This is just a quick update on the print project I posted about a few days ago.
I’m in the midst of various applications, also still discussing approaches for taking a percentage of print sales to go towards charity.
The idea is that a third of proceeds from sales of prints go towards charities related to the landscape painted. All the charities I’ve spoken to have loved the idea, so it’s just a case of pinning down a few details.
The print series will include landscapes of Eigg, the Borders, Lindisfarne and the Bass Rock at North Berwick.
Atzi Muramatsu and I are currently putting together the final details for our application to the DAIWA Foundation and Creative Scotland. This is for a creative residency on Japan – a development of our approach to the ‘Eigg Island’ project, you can read more about it Here.
Hopefully in Spring next year we’ll be on the beautiful island of Yakushima in Kyushu. (We had considered Sakurajima but with volcanic eruption alerts it might not be the most pragmatic choiceas it can restrict travel).
In October I’ll finally have time to work on paintings for the RSA, I’m really looking forward to being back in painting mode, it’s all been very admin’ focussed recently!
