A Tidy Little Ship

                                             8x10  SOLD

This was painted at the request of a friend. I've been enjoying messing about with water in these latest paintings. There is a definite learning curve going on.

Boats for Sale

                                                                 8x8 Acrylic  SOLD

This scene is from the UK. The picturesqueness of the place caught my eye initially, but that wobbly yellow line really drew me to paint the picture. I think this could be sub-titled "Legacy of the Drunken Sailor".

Safely Grazing

                                                                     6x6 SOLD

I've had this image in my mind for such a long time. During my trips to the UK, I encountered countless sheep. In this particular instance there was a golf course near to hand, tourists roaming the land, and pictures being captured - and these sheep were unconcerned, steadily grazing. For me an image of trust and security.

A second "abstract". This was was an evolutionary process taking place over a stretch of time. It is also a bit of an experiment using acrylic modeling paste, text, stamped images etc.

Bosky View

                                                                      6x6 SOLD

I haven't posted in such a long time. It is not for lack of creating. I have several projects on the go...printmaking, painting, and playing with mixed media. This is my first finished mixed media work. It is quite textural in real life; an appropriate statement on my emerging creativity after such a huge year of events.
