previous exhibitions here at Bridlington Spa we shared with a group of mates and there was always six of us.This meant we used to hang about twenty pieces between us. Now twelve out of twenty sold just leaves eight but when you have seventy pieces - well it's a slightly different story. At the moment I have a few more than eight left..well fifty eight to be precise. This would take up a lot of space behind my sofa so we hope to shift a few more! Anyway this painting is one of my favourite views - looking back towards our lovely little town from Dane's Dyke. I have painted it on many occasions. This one is all about the shimmering light in the sky above the bay. One visitor remarked that the sky reminded her of England's most famous artist - JMW Turner. High praise indeed and even if nowhere near the truth ... it is still very flattering to be compared to the great man. So if there any film producers reading this who are thinking of doing another film - I am available for a lot less than Timothy Spall! Glenn
