March is almost April and I realise that we’ve not posted a single news item to the blog in 2018 yet – blimey! So, perhaps I should wish you all a Happy New Year – a tad late (I Know!).
Where have you been and what have you been doing?
We haven’t been anywhere except the Bay Attic office, honestly. It’s not all sunshine and holidays here (If Only).
David and I have been working away behind the scenes. We’re looking at introducing more framed work to the website and have found some lovely new products too. Then came the snow. Which meant that we could work away in the office but, not get anything shipped out (Arrgh!) Then the back-log of orders that were delayed due to the bad weather and the new ones to be shipped – a crazy week or two and here we are. Spring has sprung at it’s almost Easter. Whoosh!
What’s Popular at Bay Attic?
Since the beginning of the year, Matylda Konecka prints, Peter McDermott art and cards and Janet McCrorie and Peter McDermott mugs are as popular as ever.
Did You Know?
We now stock Peter McDermott and Janet McCrorie Small Mounted Art Prints and Magnets AND some lovely Spring inspired magnets and cards from Keli Clark are a must a t this time of year. They are great little gifts too.
We wish you all a Happy Easter, enjoy the holiday weekend.

Ann Vastano lives and works in the Scottish Highlands.
“I have been constantly driven to recreate through art work those dramatic land forms which surround me. I am also particularly captivated by those character filled bothies and cottages which lie strewn across the highland park. Along with the fickle weather fronts we experience here in the north, these muses are a constant challenge and inspiration”.
Ann says, “Sketching outdoors allows me to immerse oneself completely in the mood and atmosphere of the subject, capturing my perception of its essence”.
For the past few years Ann has worked mainly in pastels and acrylic. However her new work has encompassed using both these mediums alongside paper collage, including – in some instances the use of the written word, which she feel adds another dimension to the composition, opening the work up to further interpretation.

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.

Chris spent his early years in Africa and on returning to Aberdeen attended Robert Gordon’s School. On leaving school Chris spent two years at Aberdeen College of Commerce studying graphic design. He then went to Grays School of Art and studied sculpture and fine art for four years. He has worked as a professional artist since 1983.
Chris is a keen fisherman and outdoor sportsman and brings this passion to his art. He specialises in the area of field sports and game fishing – in particular salmon fishing. His very impressive attention to detail, factual representation and fine workmanship is based on his keen personal interest in all of that which he paints. His paintings capture a fleeting moment in nature, the stag on the hill, the salmon in the pool, the bird on the wing and all of the landscape or environment done to the same exacting standard.
He sells his work extensively through gallery exhibitions as well as individual commissions. He has an impressive list of patrons including multi-corporate businesses and British peerage. His work can often be seen gracing the covers of well known sporting magazines.
