    I didn’t want to spoil the impact, so I only had a very quick spin through the “Cyclists” gallery on your website, but I really like them.

    Looking forward to it!

    I’ve flicked through the online book, but it seems sadly lacking in wood stores, tractors and whatnot 🙁

    If I could make a living doing stuff like that I’d be the happiest man this side of Suez, until then I’ve got to paint.

    bugger – I’ll be up on the 16th (and am most Mondays) so will miss the opening night. Hopefully will try and drop by the following Monday then.

    Mods please feel free to moderate this if it’s deemed self serving.

    I’ve got an exhibition opening on June 17th with Panter and Hall on Pall Mall.

    It’s a bit of a toe in the water exhibition. In the past I’ve had a few one man shows down there but this is something more meaningful. I feel as though I wanted to do it.

    It’s a mix of still life and cyclist paintings some of which I’ve painted since the catalogue was produced.

    If you are around on the evening of the 17th you’d be most welcome to come to the opening.

    Looks marvellous! I’ll be in London some time over the next couple of weeks – prob not on the 17th, though – so will make an effort to detour via Pall Mall.

    I’ve just been framing the last two painting for the show. Both are oil on board and 48×48, with variable wheel sizes and tread patterns.

    I think I made a god job of his legs and bike.

    You talented old so and so. I’ll get down there and have a look, thanks for he heads up.

    By the way I cannot let this pass but has anyone made a comment about the studio image in the catalogue of your good self ? Paintings of flowers and citrus fruits done by someone with a look that says “buy one of these or you’ll be seeing my skee-an doo” 🙂

    Vanity dictates that it was taken twenty five years ago.

    Looks fascinating – shame it isn’t opening a bit later in the evenings or else I would get down there too.

    I always find I do my best work after the critical deadline has passed.

    Ive always admired Matisse and since there is an exhibition of his cutouts at the Tate, I thought I’d paint an Homage.

    The show opens tomorrow evening. June 17th, please look in if you are passing. I’d rather talk shite about bikes than wax lyrical about art.

    Nice. I will get down and take a look.

    Here’s a tale from the opening night. In 1990 I painted a triptych for a patron in London. It was a huge commission in scale, location and possibility. The panels were 10 x 6, it was hung in the Adelphi Building in John Adam St, just off the Strand. As I was in London I swung by the Adelphi to see if it was still there as I understood the building had changed hands. I was saddened to see it had gone. C’est la vie.

    So, I’m at the opening and man and his wife introduce themselves. They have some of my paintings they are keen to show me. We shoot the breeze and he from nowhere mentions the Adelphi paintings. Turns out he was the agent who oversaw the sale of the building for it’s owner, Bob Manoukian, the guy who commissioned the triptych. The building sold for £350,000,000! However there were strings attached, the first was that the Armenian flag should continue to fly over the Adelphi, the second was that Bob kept the triptych. They may be in a shed somewhere, but they’ll be in Bob’s shed.

    To say I was happy was an understatement. I even had a second glass of champagne.

    ‘Rainbow Man really reminds me of Doig. Lovely work’

    Thanks. I saw the Doig show in Edinburgh last year. It was pretty special in places. I’d love to try and paint on that scale.

    Just had a very pleasant mooch around the exhibition with the very chatty and friendly Matthew Hall, he the Hall of Panter & Hall.

    Highly recommend any Londonerists in the vicinity drop in if you can.

    Stunning stuff, McM, particularly liked the new poppies and black vase. PS one of your cyclists is far too cheap, I may be forced to purchase it!

    When is it on to MC?

    I doubt I’ll make the smoke until August at the earliest…

    Cheers Stoner. I’ve known Matthew for years he’s a super guy. The black vase painting was one of those that really flowed.
