Lisle on TV

Here I am outside the STV Studios where I had been giving a rather uncomfortable piece to camera to promote the new exhibition!

Be there or be square

Here is your invitation to the show of the year!

And here's a poem by Seamus Heaney titled Personal Helicon

As a child, they could not keep me from wells 
And old pumps with buckets and windlasses. 
I loved the dark drop, the trapped sky, the smells 
Of waterweed, fungus and dank moss. 

One, in a brickyard, with a rotted board top. 
I savoured the rich crash when a bucket 
Plummeted down at the end of a rope. 
So deep you saw no reflection in it. 

A shallow one under a dry stone ditch 
Fructified like any aquarium. 
When you dragged out long roots from the soft mulch 
A white face hovered over the bottom. 

Others had echoes, gave back your own call 
With a clean new music in it. And one 
Was scaresome, for there, out of ferns and tall 
Foxgloves, a rat slapped across my reflection. 

Now, to pry into roots, to finger slime, 
To stare, big-eyed Narcissus, into some spring 
Is beneath all adult dignity. I rhyme 
To see myself, to set the darkness echoing. 


I just found out that the plural of fox is a skulk
That is all

Norrie Nails It!

Seeing as it was a gloriously sunny day here in Edinburgh, I decided to take a break and popped up to UnionGallery. Alison and Rob have curated what is perhaps their best show yet. Norrie Harman's work is something else! You must go see this!
Here's a link to the gallery LINK and here's a darn fine review LINK

Here are four painters discussing the show
Me, Gareth Beare, Alison Auldjo and Trevor Jones

That is all

Working on this and three other paintings for the show in July. Tired. Stressed. Bah!
That is all
