50 x 50 = 20" x 20" oil on canvas to be framed
Still more enamel still lifes! Got this newish bread bin along with a large off white pitcher at a local auction, it's in much better condition to the one I already have. Got so many new props now they will last me for quite a few paintings. All my spare cupboards are full to brimming too.

60 x 60 = 24" x 24" oil on canvas to be framed available via my web-site.
Another copper and brass set-up, this time including a solid brass duck, bought in Portugal many years ago. He is probably admiring his reflection in the copper saucepan.

60 x 60 cm / 24" x 24" oil on canvas, to be framed
More enamel, I've been buying lots of stuff on Ebay, auctions and Etsy, it's becoming quite an obsession to find interesting and colourful old enamel items. I'll have to stop soon though, where to put it all!

40 x 40 cm oil on canvas, to be framed
All items purchased in France on a trip last year.
I tried a different brand of oil paint than my usual one and found it so different, think I will go back to my tried and trusted brand.

I'm on a roll with my new subject matter - enamel kitchen ware, seems to be very popular at the moment. Got lots more ideas in my brain, wish I could paint faster!

50 x 50 cm oil on canvas
The old vintage bread bin is center stage again, flanked by a classic French cup and saucer filled with fragrant black coffee, strong enough to wake up the sleepy, and my turquoise teapot and gaily coloured yellow coffee pot.

8" x 6" / 20 x 15 cm oil on panel, framed as soon as dry!
Started painting again after recovering from two back to back exhibitions. I thought that I would like a change from still lifes and had a bunch of ref photos from a trip to the beach with the grandsons. Got some interesting shots which is always a bit difficult as people can be funny about strangers taking shots of their kids. We had some great weather this summer almost a heatwave which is unheard of here in Ireland. So it was a great opportunity to get some snaps for painting.
