Heapey Gallery can now be viewed as a VIRTUAL GALLERY thanks to Google Slides – quite easy to produce but, as always, the time goes into the preparation of content. Looks great on the desktop, but download Google Slides app to view on phone. Feedback very welcome!
Covid-19 has changed a lot of things this year. For me it gave me the chance to really focus on my painting and, thanks to a few posts on Facebook, quite a lot of interest was generated. To enable safe distancing with some interested clients, I used my summerhouse as a space to display some of them. It worked so well the ‘Heapey Gallery’ was born and has led to several commissions. I have lots of new ideas I want to experiment with. Paintings range from semi-abstract seascapes and florals to abstracts with an ‘industrial’ flavour and now contemporary figures in landscape. This is in addition to smaller pastel landscapes of places visited (Budapest, Athens, Venice) and the occasional pet portrait. Knowing how people like to have something ‘local’ there are of course some pieces about Chorley. The larger acrylics are complemented by a range of very different, bespoke frames – styles such as ‘driftwood’, ‘vintage distressed’, ‘concrete effect’ and many others. Commissions are welcome and visits to the gallery, by appointment. See more here

Even the smallest companies should aim to maintain a strong brand identity BUT there’s a knack to designing an office without going overboard on the company branding.
It’s very off-putting when your logo is emblazoned on every spare bit of wall space.
You could create a wall mural that features your brand in a prominent part of your office, and then decorate the rest of the office in a more neutral, less formal manner.
The trick is to ensure clients know exactly who you are without compromising the general look and ambience of your property.
So, it turns out the Pantone “Colour of the Year” 2016 is not a colour at all, but rather two colours – Rose Quartz and Serenity. For those who don’t have a finger on the pulse of colour fashion, Pantone is the leading authority in forecasting colour trends and identifying colour using a standard language.
Ordinarily, only one colour is chosen, but this year, Pantone has released the pairing and dubbed it to be a conveyance of warmth and tranquillity. Additionally, it has been described as a blurring of stereotypical gender boundaries – with the perception being that pink is for girls and blue is for boys – Pantone has eliminated this by announcing these two colours are the go-to shades for design this year, no matter who you are.
As these colours are not too imposing, they would work particularly well for those seeking a wallpaper mural with a dreamy or subdued style.
