 I was fairly busy on these 2 guys. A little strange for me to work on canvases smaller than usual, but all good fun. I wanted to get back on another Africa theme.. 

Then I got distracted, and at present on the ole easel is the beginnings of a hummingbird. I hope it works out. I hope I do it justice.  

The weather is so very hot, that painting has taken a little back seat. It's the sort of weather to do nothing but melt. I do aim to have the little bird complete in the next few days though.

Stag,Coo and hello Bo

Little while since my last update, but a few new works completed since and a new commission is underway. It's just a shame this horrid thing named 'work', gets in the way of happily painting full-time.

This fella went to join "Coo III" in the reception area of a local business. No sooner had the painting been hung ( coo III)  ... he sold😄. I quickly got on it and painted another coo, imaginatively called "Coo IV". This is how I roll. Everything numbered and stamped with my thumb print  😊. I think this fella might be my favourite Highland Cow to have painted?

I am very thankful to the business in question for contacting me,  and asking if I could give them some works to display. As well as the paintings being displayed, I am able to sell my work commission free. As any artist will say, selling on commission can be at times a little brutal.

At the moment I am working on a commission of a beautiful pooch named Bo. I went to meet Bo and his owner, and he is such a gorgeous hyper boy. Working with oils on this and it's 70x100cm. It's so far quite a process, and after working with acrylics the past 3 paintings, I'm needing to be fairly restraint. Lots and lots to do, but here he is on the easel....
