Kid in a Sweetshop was completed in 2019 and features sweets in traditional bottles displayed in our local newsagents (Maudsleys of Teignmouth). It took some time to paint because I only wanted selected bottles in the painting ie. those I particularly liked, so I had to swap them around in the picture which created some problems with lighting effects on the bottles.
I was fortunate to have this selected for the RI Open Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in London and delighted to learn that it has won an award sponsored by the Brighton based Dry Red Press card publishers.
Sadly Covid19 has put paid to the gallery being open to the public, but the paintings in the exhibition are available online on the Mall Galleries website. Kid in a Sweetshop is available to purchase from the gallery which is open now.
