Ready for winter action, hanging on the wall. Even in the UK, December ice skating is a holiday activity for December. This year there are as many as eight ice skating rinks set up in London for the pleasure of winter revellers. ¬†For those of us who don’t actually have any skates, a painting in my December give away series will have to do.

Advent Artist Day 11

Some months ago I was thrilled to see that the demonstration for the Saffron Walden Art Society was to be done by Hashim Akib. I’ve wanted to see Hashim work for some time. I love the dynamism in his acrylic paintings and the boldness of his colour work. So I was absolutely gutted when I got delayed in London on a work project and didn’t get back home in time to go to his demonstration on the Friday evening. I’m still hoping that one day I’ll have the opportunity, but in the meantime, I’m adding him to the list of Advent Artists. Hashim’s work can also be seen on his Facebook page.

If you’re in London any time in the next week, you can see one of Hashim’s paintings on exhibition at the Mall Galleries as part of the annual exhibition of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters. The exhibition is on from today until 21st December 2013.

    I noticed that you signed up for Leslie Saeta’s 30 in 30 challenge. Congrats.

    I’m one of the challenge artists too. Isn’t it exciting she’s giving us another chance?
