40 x 80cm / 16" x 32" oil on canvas
Finally finished! This one took me ages as you can probably imagine. Somebody suggested that some of my still life paintings need a more interesting background, (I tend to keep them plain) hence the Persian rug behind the set up. I love the results,but the pattern of the carpet nearly drove me crazy, but I persevered nevertheless.

40 x 50 cm oil on panel
A classic subject matter and popular with the male population! I bought the cheeses at a glorious cheese shop in Galway that stocked every conceivable cheese known. The round cheese is called Reblochon a French mountain cheese, a bit smelly but had a wonderful nutty,creamy taste, the orange coloured cheese at the back was a mature Gouda and tasted almost like Parmesan cheese and had to be shaved off the wedge. Lastly a lovely wedge of Stilton, all gone now of course!

7" x 14" oil on panel, available
I bought three small rugs from a local auction recently with the idea of using them as backdrops in my paintings, this one has a simple pattern compared to the others, took the easy option first!
