What is... January

Happy New Year everyone!

If you have bought (or received) a copy of my 2013 wall calendar, I hope you enjoy it over the next 12 months. And if you are now wondering what each of the monthly images are, you've come to the right place! At the end of every month, I'll post on this site what the image for the following month is, and (if relevant) any story behind the image.

So without further ado, what is January?

...January's image is a wintery scene from Strathclyde Country Park of Hamilton Mausoleum.

My gran sent me the source photo, and this artwork was a warm-up sketch using a ballpoint pen & watercolour paint.
I was always fascinated by the strange looking building, which is easily visible from the M74 (near Motherwell/Hamilton/Glasgow), but only within the past few years have I become aware of what it actually is.
Hopefully news of what this image is hasn't given you the heebie-jeebies: But if so, sorry! On the plus side, there's only 31 days to go until you get a new image.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everybody!

A few hours ago, I (with a little "help" from the cat) made this quick painting, of a scene from what is possibly my favourite festive film: Elf (2003).

It's a pretty lousy effort, but the best I could do with limited time & all the cat's "help": While working on this, the wet cat decided to try making himself comfortable directly on my workspace, tried nicking several paintbrushes from my hand, and even pushed my tub of water away (almost spilling it over both the painting in progress & over a live extension cord on the floor below!)

I plan to release a new wall calendar for 2013, featuring prints of a variety of my artworks as seen on the Art of Andy R Macpherson facebook page.
The calendar will cost £8 each (excluding delivery), and be with you in time for Christmas.

All orders will be submitted to the printers on Sunday, and then sent on to you as soon as I get them back (within a week or two).
