'It's got to be Porthmeor' and other small paintings in oil.

Well on into January and here's my first paintings post of 2015, doesn't time fly!

This part of Cornwall was gloriously sunny today and looking beautiful, with barely a cloud in the sky.  I had to pop over to Penzance this afternoon; the hills and moors were sharply etched against the solid blue of the sky, Mounts Bay was gleaming and St Michael's Mount looking particularly imposing.  The whole journey was a continuous visual treat. 

Find the square paintings at Art Space Gallery when open again after refurbishment (no later than 29 January 2015).  The rectangular artworks are awaiting mounting and or framing.......

  3. I do love your sea paintings! You capture the very essence of the waves! It's far from sunny and bright here - we have snow, coming down and on the ground! Not good for walks with the dog, but needs must!
