You must have seen those souvenir T-Shirts … you know the ones… ‘I ❤️ NY’, ‘I ❤️ Berlin’, ‘I ❤️ Barcelona’ etc? Well, a lovely young man we know has just started his own little convenience store in The Longhouse beach bar at Freshwater East. We just love small business and we also love Freshwater East, and so Lee has designed a really cool souvenir T-Shirt just for the shop. The unique ‘I ❤️ Fresh’ tee is available in both adult and child sizes and you can buy yours ONLY in Jack’s little shop.
So I adore Lee’s art. He is so just so wonderfully creative and so damn talented. However, every so often he produces something that I find a little bewildering. Just lately he has been bashing and polishing some of your regular type, kitchen silver foil. The finished hard silver ball even has a £1 coin buried deep in its heart (I’m not sure why). Lee tells me these balls can be created with absolutely anything held tightly in the centre and when one example he mentioned was cremated ashes I realised where my final destination is going to be!
I think they are crazy and Lee thinks they are cool … who are you standing with Lee or me?
Yesterday was the last day of Lee’s exhibition. There were lots of lovely comments in the visitor book and positive feedback from people we talked with. Some of his work that we framed especially for the exhibition have now found wall space in the bungalow. ‘Bathing Belle’ and ‘Sunlight on Glasses’ are both now hanging in my dressing room. I love them both. It makes me smile to remember one young visitor to the exhibition, a little boy of about 6 or 7, who absolutely loved the gigantic skull and roses but looked at ‘Sunlight on Glasses’ with puzzlement upon his face …
“Miss” said the little boy, “why hasn’t he finished this one?”
What do you say huh?
So, I have mostly spent today hanging all Lee’s amazing work at The Torch Theatre in Milford Haven and I am so happy with the space, lighting and how it all looks there! Even whilst I was preparing the room visitors to The Torch were popping in to the gallery and gave me wonderful feedback about Lee’s work. Lee spent the morning tattooing at the studio and arrived just as the last piece was being hung. The exhibition is officially open and we are looking forward to our special viewing on Saturday 7th April at 7pm.
Blinking heck I am one very proud wife … ❤️
Stranded in Pembroke, knee deep in snow, and unable to open the studio meant just one thing … time to paint!
This pair of angry eagles, inspired by a Sailor Jerry old school tattoo design, is the result of those snow bound few days!
As always canvas prints are available to order … oh and don’t forget if there is something special that YOU would like in a pencil drawing or on a canvas we can help … partner, kids, pet, home , cars … anything really … we can even customise your doc marten boots or old leather jacket … for a quote just message us your ideas, or pop into the studio for a chat with Lee!
I popped into the studio yesterday afternoon and found Lee having a quiet few moments between his customers. The huge huge skull painting he started a couple weeks ago seems to be coming along beautifully …
