An original Desert Dunes original painting. Huge sand dunes, a few green trees, dry grass and a distant mountain range. Very loosely based on a random photo from a random book. If I remember correctly, the location is somewhere in Central Asia. Just a window in another world (warm and peaceful this time) somewhere far, far away…

The paper size is about 14.5 x 11 inches (37 x 28 cm). To the shop

After over a week of struggling with painting and decorating I’ve moved to a new shop at the Ladywell shopping center in Newtown (The Market is closing for redecoration for a year).CameraZOOM-20140313141831376-picsay

The idea to have an Art and Craft shop first appeared in my head while walking among blue lupins of Texas at 1999 LPSC spring gathering. So I am very happy to have an independent little “hippie / gypsy” shop of my own and I hope I could stay here for a while. This also will be my art studio.

The shopping centre is mostly empty at the moment but several market traders should follow me very soon.CameraZOOM-20140313141743040-picsay

I’ve also used this opportunity to change the name of the shop from Artish Folk to Art-n-Folk which, I think, sounds better. CameraZOOM-20140313142822927-picsay  CameraZOOM-20140313142010045-picsay  CameraZOOM-20140313152522714-picsay

I’ve already had quite a number of people I know (and I don’t know) saying that they liked the way the shop turned out, which is encouraging. I’ve spent ages figuring out exact shades of the wall paint but then I’ve found out that the type of paint which sticks to the slat wall can’t be mixed in the decorating shop so I had to improvise adding my oil paint to the base color I’ve found.

The shop supposed to be weird, bohemian and wonderful which should go well with punk clothing and an artisticCameraZOOM-20140313152645534-picsay CameraZOOM-20140313153631311-picsayhairdresser moving next door soon. It is for people living creative lives and preferring to decorate their lives with one of a kind stuff.

The shop address is  Unit 12 Ladywell Newtown, Powys SY16 1AF.

Open (at least) on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 10 am till 4 pm.
