Impressions of Venice opening night

Last Friday I went to the private viewing of the Venice show "Impressions of Venice" at the Mine Gallery in Carshalton, London. I had a great time. It is a beautiful show and I'm very proud to be a part of it. Here are all the details about the show which will run until the end of March:

All paintings are for sale and can be viewed on the online catalogue in the link below:

Here are some pictures of the evening:

we knew each other from Facebook but it was the first time we met for real!

To finish this post, here is a great video done by fellow painter Roy Connelly who was in Venice last November with us and put together this film to show what a great trip it was. It comes from his blog and he kindly let me use it here.

David Bachmann
Roy Connelly
Tony Dakin
Tim King
Valérie Pirlot

Haidee-Jo Summers
Karl Terry


  1. Looks fabulous. You should all be proud of this exhibition.

    1. Thank you Mick! I'm very proud indeed, it's good to be surrounded by such great talent!

  2. SUPER post. Wonderful art. I hope the show went really well for you and your friends. I'm so glad you included the video, it gives a true feel for the trip.

    1. Thanks Douglas! I love the video too, it was done by fellow painter Roy Connelly who is a really talented film maker and painter at the same time. The show is on until end of March so fingers crossed for some red dots :-)
