Where to begin? Small paintings, a backlog...

Summer whizzes by - and what a summer (temporarily supplanted by wind and much needed rain) the long balmy days and heat have been wonderful.  Hope the good times return soon! 
Because life has been so busy, blog posts have been far and few between, so this looks to be another 'bumper crop' of my small paintings in oil on board.  Showing the most recent first.

Big and small original paintings....

Had so much fun painting the first two artworks (shown below)
which were prompted by the fear that continual painting in oil on small boards was making my work too tight.

Also, the last two very large commissions in oil on canvas completed last year were a struggle and soooo time consuming, which I have attributed to the lack of speedy, loose gestural under painting in acrylic, which were a feature of earlier large compositions.


'Sea Mist Offshore, Porthmeor'
