A couple of new additions to this corner courtesy of Green Gallery in Buchlyvie. I don’t know if I ever mentioned it on here before but I studied painting at The Glasgow School of Art many moons ago and, whilst I don’t practice right now, I still have a deep rooted passion for art. Even working on this post got me thinking two things – firstly that I should paint again and secondly that I should write a post about buying art (what to buy, how to buy and buying on a budget).
But in the meantime I just wanted to share these new pieces, the most beautiful little painting of the French countryside by Carol Moore and these slightly eccentric papier mache birds, and I truly adore them both. The painting was £150 whilst the birds were under £30 each (one of them lights up too which, in my heart, just adds to its quirky appeal) and I like that, in terms of original art, that makes them both pretty affordable. More in depth thoughts on that subject coming up in another post but, for now, a quick tip – Green Gallery are hosting a Christmas pop up, curated by a friend of mine, this weekend in my neighbouring village, Bridge of Weir, so if you happen to be local then I one hundred percent recommend stopping by (especially because this little beauty, by the same artist, will be there…).

I am working with Green Gallery but this post does not form part of that partnership – just really wanted to share what I think is going to be a super lovely local event.
