New book - Dreamland now available

Earlier this year I won the Gemini Digital Colour Prize at the Artists Of The Year 2015 show at the Mall Galleries London. The competition was organised by Artists & Illustrators magazine and I won £500.00 of free digital printing which I used to print an initial run of a new book of an overview of my work from the last six years. Put together in inDesign by myself it incorporates some pages from an earlier book of my work now nearly sold out called [Re]View together with well over 50 pages of new work ranging from Imaginative Realism to Orientalism to Landscapes and beyond. It is called "Dreamland" and is an A4-sized true bound book with 80 pages all in full colour.
The postage costs plus a packing cost of £1.00 are £2.45 for the UK, £6.00 for the EU and £10.00 for the USA. Payment unless otherwise organised by Paypal.
Here are some sample spreads:

Art Renewal Center

I was pleased to see that I am a finalist in the Art Renewal Center's 12th International Salon. I don't know yet which painting(s) has been accepted but it is nice to be in it for the second year in a row and look forward to seeing the catalogue with my work inside.

Abend Gallery Show

Here is the flyer for the "Inner Visions: Contemporary Imaginative Realism" show by the Abend Gallery in Denver Colorado. The show runs from October 8 to November 11 2016 and I have two paintings in it, "Cold Constantinople" and "Fireflies".

New Book

I have just taken delivery of 50 copies of my new book "Dreamland. Paintings by Mark Harrison". Earlier in the year I won an award at the Artists of the Year 2015 show at the Mall Galleries in London organised by Artists & Illustrators magazine. The award was for £500 of free digital printing sponsored by Gemini Digital Colour and I decided to have a book printed although it has taken a long time to put together in InDesign and not helped by the last two months being away from the studio.
I am not in a position to start selling them yet as I still expect to be away for a couple more weeks before things hopefully get to something like normal.
I will advertise them properly then but just thought I would give advance notice for anyone interested. I think I will be selling them for £15.00 plus postage/shipping. 80 pages perfect bound book A4 format.

Abend Gallery show

Just an advance notice that I will have two paintings exhibited at the Abend Gallery, Denver, Colorado in the Inner Visions show running from 8 October to 11 November 2016. They will be "Cold Constantinople" and "Fireflies" which were originally painted for IlluXCon but as I am unable to attend they will be exhibited at the Abend Gallery instead.

International Artist magazine

Continued apologies for lack of posts but still away from the studio most of the time, hopefully things will start to normalise in a few weeks...
I have been asked by International Artist magazine to write a four page article on my work under their "Master Painters Of The World" heading which should be published in the forthcoming December/January issue assuming that I can get the materials to them in good time.
I am thinking of concentrating on my Roadside America series of paintings for this with the addition of "Cold Constantinople" to give an idea of other subjects that I paint.
