It’s always so fantastic to get the chance to see ones work in the beautiful galleries at The Royal Scottish Academy on The Mound, Edinburgh, so it was wonderful to have my painting ‘Remedy for a Heavy Heart’ included in The Society of Scottish Artists 130th Annual Exhibition which runs from 17th Dec 2022 to 18th January 2023. This painting was inspired by a 15th century herbal recipe called ‘Elixir Vitae’ (containing nutmeg, cinnamon, pennywort, gentian Lutea, Anise and Spikenard). The exhibition was given a 4* review in The Scotsman by art critic Susan Mansfield, who said ”Since it’s Christmas, imagine a box of chocolates: the tantalising appeal of a newly opened layer, all those flavours waiting to be enjoyed. The Society of Scottish Artists Annual Exhibition, decking the sumptuous halls of the RSA this festive season, is a lot like that”. Love that idea !
