20 x 25 cm / 8" x 10" oil on panel available
My favourite colour combination, the petals of the 'mums' are slightly more textured to give contrast to the smooth and shiny glass bottles and ceramic glazed egg cup.
Just got back from Dublin and the outdoor art exhibition around St Stephens Green, despite showery, blustery weather, 9 paintings found new owners and I'm a happy bunny!

25 x 20 cm / 10" x 8" oil on panel, framed and ready to hang
Another dark one, not the easiest to paint, drove me slightly potty, couldn't get the glow of the candle right and had to paint the background three times to get it even, I kept smudging other colours onto it.
Just bought myself a huge box of latex gloves to protect my hands as I'm always having to clean my hands, I'm such a messy worker. They are great when I remember to wear them!!

Good ol' cheese and grapes back by popular demand! The set up is on a piece of weathered slate roof tile, found near an old derelict house close to where I live.

Thought that I would like to create a more dramatic still life, so I set this one up just before going to bed on a piece of black velvet and one overhead lamp. I took about 40-50 photos, playing around with the lighting and the set up, then started painting next day from the pic I liked most.

30 x 40 cm oil on canvas, sides painted, available
Another abstract that evolved into a sea-scape! I started out having only the colours in mind and let my brush and palette knife have free reign, I like the heavy dark sky lightening to the horizon, far, far away.

Another experiment in semi abstract painting, kept quite monochrome, painted on an oxide red base layer. Got so many ideas and styles I want to try out, the possibilities are never ending!

50 x 65 cm oil on canvas, framed available HERE on Artfinder
This is a painting I did a number of years ago and as it was unvarnished I decided to improve upon the original!
I am backed up a bit with my posts as I have been painting madly and haven't got around to photographing them yet.

Dogs don't need words, they can tell us so much with their body language and eyes. He's curious and wants to know if you will play with him.
