1502 Speeding along SOLD!

11" x 14" oil on panel (click on photo to enlarge)

This is a set up with my friend Linda's teapot, inherited from an auntie and probably dates to the 40's or 50's. A lot were made at that time and some of the earlier ones with silvered parts are rarer than this one and can fetch quite a bit in auction.

I thought that I would include this cute cartoon, it makes me smile!

1501 Cherry Decoration SOLD

6" x 8" oil on panel (click on photo to enlarge)
I thought that I would paint a small, simple and easy subject, well that's what I always think until I start painting and then I notice all the variations in colour, highlights, reflections and the like and then it becomes more and more complex and those blooming lines on the jug well.... xo!!+%* This little painting took me two days  almost as long as a larger painting. Still I'm happy with the results so I mustn't grumble I guess!

'1500 Quiet Repose' and successful exhibition!!!

6" x 12" oil on panel,framed
(available through Gormleys Auction House click on link in right bar)
This peaceful looking Buddha head was posed on the window sill in my friend Linda's house in Bournemouth, England. On spying it, I thought what a great subject for a still life with the sun streaming through the window.
As I was visiting England to deliver some paintings for the Society of Feline Artists annual exhibition in London, we took the opportunity to visit friends and familiar places. I also got loads of photographic material both the furry kind and lovely still life objects. We also visited my favourite car boot sale for more items to paint!

Art Exhibition in Dublin
This was the selection on Sunday after 10 still life paintings had sold on Saturday and before four more sold and three more went off to auction. My still lifes turned out to be winners with no other paintings selling, so guess what I will be concentrating on?!! I have another out-door exhibition at the end of September, the last of the season, so I've got to get producing like mad until then. All exciting stuff!
