My favourite combination of blue and yellow, this jug has starred in many of my paintings, love it's colour and shape, here paired with a Spanish hand painted candle stick and a dandelion from my weedy lawn.

1794 Highly Strung

5" x 7" oil on canvas board available

This is the painting I did for my demo at Dungarvan Art Centre I gave it a few tweaks when I got home and enjoyed painting it with an audience, small one but plenty of questions.

1793 Put the Kettle On!

30 x 40cm oil on canvas

This lovely big and heavy copper and brass kettle has boiled many litres of water in it's time, I like it's blackened base, makes me wonder whether it ever hung over an open fire and how old it is, I wish it could tell me. It makes a wonderful subject for a still life too. I'm sure I will paint a few more of it before I pass it on.

1792 Copper Lustre

30 x 60cm oil on canvas, to be framed

My old copper jug is in the centre of things again, along with two lustre jugs, both cracked but still useful in a still life set up. I have a whole list of things I want to paint along with some landscapes for a change.

Tomorrow I'm off to do a painting demo down in Dungarvan Arts Centre, it will be a small simple one, which I have painted the rough sketch of onto my board, so it shouldn't be too difficult.
