Recently my paintings ‘The 3 sisters of Glencoe’ and ‘Arran Sky’ were installed as prints in the Morblas restaurant at Hilton, Glasgow.
The prints are a pretty big 144 x 124cm image size with paper floated into a black frame. They hang at each entrance of the side by side doors at the Morblas seafood and Grill restaurant. The whole restaurant is looking great now (if I do say so myself) and apparently there is soon to be a brand new menu unveiled.
Both scenes of the Isle of Arran and Glencoe are an easy drive from Glasgow and I’d like to think of the tourists coming over and getting some ideas about where to visit around Scotland. Big chain hotels have a tendency to go for generic, mass market inoffensive images and photographs. However it is nice to see that Hilton have chosen to represent a local artist and are displaying a limited print of which there are only 19 other copies of!
Maybe I can dine in there and pay in paintings!
Incidentally, I sent off the original painting of ‘Arran Sky’ to Ohio, USA today. Great to send it out to the states, however nice to know a piece of it still hangs in Glasgow.
