2051 'Waiting for Dad,


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.

2032 Intertwined


50 x 50 cm / 20" x 20" oil on canvas

An old brass charger was among a box full of old metal plates and platters, although rather bashed and mended I liked the pattern that had been beaten onto it. Paired with some beeswax candles I thought it would make a good subject to paint, though it became a 'fiddler' I could have fiddled and corrected this painting forever more!
