‘River Dee in November’

Headlines

‘Storm Frank’ devastated many businesses and homes in the Deeside valley in December. Royal Deeside is a wonderful place, especially Ballater, which I’ve called home for more than thirty years; so to show support and aid the raising of relief funds for people and businesses who have been deeply affected, I’m donating “November at Bobbie’s Pool” a painting of the River Dee completed in 2006.

This painting was originally showcased in an exhibition of mine at the ‘Marcliffe at Pitfodels’ to support The River Dee Trust. The exhibition was successful in raising a substantial amount of money. This painting has been in my private collection since, but I’m now hopeful that it will help raise the necessary funds to enable the local community to rebuild the areas affected  by Storm Frank and I’m happy to see that the community spirit is already shining bright, with lots of work and refurbishments already underway.

“November at Bobbie’s Pool” will be auctioned at the Victory and Albert Halls at the Ballater and Deeside  Flood Fundraising Event, on Saturday the 6th February from 7pm. Although tickets have sold out the organisers and Butterworth Gallery are taking bids until 5pm on Friday 5th February for more details contact Sarah@butterworthpaintings.co.uk or Tel: 013398 86104.
