Small Square Seascape

This little oil painting on board, which measures 12.5 x 12.5 cm, is a typical example of those that I frame and sell at Art Space Gallery  and usually display on Picture from St Ives
Although it may seem surprising, this little picture is the result of many hours of work:  starting with a sketchy idea and then allowing the subject to expand and evolve, not really knowing at first whether the sky will be grey or blue or the sea choppy or calm - whether there will even be rocks.  Perhaps the fact that the outcome is unpredictable is what makes these paintings so interesting and fun to do? 
'St Ives Bay & Godrevy'.  SOLD

Original Paintings for March

A selection of original paintings on board in various sizes - which have already been taken to the framers to be float mounted.  Unfortunately I forgot to measure them first!  They're quite a bit larger than the usual 12.5 x 12.5 cm square paintings though, with the exception of the last one, that is.  Currently to be found in the browser boxes at St Ives Society of Artists.

Yesterday I managed to unintentionally delete an email entitled 'blog post' - or something similar - from Jane M and there's no way to retrieve it!  So Jane, if you read this and your message requires an answer, please resend.  Sorry, still not quite sure how it happened.
