Two new paintings below, which have been delivered to the framers today, ready for the forthcoming St Ives Society of Artists Autumn Exhibition, which opens on 18 October 2012.

'Last of Winter Daylight' oil on primed board, 29 x 20 cm.  SOLD


'Close to the Cold Sea' oil on primed board, 20.5 x 16 cm.  SOLD


'Lovely Evening, Calm Sea'
oil on board, 12.5 x 11.5 cm is also at the framers, to be float mounted, for eventual display at Stisa.


As is 
'Fast Running Sea'
oil on primed board, 12.5 x 9.5 cm 


These next four have been mounted and wrapped and currently reside in the 'browsers' at the Society's Norway Gallery.  No sizes I'm afraid, forgot to measure them - again!  None of them are very big.......

'Breakers & White Horses'  oil on primed board.


'Late Afternoon Surf' oil on primed board.


'Welcoming Waves' oil on primed board.  SOLD


'Surf & Energy' oil on primed board.  SOLD


Looks like I've been really busy - there will be more posted on Picture from St Ives later too - only because nearly a month has passed since the last post.

September has whizzed past - has all hope of an Indian Summer too?  Can't help remembering travelling up to Bristol during a heatwave on 1 October last year, en route to beautiful Mallorca.  Have a good weekend everyone - in spite of the weather!!

    1. Diane, I sunbathed in the back garden today!! Sheltered from the fresh Northerly wind - the clear, blue skies were very welcome. Also watched the 'almost full' moon rising around 7-7.30 before the sky turned dark, beautiful.

      Thanks for visiting. Lesley x

  5. Love the "Breakers and white horses" - but they are all great! You paint seas so well, I can hear them and feel the spray on my face! Wish I could get down to see your seas (and the real sea)!

    1. Thanks Tricia - town is quieter now as the season changes, but there are always those visitors who seek out St Ives when the weather is wilder and a more elemental.

      Always like to keep up with your very original artwork. Hope your dog starts to get better soon. Have a good weekend. Lesley x
