50 Paintings in 50 Days

P1070648

Starting on the 10th April and ending on Saturday the 29th of May I’ll be creating a small painting of Eigg Island every day…

50 paintings in 50 days!

Some will be impressionistic, some more abstract. They’ll each be 5×5 inches (£45 each) and proceeds from the paintings will go towards a two year project which celebrates the landscape and community of Eigg.

To be included on the mailing list, simply email me at rose.strang@gmail.com with the title: ‘Small Eigg Paintings’ and each day I’ll email you the painting of the day.

You’re not obliged to buy, but I think it’ll be fun to view a new painting each day. If you do decide to buy I’ll post the painting out to you within a week.

The two year Eigg project will celebrate the beautiful landscape of Eigg, its creative culture and community.

It begins with a trip to Eigg starting this Saturday the 5th of April, when I’ll be staying in a bothy with this beautiful and inspiring view of the mountains of Rum Island…

Part of the aim of this project is to tell the story of the Island of Eigg; From the struggle of the island’s inhabitants throughout Scotland’s changing history (and its near decimation as a community in past decades) to a celebration of its landscape and recent inspirational success as a community-bought island, which relies solely on renewable sources of fuel.

It ‘s a real inspiration in terms of caring for the environment

The resulting exhibitions for 2014 and 2015 in Edinburgh include Gallery Ten, The Whitespace Gallery and The Scottish Storytelling Centre where I’ll be exhibiting a range of paintings. The second and third exhibitions will include live performance with related art and archival images of Eigg, past and present.
