A PICTURE CAN PAINT A THOUSAND WORDS
Working in acrylics, I paint landscapes, real (from photographs on my travels) and many imaginary places that can only exist in the mind of a writer. In my world, the sun is bright, the snow plentiful and Autumn a season to be rejoiced. It was quite by chance that I fell into the glorious world of painting. But that's another story for another day.
In my Gallery you will find a selection of my work; please take a moment to visit.
Small, decorative and affordable, I paint individual works of art on flat canvas board or stretched block canvas that make colourful additions to any home or ideal to give away as gifts. Sizes where given are approximate. Framed paintings are also offered for sale unframed. For details and prices, double click on individual photos in the Gallery; this will enlarge the picture and give details. I hope you will find something to your liking. Should you require any further information on how to purchase, please contact me. I would also love to hear from you with your comments.
Earlier in 2011 I was delighted when Yarm Originals Art Gallery offered to show two of my paintings. In November 2011, the Art Gallery UK based in Tetbury, Gloucestershire accepted three of my pieces for display. 2012 sees two exhibitions planned, one on 16th June, also at Tetbury. Further news will be posted when in due course.
What I am not is a skilled photographer. The images captured in the Gallery do not do the paintings full justice. Because of this I do offer a full money-back guarantee if not completely satisfied with any purchase.
Unlike for Snowglow, I can't guarantee a personal delivery so postage and package will need to be added to prices quoted.
I do take commissions, however I do not paint animals or people.
Well, not yet anyway!
Brush With Bluebells
My first "proper" painting and my first international sale.
It will forever remain my favourite.
Snowglow was my first large painting. Entered into the Spring 2009 Winsor & Newton on-line art competition, it ranked in the top 40 from over 600 entrants.
Later sold by auction, the money raised by Snowglow was donated to a very special little boy coping with cerebral palsy, in order to help sponsor him through The Footsteps Foundation, a specialist unit in Oxfordshire that helps with children with neurological disorders.
Carrying a lot of pride along with the artwork in my suitcase, I took great delight in being able to deliver the painting in person to the purchasers in Spain. It now hangs in their apartment, a vibrant reminder of winters in chilly Britain.
The pen is mighter than the sword but a brush can take on the world.
