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!)

20 x 25 cm / 8" x 10" oil on panel, framed,

Dug out this pretty piece of material I had, to use it as a background for my pots, love the colours, looking forward to summer.
We have real April weather here, rain, shine and repeat, clouds moved along by the very gusty winds.

2012 Silver and Blue

20 x 25 cm = 8" x 10" oil on canvas panel, framed

My blue bottle again, he has featured in a number of my still lifes, past and present. I think he is  admiring his own reflection in his silver companions.

2008 Candle Light

35 x 25 cm 14" x 10" oil on canvas
This one was difficult to photograph, the colours are not quite right - the rose is more pink as is the glass, when you correct one colour it skews another. Not expert enough in photo editing to know how to remedy the problem. Anyway this is the first of a pair of paintings involving a single rose.

2003 Eaten

25 x 20 cm = 10" x 8" oil on canvas panel , framed available

Another painting of my silver cup with enormous winter strawberries from Spain, and both still with the remnants of the blossom. The third strawberry didn't quite make it as I had to do a taste test!

2001 Delicate Rose

6" x 8" / 15 x 20 cm oil on panel, framed available

Something different from the usual fruit! Roses are always a challenge with their many petals and shades so easy to get lost even on a small painting.

2000 Shelled

30 x 30 cm = 12" x 12" oil on canvas available unframed or framed

Another orange, this time ensconced in a vintage butter dish in the shape of a sea shell, whose glass liner has long since bit the dust, but makes an interesting object to paint.

Light and Shadow

New seasons mandarins complete with leaves, well I couldn't pass up the opportunity to paint this pair of lovelies when my hubby brought them home for our fruit bowl and they were lovely to eat too.
