At Auction - "Sun and Shadows, the Campsies"

Coming up shortly for auction in Glasgow is this early painting of mine, Sun and Shadows, the Campsies.  

It's an oil on canvas measuring 14 x 16", and is of a scene very familiar to me, looking over the valley from Mugdock to Strathblane with the Campsie Fells and  Dumgoyne.

Interestingly, it was the very first painting that I ever sold in London, so I was very excited indeed the day that I got the news of its sale.  It represented quite a breakthrough in my career.

It was purchased at the Ainscough Gallery in Chelsea on 6 December 1997, and I'm pleased to say that with an estimate of £400-800, it's increased in value since then! 

If you weant to follow its progress (or even put in an online bid...), then you can see it on the McTears Auctioneers website HERE.
