Art Exhibition

My latest art project of "Lady on the Beach" will be shown at Dundee Botanical Gardens open every day from 30th May to 7th June2015.
More information on the exhibitions page.

A summer trip to Islay and Jura in the Inner Hebrides gave John many ideas for a range of Scottish landscape watercolour paintings. The trip coincided with the annual whisky festival on Islay, an occasion not to be missed.

A range of contemporary stretched box canvas painted with large bold flowers and still life can be seen at Box Canvas Art and landscape paintings of Rait village in Perthshire at triptych paintings

John's Art Career
started working life in 1959 as a gardener in Dundee and his horticultural career advanced at a fast pace with travel all over Britain, and a head full of landscaping ideas, however, he always painted in his spare time as a form of art therapy.

Allotment Gardening Art
John rented a plot in 2006 on Dundee City Council's City Road Allotment Garden site to grow crops, and find a new source of ideas to paint with old sheds, greenhouses, fences and walls and dilapidated garden structures of great character perfect to capture on canvas.
Some of these paintings can be seen on this link to allotment gardening.

John is also experimenting with growing a new fruit crop of Saskatoons on his allotment garden.
Have a look on the progress of John's superfood Saskatoons , the new berry to hit the fruit garden. The bushes produced their first small crop of fruit in July 2007, then heavier crops were produced in all the following years.
The success was featured on television when Jim McColl from the Beechgrove Garden filmed John, his allotment and his saskatoon adventures, then the following year the saskatoons were featured on Landward TV.

More information on my saskatoon page.
