Doug Hyde's painting The Love Bug looks a little like my Mini - well it's red and small and cute.
Art galleries adore this artist and recently Doug Hyde met his admirers in Newark at Trent Galleries. Andrew Hardy who owns Trent Galleries said that "Doug is a really nice man and despite being so successful, fame has not gone to his head"
Doug's latest collection evokes fond memories from Doug's childhood to present day and tells a host of small stories. His narrative demonstrates charm and honesty and carries an optimistic message, proving the collection to be one from the heart. Mucky Pup (my favourite), My World, Love Hearts and of course The Love Bug give us something we can all relate to.
So in all the art galleries, in all the world, we are lucky in Newark to have an art gallery that connects us with Doug Hyde (named by the BBC, the most popular in the UK!)
