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

glazed frame size 32 x 32 cm which I also plan to submit

  1. Lovely new work Lesley... especially the pears - so different from the seascapes! Good luck x

    1. Thank you, Sally - still-life is fun to do and makes a change! x

  2. Brilliant work as usual - I love them all Lesley xxx

  3. your February Storm at Sea is outsanding ~!!~ adore all of the beautiful textural details and the motion of the water and the colors~! definitely a favorite.
    the still life pieces are beautiful as well.


    1. Libby thank you so much! Hope not too much snow for you to deal with at the moment? Have a good week, Lesley. x

  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

  5. They are all fantastic Lesley, you are a very talented and versatile artist, I love February Storm Sea, the sea always has a pull... and I consider the beautiful pears and grapes part of my SEVEN a day! x

    1. Thanks so much Anne! I really enjoy your daily photographs too. Best wishes. Lesley x
