1964 Cocktails (Available)


40 x 40 cm / 16" x 16" oil on canvas

Number three in my short series. This heavy vintage soda syphon I bought in auction and then sold again and managed to paint this in-between, paired with a cocktail shaker that I had and rarely if ever use.

1965 A Perfect Pair (available)


40 x 40 cm / 16" x 16" oil on canvas

Number two of three. I chose my favourite pewter teapot, in the shape of a pumpkin, paired with a beat-up vintage copper pitcher for this painting. I take a lot of time setting up a still life, finding the right objects, position and lighting, mostly using natural  day light. I am pleased with how this turned out, though photographing it was another challenge!

1963 Coffee With You (available)


40 x 40 cm / 16" x 16" oil on canvas

First of three paintings with this size and format. Will be framed when dry and varnished. Trying to get a good stock of paintings ready for the Art Fair in Galway in August. Wish I could paint as fast as I get new ideas!

Red breast


40 x 40 cm / 16" x 16"  SOLD

I finished this several weeks ago as a commission, a surprise present for a clients husband. I must say this really was a complex one as I'm sure you can see, but it was worth the effort I'm sure!

Mainly Magenta


12" x 24" / 30 x 60 cm oil on canvas

I like this long format and it has proven to be quite popular with collectors too.   A striking bunch of fruit, veg and flora, chosen for their colours, and shapes, I really enjoyed painting this one.
