I can't believe it's two years, where does time go!
We would love to have the pleasure of your company at my gallery on
Saturday 20th November where we will be holding a Celebratory Exhibition!
We will be open from 10am to 5pm at:
The Joanna May Gallery
16 Northgate Street, Devizes Wiltshire SN10 1JL
Come and join us for a glass of wine and celebrate two years of 'The Hare on the Moon' treasure hunt book where you will be able to buy your Golden Hare Trail map. To be enjoyed in its own right or as an extra aid to help solve the treasure hunt.
We will also have a fabulous new and unique display of Rachel Ducker and David Metcalff handmade wire sculpture which will flow through into our, newly developed, sculpture garden at the back of the gallery!
You will also be able to enjoy my original paintings and prints with some discount off on the day to help with that special Christmas purchase!
I would like to say thank you, in advance, for all your support over the last two years and making my life as an artist so magical with your belief in my work!
I really look forward to seeing you on the day and celebrating with you!..
My passion for your pet.
It's been a while since I have posted an Animal Portrait, suddenly I am being commissioned to do them again.
It's funny how other work opens up when the last project, the map, is completed.
Two gorgeous new breeds have been booked in the last week, a beautiful Schnoodle called Cosmo and a Miniature Dachshund called Narla. I can't wait to portray with my passion in pencil your pets - all the P's here ;-) and a final one, it really is my Pleasure!
Here is a gorgeous white Alsatian, which was the last Animal Portrait I completed. The beautiful Bessie had passed away and it was my pleasure to work from photos and capture her for 'Posterity'. The owner wanted her star sign and gorgeous Bessy's in the picture.
Animal portraits can be booked for a small deposit. They start from £250 for A5, for head and shoulders, and go up to £950 for A2 in size.
I work from your photos and like to take some myself if you can bring the dog in.
Please visit my website www.joannamay.com to book your precious pet.
It really is my pleasure! x
Harry Potter wire owls swooping into the gallery!
This customer is a wise owl, he commissioned a David Metcalff owl looking as if it is just about to land.
It arrived today at the gallery, not holding a letter ha ha! I can't wait for the customer to come in and pick it up, I think it looks wonderful.
Well done David, I love the way the owl counter-balances from its tail with two wire spikes to go into the ground, making it look as if it is swooping!
Maybe I will ask David if he could make this a regular sculpture to have in stock. What do you think, I'd love to have your thoughts, do you think it will become a regular best seller?
Swoop left to see it from the front!!!
