Run Along Now!
Title: Run Along Now!
Size: 7" X 10" (17.8cm X 24.5cm) Canvas Paper
Artist: L. E. Gav Thorpe
Now OWNED by a Private art collector, East Sussex, England and sold through the Paddock Art Studios in Lewes, East Sussex, England*
I've done quite a few paintings of the shrunken man in difficult situations, such as possibly about to be squashed by a mean or unaware woman. But what if the woman was kind? She might just ask him to run along.
*This painting was autioned off at the Paddock Art Studios in Lewes, East Sussex, England on the 7th December 2013.
The Paddock Art Studios are owned and run by the Lewes and District Visual Arts Association (The LADVAA, which I am a member of ) and is situated at The Paddock Art Studios, Paddock Lane, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 1TW.
The Studios were originally built more than 200 years ago as a stable block for the Haywards Heath stagecoach company. By 1946 the building had become derelict, but was purchased by a Cecil Heathfield who was an Art Adviser for the local Lewes area. He later turned the building it into a studio and gallery, but after his death in 1969, the building was once again abandoned. It wasn't owned again until a committee of trustees joined forces and formed the Lewes and District Visual Arts Association, who still own and manage the building to this day.
The Paddock Art Studio's auction took place on the 7th of December 2013 at The Paddock Art Studios, Paddock Lane, Lewes, East Sussex, BN7 1TW
