Looking into the future.

This is not a good representation of this painting, the light is wrong, the picture isn't in focus but at least you get the idea of the size of this painting. All that concerned me was that the client absolutely loved it and was very happy. I have been asked to do another commission for them later in the year. Lovely lovely family and a pleasure to work with them.

Whimsical Wild Roses


Painting below is SOLD

Personally I would rather have refreshing flowers like these in my bed room than more formal  paintings. These would also look lovely in a guest suite or holiday home, or a childs bedroom or or or. It is possible to do this as a mural on a wall as well, or painting onto furniture, cupboards, benches etc. Contact me for more details about pricing

Whimsical Flowers

Inspired by the beautiful artwork of Laurence Amelie and Claire Basler, I just love their loose whimsical shabby chic style of painting. I will definitely be doing more of this.

International Artist Portraits

Bart Lindstrom

I thought I would share these with you. You can see them all here. All the artists who took part are fantastic. I love the loose style with very little detail. Aaron Westerberg is one of my favourite portrait painters, but then again there are so many it would be hard for me to say who is my all time favourite. Go and take a look yourself and tell me what you think.

Peter Hall Workshop

This painting was quite interesting to do. I started with something completely different and didn't like where it was going. When I started to scrape off the paint, I smeared that gunk back onto the canvas and it looked like rocks, so that was the beginning of this painting. Turned out OK I think ?

Practice Paintings

I gave this little painting to my grandson.

I don't normally paint landscapes, buildings, or scenery and I don't normally work with a palette knife much either, but this was enjoyable to say the least.
