I’m exhibiting in London!

London Happy Hour

Big news!   I’ve made a legitimate crossover as an international artist.

Soon I’ll be exhibiting the painting above at my first group show in London at Bankside Gallery (next to Tate Modern).   The exhibition, titled “London Lives,” will run from September 9th through the 19th.

This competition was announced in the Guardian newspaper, which certainly attracted a large number of entries.   Nonetheless I have been selected among a short list of 100 artist invited to exhibit their work AND I’m one of just over 20 being awarded a prize (the specifics of which will be announced at the private opening).   It’s certainly quite an honor.   If you’re in the area, please come and see the show.

I must give a huge “thank you!” to the painting’s owner, Cat Scott (an amazing artist and illustrator) for letting me borrow it for the exhibition.   I promise to return it to you dinning room soon, Cat.

Although the original is obviously not up for grabs, prints and greeting cards of the painting are available here on my ImageKind account.

  • Woo hoo! I’m so excited for your show and am very happy to let you “borrow” your painting. One of my dad’s old watercolors is hanging in its place, keeping the wall warm for the London painting’s return to the states. Congratulations again!

  • I’m so excited it made it. There’s nothing more nerve racking than shipping a painting overseas on a deadline.

  • Glad things are going well…. I am still going to get you photos of my daughters one of these days for their portrait if you are still doing that sort of thing !!

  • Hello John,

    I certainly am still painting portraits and will actually be in Louisville at the beginning of Oct for a wedding if you would like to meet. I’ve already completed one portrait from London and shipped it back to Kentucky.


  • Ashley,

    Bravo, Congratulations, I am sure your success will continue to grow.
    I have enjoyed hearing about how you are and how the London scene is treating you.

    All the best,


  • Ashley, Congratulations!!

    I am not surprised that you have crossed over to an international artist. You are sooooo talented. I enjoy having your painting in my living room – everyday!

    Sincerely, Jean – in Louisville.
