With the passing of our Wonderful Queen, September was a time of mixed emotions. Sadness for the loss of our most celebrated monarch and then towards the latter part of the month a celebration of an exceptional life, with over 70 years of service dedicated to our great country. Ive always been a great fan of the royal family and what they bring to our nation and for the tireless selfless way they continue to serve the nation with dignity. The Queens passion for charitable causes was second to none, and I wanted to honour her memory by creating paintings at my live events that celebrated her fierce dedication to us all . September saw me create six live paintings at various different venues around the country, celebrating her late majesty and the assent of King Charles the third. The venues I created the paintings at included The National History museum, Lords and the Underglobe in London, both majestic venues with very patriotic supportive audiences. At one of the events I managed to break my record sale with my painting selling for 55k, a terrific feeling and achievement for me. I had the pleasure of painting Pudsey Bear the iconic children in need icon in my own way creating a design that incorporate real 24k gold which I love to use in my work. I really enjoyed the challenge, as well as creating a Manchester Town Hall piece inspired again by the dediacation of the queen. You’ll see below the the following paintings are union jack/flag inspired with plenty of 24k gold leaf within them. Its been a brilliant months with sales totalling around 150k with a large percentage going towards the charities involved.
