Two vintage kitchen gadgets, a mincer and a green bean slicer both made by Spong & Co are in a face off. You can see who the aggressor is, wonder what it's all about!

2061 'Bread and Coffee'


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.

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.

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.
