'Blue Horse' SOLD


7" x 6" - 18 x 15 cms
------------------------------------------------------------------
This little horse comes from Denmark and belonged to my Mother and the 2 marbles I bought among others from a Christmas market in Heidelberg. Somehow I think they go together but I don't know why, they just look right.

'Poppies in a Blue Vase' SOLD



8" x 10" - 20 x 25cms. approx. acrylics on canvas
----------------------------------------------------
Well my New Years resolution is to try to paint looser, so I've started already with a very impressionistic acrylic flower painting!

'Aiden'




This is the portrait I have been working on, up until Christmas. This little boy was just short of his 1st Birthday when I took his photo. I spent an hour or so with him and his Mum and Nan and none of us could get him to crack a smile no matter how much we jumped up and down or made faces for him! I think he was thinking ' what's the matter with all these people!!!'so the result is a serious almost grown-up portrait. I wonder what he will think of it later in life?

Going Away!

Well I'm off to Germany for a break away with Liza my daughter, for a week, to do some shopping for art supplies and other stuff and to visit friends. Then my hubby's home for Christmas so whether I get any painting done I don't know, but regular service will resume as soon as possible!

'A Quick One' SOLD



6" x 6"- 15 x 15 cms. oil on gessoed board


--------------------------------------------------------------


This is a revised version of my original posting as the plate was rather out of shape.

'Looking the Other Way' SOLD


6" x 6" - 15 x 15 cms. Oil on gessoed board
-------------------------------------------------------------
Here is a quick one I did the other day and wasn't that pleased with it. I find if I paint when I have other things on my mind then the resulting painting isn't very good. I have been getting some larger paintings ready for a local exhibition so I have had a lot on my mind together with the fact I am going away for a week on Sunday to Germany, Christmas is coming and I haven't sent a single card.. not in the mood, so I'm not very productive this week.
