NEW! Small Mounted Prints


Really excited about these NEW! little  mounted prints. They won’t break the bank, look great on your wall or to give as a gift. I’m so chuffed with them that I’ve most likely posted this post far to soon – as we haven’t got them all online yet (Cheeky I know!).

These little gems of a mounted print come sealed inside a cello bag with an artist biography sheet. They are digitally printed and have a double-thick mount in an off white colour surround. They look and feel brilliant. The mounts are high quality conservation board and just add that wow! to the small prints.

What’s also so great about these little guys is that they fit into a standard 10″ x 10″ frame or 10″ x 8″ frame.

They are great to give as a gift and fit easily into your suitcase to take as a souvenir to family and friends at a wedding or abroad.

Billy Bob Penguin – 5 Minute Stories

John Bathgate - The Storr in Snow

The Storr in Snow Limited Edition Art Print

Billy Bob never fitted in among the other penguins, while most of the group listened to Bjork and other experimental Nordic groups, his heart had always lay in Country.

He felt the heart-ache deep inside himself, he often walked to the human’s hut to listen to Whispering Bob Harris on Radio 2.

There had been a group of Texan’s working on a drilling rig near-by, and a few years back Billy Bob had liberated a Stetson from one of the least intelligent.

He imagined himself in the deep South Louisiana by-way, sitting on his rocking chair listening to Emmylou Harris.

Billy Bob Penguin – 5 Minute Story – Inspiration

The word given for this 5 minute story was Penguin, a tricky subject me thinks, Penguins and art – but, hey Presto, the good old Scottish weather made me think about snow, the North of Scotland and eventually the Isle of Skye, and to this wintry scene – The Storr in Snow by John Bathgate. Hope you enjoyed the read!

About the Artist

John Bathgate works from his studio at Roskhill, just south of Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye. A borderer by birth, his love of the rugged and wilder country of Scotland’s north-west saw him move to Skye in 1992 and it is this landscape which inspires his work.

Most of his ideas are gleaned from walking in the landscape recording details in sketchbooks, drawing in pencil and watercolour crayons to give a “loose, washy account of my ramblings”. It may be a panoramic view, or a cluster of trees and houses, often it is smaller details like dry-stone dykes or a tangle of seaweed on rocks. Back in the studio he can concentrate on the paintings without the difficulty of the elements, a necessity in a highland environment. On occasions some images arrive on their own with no preliminary drawings or at times when an accumulation of work starts a flow of ideas. As he says himself, “I like to have an open mind and try any new ideas that come my way, I am always learning”.
