November 8th, 2012 – Breaking News! Web Site Up

Breaking News folks !!!!!!

Hang on we need some funk here…..

The web page is up!!

In 2006 I sat myself down after a whole summer painting in the Highlands. If I was to continue working on my Art & the glass I had to find a way to make it pay & sustain itself. And It had to sustain me too.  That meant firstly doing it full time and beyond that….. well that’s what I have spent the last 7 yrs working out, exploring ways to make the artwork.

One of the most obvious things was getting a web page up and it’s taken until right now November 2012 to get it done.

In a way, it’s nice to now present my mass collection of paintings and drawings. Most of which I am getting to see for myself in frames and all mounted up nicely for the first time. And I am way pleased. The highland phrase would be Chufty Badge.

So a few tweaks to make in the look, fonts and size n such. But I trust it is all operational, my studio is full of prints & frames & mounts should you wish to order something it shall be winging its way to you without delay.

If you do like the page and the work please share my web address on Facebook or whatever social media you use. As a self-representing, self-employed, independent artist I rely on basic word of mouth and help from ya’ll to spread the news & I sure as hell need the help. So much appreciated if you share in whatever way, especially in the run-up to Christmas.

Especially any of my readers in the Highlands of Scotland. After about 10yrs doing craft shows around Inverness I have no way of letting all those folk over the years know about this so that again is where the ol’ social media kicks in. There are hundreds of my hangers around Scotland, a lot concentrated around Inverness and it would be really nice to reach some of those folk.

I spent a lot of time walking about the woods when I was a kid, I spent loads of time looking out the bus window going up and down Loch Ness listening to Jackson’s Thriller on tape. Side A. Side B. Side A. Side B.  That was my education. It was the journey to school, not the school, where I learned.

The pictures on this site are the product of 31yrs work.

Oh aye, I’d let that song play out, it’s great! The total soundtrack to the last 2 weeks I fully recommend the album, obviously not over one of my prints but hell if you can afford both I’d buy it 🙂 Check out that Jackson-style ‘Off The Wall’ rhythm section and backup vocals towards the end. Genius.

Gillies Out.
