1648 Cheese and Crackers Anyone?

11" x 14" oil on canvas board 

Good ol' cheese and grapes, such a popular subject, I'm getting quite an expert at painting grapes I've painted so many!

 I have just started a new painting which seems enormous 24" x 24" and I have to squeeze out a bunch more paint onto my palette which I keep forgetting to do, it's a very complicated subject so who knows how long it will take me to complete, well better get cracking.

1647 Serene Pose

12" x 12" oil on canvas, NFS
This is a  kitty belonging to a dear friend back in England, I have been promising to paint her portrait for ages and I have finally got around to it. It took me quite a while to get her right, but I am finally happy with her.

 Unfortunately my painting room faces south and I have large patio doors to let in lots of light which is far too bright and when I paint from my computer screen the colours and contrast change dramatically. Especially difficult on a day where the sun comes in and out, drives me batty!

1646 'Blue Iris' and he loves chocolate!

12" x 12" oil on canvas board, framed

Another classic set up, a hand painted plate, bought in a job lot of plates and bowls at a local auction house paired with my favourite Denby jug.


Thought I'd share with you a recent pic of my grandson eating a chocolate truffle ;O
