From 7 to 11 February 2016 I will be exhibiting at Home Hall 1 Stand 1M38 of the Spring Fair in the Birmingham NEC, UK with my daughter Corinne and we will both have a selection of our artwork on display. If you are in the area, able to attend, and wish to meet either of us for a chat, please let me know. Please bear in mind that it's a trade fair, so I won't be selling anything directly from the stand, though I will be taking orders for delivery. It's going to be extra special. Photo's will be posted afterwards. I will have these originals on display and a folio selection of my artwork.……

Hello to all at DA...

My sincere season's greetings, wishes of a Merry Xmas and the happiest, most prosperous New Year to all at DA!

I hope you've all made at least one art related resolution. I have. :)

Meanwhile, thank you so much to those who purchase a print of, :+devwatch:, comment on, :+fav: and even view my artwork. I sincerely appreciate it. :worship: + :hug: I do try to reply to all comments, though there's simply far too many :+fav:'s and :+devwatch:'s for me to thank those who do so individually. If I tried, I'd simply never get any painting done!

And remember that if anyone is interested in a signed gicleé print, they are only available via my website: R Young Art. Please e mail me at with your requirements and to discuss the details. However, I can't offer the full range of print types and sizes that DA offer as I simply don't have time to administer such a range. What I can promise is absolutely outstanding quality from my professional Epson Stypus Pro 7880 wide format printer on the highest quality Epson 350gsm heavyweight Premium Satin poly/cotton (65/35) water resistant art canvas at a high definition 2880 x 1440 dpi and using UV resistant 9 colour 100% pigmented inks guaranteed lightfast for 75 years. This canvas has a slightly glossy surface and may be stretched for framing if required. I can also print on Epson's heavyweight fine art paper if required.

Also, I am always on the lookout for representation by publishers, galleries, agents, licensors and other representatives by the way, in case this is you, or in case you know one who may be interested in my artwork...

And I welcome any opportunity to generate a little publicity via exhibitions, magazine articles, interviews, blogs, etc...
