2030 'Exposed'


30 x 60 cm oil on canvas

Another painting to carry on the theme of yesterdays painting, the colours of the background are slightly more yellow, can't always get the colours accurate with photography despite photo editing.

2029 'Opening'


12" x 24" / 30 x 60 cm oil on canvas, framed

Now here is something different from my usual style! duck eggs in a row with my old coffee pot, vase and lily. It's so nice to have a change in painting styles, very refreshing, painted a sister painting to this one which I will post tomorrow.

Autumnal Colour


8" x 6" oil on panel, framed

It's coming up to that time of year again! I look forward to the summer for so many months and then it's gone again so quickly. Still each season has it's own pleasures, the turning of the leaves being one of them.

2025 Morning Coffee SOLD!


40 x 40 cm 16" x 16" oil on canvas

I strolled through a flee market in northern France in June where I found this lovely old Peugeot coffee grinder, looking beautifully chipped and vintage. I bought several other items that will appear in future paintings, looking forward to painting them. I wish I could paint a bit faster, have more ideas than time!

2024 Blue Teapot


40cm x 40 cm / 16" x 16" oil on canvas

I found this old chipped enamel teapot in a local auction along with a few ancient kitchen bits and bobs including this egg timer, which was so dirty you couldn't see the sand in the glass, so that did get a clean. But the teapot I left with all it's layer of dust and cobwebs. The egg I found with the feather attached one morning while making breakfast, and of course it had to get included

2014 In Harbour


15 x 15 cm oil on canvas, framed, available

I have got so far behind in my posting, it will take me a little while to catch up. So much to do and time flies by and things get neglected. It is so hot here in Ireland, a very rare occurrence, that it's hard to concentrate and things get put off until the weather goes back to normal, (cool and rainy!)
