I have always been enchanted with sculpts and paintings of big woman, in particulair happy ones, they are often so much more buoyant and graceful than thinner…

Jack Vettriano has revealed he turned down the chance to produce a painting for the National Galleries of Scotland – because they asked for a portrait of golfer Colin Montgomerie . He said: “I was in France when I got a call from my art dealer, who said there might have been a breakthrough. ‘The national galleries would like you to do a portrait’. I said, ‘Who?’. ‘Colin Montgomerie’. “I said, ‘I’m afraid that the answer is no’, I don’t do men with breasts, and I don’t mean that as unkind to Colin Montgomerie (sic) .

Falkirk Mod 2008

The National Mod 2008 has started this week in Falkirk . The Mod is a Gaelic festival of traditional music with a prestigious gold medal for the best in each category .

Artist Banksy has issued a statement that over 200 art works supposedly by him are in fact fakes .Pest Control, the association set up by Banksy, said 89 street pieces and 137 screen prints have been falsely attributed to him.

Banksy has a casual attitude to copyright and encourages the reproduction of his work for your own personal amusement, so it’s with regret that he finds himself having to deem pieces either ‘real’ or ‘fake’. He would encourage anyone wanting to purchase one of his images to do so with extreme caution, but…
