I'm Back - (probably a bit too soon).

Well, it's a bit embarrassing - warning that I might be offline for quite sometime, possibly a week and here I am, back after less than 24 hours!

Luckily, after half heartedly trying again in the hope that some computer miracle would happen e.g. switch on, wait 30 seconds and hey presto windows desktop appears, displaying most importantly the Internet Explorer shortcut icon (didn't happen) I realised that there were some options open to me, thanks to those little F keys - no, I'm not swearing - F9 I think, allowed me to opt for a 'System Restore'. So that's what I did, restored the computer to its factory condition. Wonderful! Everything's so fast, because, apart from the Internet connection, the computer has no files!

I'm not too worried because there should be some back up via PCWorld. So for now, the sea-blue-sky-abstracts Etsy shop will remain in Vacation mode until I can ensure that the relevant image files are back on my computer.

Thanks for all of the encouraging comments - you're a great bunch. Bye for now.

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'
acrylic on deep edge canvas, 30 x 80 cm.


Beach, Action and Shadow'
 acrylic/acrylic gels on chunky deep edge canvas, 50 x 50 cm.
