 December 2020 Seasonal Greetings and Latest News from Paul Taggart's studio
This comes with Seasonal Greetings and our warmest hope that 2021 brings a more stable year for us all, with less challenging times.

            We are not alone in these different times, creative folk all over the world have suffered hugely, some have been able to adapt, others have not been so fortunate, we are keenly aware of these difficulties and have never taken our creative lives for granted – which is what drives our ideas and output. Along with many millions worldwide, Eileen and I have been shielding since the beginning of March and continue to do so; beavering away in our studio, juggling our work with forward ordering of groceries for delivery, planning out new ways of shipping prints ordered by collectors (without leaving our home), coping with the many ‘unforeseen problems’ thrown up by the various platforms that we rely on to deliver our creative output and so on and so forth.

Although plans for one of our private-invitation weekend studio visits and viewing of new works had to be cancelled, we continue to fulfil orders for Limited Edition Prints via our official Paul Taggart website and to offer a bespoke-gift-card/voucher service (perfect for seasonal or celebratory gifts) – easily arranged personally with anyone registered with us to receive our personal e-newsletters.
We have also brought forward plans to open our ‘virtual gallery’ on Saatchi Art, where you can now view some of my Elphen Chronicles artworks, available as Open Prints, produced and supplied directly by Saatchi Art. This is very exciting for us, as it enables us to offer open prints of the large Masterworks oil paintings from ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’ at the same size as the original paintings, which measure 24inches wide x 36inches high (although there are two smaller size options to choose from). Saatchi offer a complete service, which means these prints can be ordered on Fine Art Paper framed as well as unframed, alternatively as box-canvas prints. Click on ‘The Silver Forest’ image and you will be taken to the page shown here, in which you can use the tool that shows a scaled impression of how the print will look in the frame of choice.
Currently we have three large Masterworks to choose from and the smaller ‘Webstrand’ - to provide even more background information on each of these four images, have released a FREE-TO-VIEW behind-the-scenes video reveal for each -  in which you can see the paintings develop from the first drawing out to the final finishing touches, along with a short extract from the Video-StoryBook version of ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’, plus snippets of music composed by Liza Mulholland, music that has grown into a full-blown original Musical version of ‘Webstrand, the Tooth Gatherer’ (news of that album coming soon).
We’ll be in touch again soon, on the other side of this year – meanwhile, please take care, stay safe to keep well, with all best wishes from Eileen and myself,
