See a page-by-page view of my previous SBP sketchbooks by clicking the link below. In 2012 my first sketchbook was titled:’ My Mother’s Last Christmas’, a diary of the week I spent with her when she wasn’t expected to live for much longer. Two years later I submitted a sketchbook called ‘Inside Out’ which was a series of self portraits.
Following the postponement of showing the two Operation Portrait films on BBC’s The One Show, the new date that is again pencilled in is Wednesday the 11th of February. Photographs above show Alan Amis posing for me in the Goat Street Gallery, St Davids for Operation Portrait.
I was pleased to welcome you all to my new year open studio-both local regulars and new visitors from near and far, including a couple who had seen my work on exhibition in London and travelled down to visit me in my studio.
Transmission dates are pencilled in for Monday 19th and Tuesday 20th of January, 2015 but are subject to change. One film features Grahame Hurd-Wood and his ongoing project painting portraits of every resident in St Davids, Pembrokeshire. The second film shows myself and eleven other artists rising to the challenge of drawing as many portraits as we could in one day. This took place on a lovely sunny day at The Goat Street Gallery, which overlooks St Davids Cathedral, on the 7th of August 2014.
One of my three new paintings that I am submitting to the Queens Hall Gallery in Narberth for their Winter Open Exhibition. This painting entitled “Yang 88 Style” is one of a series I have been working on that brings together my painting and my daily practice of Tai Chi.
Exhibition opens on 27th October and runs until 20th December. www.orielqueenshallgallery.org.uk

Fourteen of my semi-abstract paintings inspired by music, sound and vibration were on display throughout September at Ty Solar. Visitors responded positively, enjoying seeing my work displayed in a domestic setting. Ty Solar is the prototype sustainable home developed by Glen Peters, Western Solar’s CEO.
Pleased to be invited to take part in filming yesterday for a future programme of BBC’s The One Show about Grahame Hurd-Wood’s Portrait Project to portray every resident in St Davids. Eleven artists working in The Goat Street Gallery, St Davids produced all these portraits in a six hour session on Thursday 7th August. Great day, great company, great art mixed with lots of sunshine and amazing views of the Cathedral. Keep an eye on my Blog – I’ll update as soon as I know time and date of broadcast.
