                                   summer
     the exquisite new collection from Sherree valentine daines demonstrates
     her unique command of light and shadow on canvas, and her gift for
     creating unrivalled impressionistic portrayals of the english summer.


     as Sherree herself says: “the long Summer
     days bring with them the most wonderful
     array of social events including royal ascot,
     one of the highlights of the year. But to me
     this great occasion is special for quite another
     reason. this is the time of year when the light
     is at its most glorious; with the sun blazing
     high in the sky, the elegantly clad women in
     their fabulous hats take on an almost exotic
     quality – like butterflies or birds of paradise.
     when i see them against the famous backdrop
     of this historic sporting venue the effect is
     simply irresistible, and i am soon mixing a
     palette of radiant pinks and luminescent whites
     alongside traditional lawn greens and dark
     browns. then there are those long days we all
     remember from our childhoods, when the sun
     never seems to set and we can play endlessly
     out of doors, bathed in that magnificent
     midsummer light. Just the thought has me
     reaching for my camera or sketchbook…”

     A major characteristic of
     impressionist painting is
     the artist’s commitment
     to the study of light.
     The way the light changes
     the shadows and colours
     of a scene has a strong
     influence on sherree’s
     choice of subject.

                                                            danielle is a deeply thoughtful individual, and does not describe herself as a ‘floral artist’. instead for her, flowers
                                                            are used as a ‘carrier’ to highlight the spiritual feelings, emotions and relationships that she wishes to convey in her
                                                            pieces. She spent six months in Japan submitting works to gain a qualification in sumi-e, Japanese brush painting and
                                                            says that her training in this discipline was key in her being able to convey her spiritual side. She was given the name
                                                            ‘chi-Sho’ (source of joy), by the head sensei of the institute where she studied, a beautiful phrase which can be applied
                                                            both to her personally and to her exquisite compositions.

                                                      acclaimed artist rebecca lardner has been named
                                                      as the uK’s artist of the year 2010.

                                                      popular choice. her lowry-esque harbour scenes retain the style and colours that have

                                                      and hotels perfectly situated overlooking the bay. her departure into the world of
                                                      sculpture earlier this year has also contributed to her success and status in the art world.

       after training at Studio escalier, a
       classical art school in the South of
       france, neil set out on a career as a
       portrait artist, but he worked on still life
       to hone his observational abilities. Soon
       however, he found that these paintings
       were in fact portraits in themselves, with
       each subject having a definite character
       and personal charm. he began to
       concentrate less and less on figures
       until he decided that still life was to be
       his artistic future. he is now forging
       an enviable reputation for his small-
       scale, earthy representations of familiar
       everyday items and his highly desirable
       work has been shown or sold at an              Kitchen Heroes

               george Somerville
               george’s natural wit and charm shine out of
               these spontaneous character pieces. Born in
               glasgow in 1947 he recalls that there was a
               great atmosphere in the city at the time, and the
               streets were always busy. But most of all, the
               time and place was characterised by a strong
               sense of community and living for today which
               dominates his new collection.

               george now has a studio in a small fishing
               village on the east coast of Scotland. his work
               is now on display in numerous private and
