Balnacra Arts & Pottery by Vicky Stonebridge

an ART car

There has been a couple of issues with my new lovely fast & swish stopgap car;
1) MPG
2)being a saloon I can’t fit big canvases in.
Anyway due to the complexities of a two car household with lots of work miles, no public transport and dodgy olde bangers, the shiny stopgap car needed to be passed on and so I went hunting another one. The route happened to take in three of the galleries which exhibit my work, logistics and car juggling required me travelling the route three times… don’t try to understand, I’m getting to the point soon!

New car is WIN, big canvases fit in it!

I managed to collect 4 paintings from Tore Gallery which have been waiting for me for a while after being on display at Inverness airport over the winter. Its very strange to see works from only a few months ago, how different my current paintings are!
These are the ones I collected;

Spinning Lesson ( small watercolour)

Paddling on Skye ( estate car size )

BA Teams  Canvas 80cm x 60cm

Rainbow over training 80cm x 60cm

All of these are framed and available, mail me for Prices! I’m not sure if I’ll be doing any more representational work in the foreseeable future, It goes down well locally but I have months of illustrative and comics work ahead of me.
On todays new Car safari I also popped into Beauly Gallery which has a lovely range of paintings sculptures and crafty objects, faerie boots for babies and all sorts of wonders. My favorites are works by Suzanne Gyseman, inspirational!
Another wonderful Gallery which has some of my work currently hanging is the Inchmore Gallery. It was excellent to catch up with the owner/boss lady Jane and put the world to rights over a cup of tea. there is always a fantastic and exciting range of new work on show there, its well worth making the detour around the Beauly firth to do this art trail.

    Your new ride looks good. It seems like an essential thing, no? A two car family often does a lot of coming and going out of the house, and the need for transport is often integral.

    Anyway, the last pic looks good. The rainbow gives the painting a bright feeling.
