Studio Sale!

(this page will be updated, with new items (or items being marked sold) during the next two days)

Hello – after a wonderful year in the studio, my most successful since being a full time artist 11 years ago, its time to start putting my house in order, thinking about work for the new year, and deciding to host a studio sale to sell off many studio works and studies that were not included in exhibitions this year.  The sale also included numerous framed paintings at greatly reduced prices, as well as examples of life drawing completed at Westgate studios throughout the year.

The following works are available in this year’s sale, which takes place in the project space on the 2nd floor of Westgate Studios in Wakefield on Wednesday 27th November, one night only, from 5-9pm.  If you live nearby, and wish to get a sneak preview, please contact me.  Also, the framed works are not available for posting, but the unframed works are.

Exhibition Season

Hello – Firstly, I’ve updated my last post of available works.   This year has been wonderful for private sales, and online interest, with many of the paintings sold, so I have left the remaining ones on site on the last post.  Please contact me for details.

Upcoming this year is my involvement in the Great Yorkshire Show -first time showing here as part of the art exhibition – 15 selected artists, who also give a demo during the three day event (9th, 10th and 11th July) – my demo is on Tuesday 9th July at around 2pm.  There will also be around 10 of my works on display.  Presently I’m preparing for my next solo exhibition at Chantry House Gallery (Ripley, near Harrogate) in the beginning of October, and possible inclusion in two more group shows at that time.  Delighted to recently win the Jackson’s Open Painting Prize in Still Life (With “United Nation’) – out of thousands of entries, that was a real boost to my work.  And with plenty more followers on Instagram, I feel like my work is really starting to get a wider audience.  Its hard to say how that actually translates to what I do in the studio, if at all, but it gives the ego a little nudge now and again, and that can’t be all bad!

Putting up 5 paintings today.  The Bell Jar Limes, The Single Apple and Lemons in Glass Bowl are all sold, but the ‘Pink Nosed Pig’ and ‘Loaf’ will be showing at the Great Yorkshire Show’ near Harrogate in July.

Available Studio Works

Now that I’m preparing new works for upcoming solo and group shows for later in the year (and beyond), I thought now would be a good time to list (most of the) paintings currently available to view and purchase direct from the studio.  All works are framed – and will be shown in their current framing (though this can be removed on request).  If you have any enquiries please contact me by email at prstonearts@yahoo.com

I have found over the last few months that Instagram is the easier online site for me to use, and I keep it undated with new work being completed.  I can be found on #paulstoneart , where I welcome likes, comments and questions (and followers!).

Many thanks, I hope you enjoy the work, and if you so wish, I look forward to hearing from you.  Paul

New Class Update

Hello – a quick update to tell you I’ve started a new art class at Wakefield Westgate Studios on Wednesday nights at 7pm.  It runs for at least an hour, no extensive knowledge of art is required – running under the working title of “Quite Interesting Stuff About Art…”, it covers new art news, a couple of historical or significant works in more details, and general chat about what’s happening in the art world.  So its not (as yet) a practical ‘how to’ paint and draw class, so you can just turn up, enjoy a hot drink and biscuit and join in.  Cover £3 per person.

In order to keep updated about any possible cancellations – for instance the class won’t run on artwalk nights, or for a period during the summer – please send me your email address to be put on the email list that I post to each week.

Thank you   Paul   prstonearts@yahoo.com

New Year – and so it begins.

Hello – a very mixed 2017 that happily ended on a good note with a successful solo show in Sept/Oct and a studio sale that brought in a lot of new clients (and which filtered out interest to current gallery work).  I’m grateful to everyone taking an interest in my work, be it encouragement or purchases of my work, as this gives me the confidence (and importantly, the time) to continue with my practice, and really looking forward to what may be in 2018. I have plenty of ideas bubbling away in the studio, first off a couple of private commissions to be completed, then the first open studio night of the year on Jan 31st.  I also wish to start sending out more information regarding new works (and where they will be appearing), so using this platform (and my Facebook page ‘Paul Stone Artworks’), I will be asking for anyone who wishes to be added to my new monthly email newsletter to send me their email address so I can include them.   I know many of us are bombarded with unwanted emails, so this will only be on a request basis – I still own my website domain name, so the plan is to finally get that up and running within the next few months.  In a crowded market, its time to get more active!  Happy 2018 to you all, and below are a few recent painting that I hope you will enjoy.    Best wishes   Paul  

Contacts update.

I have been using social media for work updates, so thought I would share details on how to contact me, and sometimes it can be quicker to get updates on new work.

I have an art page on Facebook:  Paul Stone Artworks

I’m currently in a mild panic producing enough works for the upcoming Saatchi’s The Other Art Fair in Bristol, a solo exhibition at Chantry House Gallery in October, and Chester Artist’s Fair in November – see you soon!     Paul

New for 2017

Sorry been away for so long, new post coming within the next two weeks – left a couple of new images in the meantime.  You can also follow me now on instagram – paulstoneart , which tends to be easier to use when I’m in the studio (I’ve had to ban the laptop most days, too distracting!).
