2090 Lemons on the Side


30 x 30 cm oil on canvas, available
I love painting copper as you all may have guessed! The light and shadows, reflections and dents not forgetting some verdi gris just make up an interesting subject to paint, taking a short break from enamel.

2087 'Gather Round'


50 x 60 cm 20" x 24" oil on canvas

More enamel and copper, my two favourite subjects. My hubby managed to get me a piece of marble, featured here, it is so heavy I can't move it! I thought it would make an interesting addition to my still life set -ups.

2086 Ruby Reflections


70 x 70 cm (28" x 28") oil on canvas, available
This is the largest still life I have ever painted and as a consequence I almost gave up on it! I have got some even larger canvases but I'm not sure whether I want to tackle them! I know that when they are framed they won't fit in our car!

2083 Blue Light


60 x 50 cm oil on canvas framed and available via my web-site
 Here some dahlias from my garden which are taking centre stage along with my favourite Denby jug that I have painted many times.
 The weather this August has been awful, cold, very windy and constantly raining more like late autumn, my tomatoes just aren't ripening only thing doing well is courgettes, I have a ton of those!
Still when I'm indoors painting like mad I don't feel like I'm missing out!

2082 The Huddle


50 x 50 cm oil on canvas, framed, available via my web-site

Lots of blues in this one, the dark blues don't photograph well. because the differences in tone are not strong. I keep buying new things to paint and I'm running out of storage space.
I'm moving my painting room downstairs at the weekend to a bigger room will be a good time to get rid of stuff (in theory!)

I have been neglecting my blog and the paintings are backing up a bit! I am painting furiously at the moment, concentrating on my ever growing collection of vintage enamel kitchenalia, I'm going to have to stop soon as I'm running out of places to store them!

2079 Ho Tai and Roses


30 x 40 cm oil on canvas
Haven't been painting much lately, managed to get this one finished. Roses from my garden, though they have suffered much through our wet and windy weather here, popped in a battered old copper kettle.  Paired with the monk Ho Tai who brought a bag of sweets to the children who came to hear his teachings.

2078 Green Light SOLD!


40 x 40 cm oil on canvas SOLD
Wow I've just realized I haven't finished a painting in a whole month, I've been so sidetracked by other things, gardening being one of them, looking after grandchildren while my daughter was on holiday and visiting auctions to acquire stock for my Etsy shop and the tedious job of sorting cleaning, photographing and posting each item, just to mention a few jobs. Time is just flying by and I need to make time to paint too.

2077 'Two Blues'


15 x 20 cm = 6" x 8" oil on panel framed and available
Another cheesy one!
I have dug out my watercolours and giving them a whirl, struggling a lot as the techniques of creating a successful painting are so different from oils and I'm not happy at all with the resulting paintings not spontaneous or loose enough just plain wooden.

2076 'Blue brie and Cracker'


15 x 20 cm = 6" x 8" oil on panel

Cheese and grapes is an ever popular still life subject so thought that i would get back to painting a couple.
This one is on a piece of slate, that came off an old derelict cottage's roof that I found on one of my walks around here.

2075 'Checkered'


30 x 60 cm 12" x 24" oil on canvas
Here's a partner painting to the last one I posted, it has taken me ages because of breaks due to various reasons one being of course Easter. It was what I call a fiddler, because of checks and elipses shadows and reflections. I lost the flow due to all the interruptions too, so I'm glad this is finished at last!
