Previous Articles and Events

I would like to say thanks to the Paisley Daily Express for the above articles. to Hamishes Hoose Paisley who are in their position and also thanks to Lawrence Gilgallon who is 1 of the main lead characters and in place and at the front. With recent bookings to be in the original painting from Lee's Diner, Cafe Su and Margrets Boutique with small tents, along with Brian Kerr to be standing at the Barshaw Park pond with a wee boat.

To participate in this unique and original artwork of Barshaw Park. Please come into Sunshine Gallery at the Paisley Centre Market (on the middle floor) or email your details

Looking down from the hill at Barshaw Park on a summers day, over the pond with Paisley Architecture in the background. you or your family can be in this small time capsual and unique original artwork, which will also depict Paisley History, here you can be painted, as a small "Lowry" character with your unique number so that you know where you are, for the artist to place you in the painting, maybe playing a guitar or to even to be on the small train.

With your ticket you are automatically entered into a free prize draw for a framed signed limited print

If you wish your business /organisation to be in this unique opportunity or to be as 1 of the main characters, please book your own painted stall or tent with your business name/title asp as this will help in layout and design. We will also link to your web address (optional)

Just before Christmas, once completed the original artwork will then go on auction for charity in December 2017, prints will also be available.

To give an idea, of what is meant by a "Lowry Character" This is big Alan Lyndsey local Paisley Actor, Singer and Poet, who you may remember from such a Band called "The Suns".
Below I have began just to work on the outline to give an idea of the painting, when completed the final artwork will be full of colour and movement on a summers day. Maybe with a picnic at the very front looking down into the painting

How it works.  

As this is an original painting, where time will be taken for completion and then to be auctioned, with the proceeds going to a charity in December 2017.

With conformation you will be given a unique number, with your details and number, the artist will then put your number in your position in the painting, which will allow the artist time to continue with detail such as hair colour and clothing.

It would be great to get everybody in the original artwork as a small time capsule, to which I hope you all will participate and to please share.

The painting will work in 5 sections with "Lowry" characters in deep perspective and more detail applied to each character as they get closer in perspective.

There will be various promotional opportunities for various organisation, businesses and charities, with their own illustrated marque and title.

Just before Christmas, once completed the original artwork will then go on auction for charity on the 18/12/2017

Kind Regards and thanks for your time
