My new Art Show

From the 24th February until the 12th March, your infrequent blogger has an exhibition of his more recent portraits at the Hossack Gallery, 28 Charlotte St, London. It’ll be a small show – perhaps six or so large pieces, for sale if you wish and general perusalment. An online gallery of my paintings – mainly the earlier caricatures – is viewable online at derrenbrownart.com, where prints are for sale if you are considering a gift for a least loved relative.

For those of you who are talented and attractive enough to follow me upon the Twitter, you may have seen I’ve been tweeting a work-in-progress of my father in real time as it comes together. The plan is to include this and one of my mother, as well as some of the recent ones I have posted on this here blog.

Some of you do enquire very kindly about buying originals. I sell the originals through the Hossack Gallery and I’m sure they’d be delighted to take any enquiries. They are big though (the ones above are each five feet high), so you’ve got to REALLY want one in your room.

Any enquiries about the art show, please call the gallery on +44 (0) 20 7255 2828.

Thanking you kindly.


Can you help?

A friend has had her car and two gorgeous dogs stolen in Worcester: can you help?

“CAN YOU HELP FIND 2 MISSING PUPPIES?
LARGE CASH REWARD, NO QUESTIONS ASKED!

A chocolate and red coloured smooth hair miniature daschund 7 months old, male dog, wearing a chocolate brown leather and brass collar,
and a brindle coloured wired hair miniature daschund, also 7 months old, male dog are missing… Can you help return them to their family?

The puppies were in the back of a blue Land Rover Defender, registration number: 888 DAX, which was stolen from outside St Peter’s Church, Worcester Road, Bromsgrove on Thursday 6th January 2011, whilst the owner was attending a funeral. It’s likely the thieves didn’t know the dogs were in the back of the car.

The puppies were in a white wire dog carrier, approximately 28″ x 28″, with a pillow and dog blankets.

The dogs are well looked after and from a very loving home, and are desperately missed by their family.

LARGE CASH REWARD is offered for information leading to the return of the dogs. NO QUESTIONS asked about the theft of the car or other contents, the family just want their dogs to come back home.

If you have ANY information about these two puppies, or the white wire dog carrier please send a facebook message or post on the wall of this page.

Or if you don’t want to leave your name and details, please contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or the RSPCA national hotline on 0300 1234999.”

Coops’ charity moustache

Coops, like my mother and many more of you, has embraced Movember and grown quite the handsome pair of lovelies under his nostrils. It is soon time for him to divest himself of the hairy stripes and once again resemble the baby chimp we have known and loved for so long. Will you donate something towards the Prostate Cancer Charity before he cuts, shaves and moisturises tonight? If you’d like to do this, you can do so here, and your personal level of happiness will be raised by a tiny but important fraction after doing something so kind.

Thank you, please carry on.
