1303 'Little Feet' SOLD

6" x 6" = 15.2 x 15.2 cms oil on canvas

Another small painting featuring cute shoes, this time on small feet. If anybody out there has or can take some ref pics of interesting or colourful shoes and feet for me I would love to paint them as I am slowly running out of ref material.

1302 'Love' SOLD

6" x 6" oil on canvas sides painted

At last my first painting in over 3 months, I have been procrastinating these last 2 weeks wondering whether I had forgotten how to paint and afraid to just start, anyway I thought that I would start with a familiar subject and may paint a few more like this one. getting myself organized in my new painting space has been a bit chaotic because the room is so small so it might take a while to find the best place for everything, I think I might need some more shelving on the walls. I found a really neat picture shelf in Ikea which is narrow in depth and has a lip on the front and is an ideal place to put wet paintings to dry out of harms way.

Moved at Last!!!!

I arrived in Ireland at the beginning of January and my daughter Liza had already found us a small house to rent in Dublin she thought that by the time I arrived she would be moved in, no such luck! It took us another 2 months and and quite a few grey hairs to get the key to actually move in. I won't bore you all with all the details. The house is lovely apart from the fact that the shower only runs cold and dishwasher doesn't work the kitchen had no fridge and the owner of house is not replying to our calls for help. I washed my hair in the kitchen sink this morning that was fun! To top it off my computer, that I had left here a year ago, has died and gone to computer heaven so we managed to get my daughter's up and running, next step is to get my painting room sorted and to buy some work surfaces and a chair and I might manage to start painting again soon, I sure have missed it.

Well enough moaning now, happy to be semi settled for a while and looking forward to slapping some paint onto a few canvases. Howdy to you all and happy painting.
