New original paintings in oil

The first two paintings are as yet unframed, but will be soon, along the same lines as 'The Cappuccino Cup' (scroll down to view).
  
'February Storm Sea' has unsurprisingly been inspired by the spectacular weather experienced in this part of the world recently.  Worked on a reclaimed canvas - an abstract I rather liked - the painting is a mix of memories that (hopefully) convey some of the feeling created when witnessing raw nature.  

'Riverford Pears 2014' oil on canvas, 30 x 21 cm.  SOLD



'February Storm Sea' oil on deep edge canvas, 26 x 20 cm.

This painting will be raffled in December 2014 at St Ives Society of Artists.  Tickets (£1 each) are on sale now for this and other artworks contributed by members, with the first raffle taking place in July, 2014.


Here's one of the works I plan to submit to this year's Bath Society Open Exhibition 
which runs from 5th April - 31st May 2014.

'The Cappuccino Cup' oil on deep edge canvas, 30 x 15 cm
framed size 45 x 30 cm


Pictured below with 'Storm Sea 2014' SOLD 13.5 x 13.5 cm
glazed frame size 32 x 32 cm which I also plan to submit

  4. I just love those pears! They look really ripe and ready to eat. Gorgeous! And the seascape as well, of course. I imagine you are having some really stormy times down there - and cut off from the rest of the world too! Hope you are OK, and not flooded, blown away or fallen down!

    1. Thanks Gilly. It's official, we're no longer 'cut off', lol! The weather has certainly been wild though and the sea remains spectacularly rough. Have a good week. Lesley x
