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.

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.

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.

3 lovely juicy fruits, bright colours of summer. How lucky we are to have such a wide variety of fruit available the year through. But none taste so delicious as the summer ones.

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!

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

Trying to get a few small paintings done for a gallery down south, I have a list of paintings I want to paint and somehow my time seems to get spent doing other things, I wish I could paint faster!

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.

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.
