PodsPaintings Arts & Crafts Fair ~ Callander ~ Stall Holders Wanted!

PodsPaintings is organising a fantastic Arts & Crafts Fair in Callander! The event will take place at McLaren Community Leisure Centre‘s Indoor Arena on Sunday 6th October 2013. Itis a brilliant opportunity for local arty people to showcase their beautiful hand crafted items!

Not only will there be a wide range of amazing ‘not on the high street’ items up for grabs, but we are also donating part of the money raised to well loved local charity ‘Chloe McIntyre Memorial Fund’. 20% of each stall holders table hire charge will be donated along with proceeds from the fantastic raffle, soft play and face painting!

McLaren Leisure has kindly agreed to offer their brand new children’s soft play kit for the day, along with a wonderful face painter… so kiddies are more than welcome to join us on the day! There will also be refreshments available.

Calling all crafty people!!!

I am in the process of getting stalls booked and confirmed- if you or someone you know is interested in getting involved, please get in touch soon! The sooner we have stalls confirmed, the sooner the event can be advertised!

Come along for a fabulous day of art and craft goodies, let the kids enjoy the kiddies stuff, have a coffee and a gab and help support a fantastic local charity too!

For further info, or to book a stall, please contact me 07896 490 709 or email pods-paintings@hotmail.com . PodsPaintings is also on Facebook – www.facebook.com/podspaintings

Professional Prints Now Available!

I’m very excited to be able to offer a range of beautifully presented professional prints as more affordable options. As well as my original paintings, you can purchase different sized prints presented either in a cardboard mount, or a frame of your choice. All prints are copies of my own work, and are signed individually. All works can also be made in to gift cards, placemats and other homeware.

Here are a few examples of the prints I am offering:

It’s been a day for painting more trees…

The past couple of days have been my days off work this week, and I decided to make good use of them. I have been trying to build up a collection of lots of smaller pieces of work for galleries and fairs that i am attending. Here are three that I was working on- they have yet to be framed but here is a preview before they are…



Happy Thursday! Emma x

New kitchen table…

My lovely man bought us a big chunky table for our new kitchen at Christmas time.. Its proving to be extremely handy! I ❤ it. A lot. … It gets paint on it, and doesn't mind, it stores all my painty art stuff and it has room for my laptop and a big bunch of flowers (two actually!)
Here's to big chunky tables and MORE PAINTING 🙂 happy Wednesday. Emma,x

I have soooo much to do today and I am not quite sure where to begin! I have even made a list! Think I’ll start with the dog walk… And go from there.
Happy list making day! (I hope you all get more done than I think I will!) love Emma, PodsPaintings

Excitement …

Lots happening at PodsPaintings!
I am very pleased to be busy painting lots of new things for the Stirling Uni Craft Fair in April. I will be exhibiting some of my larger paintings as well as new smaller mixed media ones and also some signed prints.
As well as the craft fair, I will also be exhibiting at the Gordon McFarlane Jewelers & gallery in Alloa, where Neil McFarlane is running an open gallery, starting next week. Please pop down to have a look at local artists work.
I have also joined Central Arts, who run various exhibitions in central scotland, including the ongoing and popular exhibition at Torwood Garden Centre in Larbert. All of the 20% commission from each sale is kindly donated by Torwood’s owners, to local charities.
I am going to be mega busy getting everything ready for these three exciting exhibitions! Just as well I’ve set up an account at the framers! Im off to take my ‘Lady in the Trees’ to be framed today at the West End Gallery today. And I am also going to have some work professionally photographed for prints at Rhoddy Stewart Photography.
Here is a wee painting I am working on at the moment- it is not finished yet, I’ll be doing it shortly. It is called ‘A Walk at Auldich’.
