'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!!

November 2021 - Small paintings on board.

  November this year is fairly mild, quite wet and with more sunshine than we could have hoped for.  And in the absence of gales (for now) the trees still have their leaves and the colours are amazing.  The sea is spectacular at the moment too, with huge swells pounding ashore yesterday. Below are some paintings I completed earlier, scroll down to see more: Currently at Art Space Gallery, St Ives 'The Sea Brings Its Own Light' oil on primed board, 13.5 x 13.5 cm. SOLD 'Surf Close By' oil on primed board, 13.5 x 13.5 cm. SOLD 'Coast and Pool' is on display at St Ives Society of Artists   Annual Christmas Open Exhibition starting today, 13th November, 2021. A great show, not to be missed and admission is free. 'Coast and Pool' oil on primed board, 13.5 x 13.5 cm. SOLD 'A Sandy Clearing' oil on primed board, 13.5 x 13.5 cm.

Collage two paintings 30 x60 cm

In this detail, the anaglypta, pink florist's cellophane and paint on canvas can be seen. Reddish/brown transparent glazing in the centre section and swirls of aqua opaque impasto on the right. This includes a piece of anaglypta from Carol Parsons painting class back in March, 2009? This particular piece of wallpaper has already been used to 'print paint to canvas'. Victoria Hilliard produces lovely ceramic pictures inspired by nature, including the portrayal of moths and butterflies. Would I have produced this collage if Tori were not a member of Art Space Gallery? Maybe not. Everything is 'grist to the visual mill' as far as artists are concerned. 'Floral - Pedestal' this painting just evolved. Fun, fun and more fun! 'Floral - Feel Amazing'. I love this artwork! My daughter's boyfriend bought her flowers, including old fashioned roses, which provided the inspiration for the flowers at the top of the painting and the cellophane wrapper
