As a small cartoon “Scotty” fae Star Trek has beamed doon into the original artwork “Four Seasons in one day”.
Strange New Worlds has gone where no Star Trek has gone before — the actual Scotland — to recruit 29-year-old Martin Quinn as “Scotty”. 29-year-old Martin Quinn, born in Paisley and trained at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Even a American listener can immediately detect the difference between the typical “Hollywood” Scots accent and the real deal. Martin is Standing near the front-centre of the artwork.

NYC & Twin Towers 1998 -2021
 A donation will go to 9/11 memorial
New York in Paisley, From the sale of the artwork a donation will go to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum 
In 1998 my painting, Italy/USA on mirror, was on display at Rico’s Italian Restaurant in Glasgow. When they closed, I went to pick up my paintings and the workmen said they had been smashed and I did see 1 of “Rome” in bits. Really down hearted as I had spent a lot of time on the paintings. Now in 2021 a chap comes into the gallery and showed me a picture “New York and the Twin Towers”. In amazement I asked where he got it and he said it was in house in Bathgate. I would like to thank Simon Lieberman for retuning the painting after 23 years and is now on display at the Sunshine Gallery Paisley Shopping Centre level 2 next to Cafe Su
