My lovely cousin, photographer Tim Gander has given me the guest gallery spot on his website.  He has photographed 12 of my paintings and each is available as fine art prints in 3 sizes, 10 x 8" (£40.00): 12 x 16" (£90.00) and 16 x 20" (£120.00).  It is easy to get 'off the peg' frames from major retails to fit these sizes of print.  Check out Tim's gallery at https://www.takeagander.co.uk/-/galleries/guest-artist

<![CDATA[Circular World]]>Mon, 10 Feb 2020 17:46:13 GMThttp://sarahmcdonaldart.co.uk/blog/circular-world
A development in my use of circular subject matter. The background consists of several layers of underpainting to give it a multi faceted richness.  Layering paint is also a feature of the large circular areas.  A cascade of bubble like shapes completes the composition.  The painting measures 76 x 60 cm and is priced at £475.00.  Contact me via the contact page for further information.
