Spring is here!

keli-clark-love-artt

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.

And Finally

We wish you all a Happy Easter, enjoy the holiday weekend.

Janet McCrorie | Artist Spotlight

Janet McCrorie produces the most vibrant, colourful and energetic art. She captures the essence of Scottish Country Dance in her eye-catching work.

janet-photo-31“I live in East Lothian and my working life has revolved around teaching and creating arts and crafts. I have studied painting with the Open College of the Arts and at Leith School of Art and have had two excellent mentors in Jacqueline Watt and Damian Callan.

I paint Scottish dancers using mixed media, plotting out the familiar shapes by scraping and scratching vibrant colours across the painting, meeting the challenge of capturing the look of the tartan and the movement and exuberance of the dance.

I work from photographs, sketches and from life, attending Highland Dancing competitions, Scottish Country Dancing events and Ceilidhs all over Scotland. My aim is to make the viewer smile and to induce a sense of nostalgia while putting a modern twist on the spectacle of these ancient traditional dances.

My paintings have been used to illustrate the Royal Scottish Country Dancing Society‚Äôs Annual Review for 2011.”
