Paintings and PR........

I know, I know, once again I have FAILED in keeping up with my Blog posts. This isn't to say that nothing has been happening in Baroque&Roll land........

Firstly I'd like to show you my new Flamingo painting.

There is still some finishing to do on the top left hand corner. Its looking pretty sweet for now though! I have several flamingo paintings I'd like to complete. They will be used for the dining chair designs and shall feature in 'The Collection'. With a series of different flamingo designs, I'd like to create a Dining Room Chair Set. This would accompany a dining table to match. In a grand setting this would flamingo fantastic!!!

There are various other projects I am working on at the moment. One of which is this table. 

I have been working in conjunction with a new fashion and homewares boutique opening November 14th in Monpellier, Cheltenham. This table has the same skull design I have used on the dining chair design, which has been commissioned by the owner of the shop after seeing the chair. There is a final coat of Farrow&Ball's 'Railings' oil eggshell paint to complete, and then 2 layers of 'hard as nails' varnish to protect the artwork. I suffered with a touch of artists block for this piece, but, after commitment and determination I am delighted with the results-phew!

I've saved the best piece of news till last! 

A journalist from the local paper, The Gloucestershire Echo, got in touch after seeing my work. Turns out, they wanted to do a feature on Baroque&Roll and myself in the 'Weekend' supplement of the paper which is an addition in Saturdays issue. A telephone interview took place with Sally, who was so so lovely. The week following that, a photographer came to the studio to shoot some of my recent pieces. 
The following Saturday's issue featured a double page spread on Baroque&Roll-its FABULOUS!!! 
Its a great starting PR piece, with hopefully many more to come......
