Two versions of one of the latest, done while working on a commission which gave me more trouble than anything I've done for years; but perhaps more about that later...

They'll be coming round the headland when they come - Round the Island race off St Catherine's Point
This is an 8" by 10" oil on board which I've had the devil's own job photographing - I just seemed to have lost the knack of photographic my own stuff, Lord knows why.  Think I've got it more or less right now though: anyway this is as good as it's going to...

Charlie's Day Bed
Well here we are again.  I think we can safely say that the weather has cooled down now - not that it was exactly tropical in August. But we are back, with a few paintings to follow; this one is of Charlie the dog, who has featured here before.   My landlor...

Too hot!
Temporarily retired until the weather cools down.  I have two paintings sort of on the go, but the chances of finishing them this week while this weather continues are slim: as slim as I shall be if I keep melting...

Have a listen - for your sake and mine.

The latest two on the blog, after a period of some artistic inactivity.

Still alive......
Just busy with other things. I have painted a couple of acrylics, which had to be packaged and posted before I'd got good photographs of them. These are the best I can do (the photographs, that is, not the paintings - I'm sure I'll do better than those ONE ...

Robert Jones commented on a post on Blogger.
The internet is plagued by people of such extraordinary stupidity you wonder how they ever manage to find their way to a computer keyboard, and then hit the right keys. Unfortunately, you have wandered into their world. The Chinese government does not recognize the international copyright agreement and anyone on an art forum should know that. Of course the Chinese people have been producing artworks of staggering quality for centuries - you didn't dispute that. The argument is not with them, but with shameless copyists who seek to profit from others' work. What kind of lame-brain wouldn't understand that? Well - the kind of fool you've encountered on this forum: you don't identify it, but there are several candidates. Unfortunately, not everyone who wields a brush necessarily has whatever intelligence they were born with: and rather than think, they attack any opinion they regard as potentially deviant from their cliched certainties. Expressing an opinion on any forum is a risk, if you're at all sensitive to the prejudices of idiots and their incapacity to understand basic English. (I think there's enough provocation in all that to stir a few of them up and, I hope, cause them the distress they deserve...)

Eyes front.
Got my new lenses this morning - a big shock .... The improvement in my vision is dramatic,  I can see colour better, especially when it comes to differentiating the darks, so I've no excuse for not painting. Now, I'm relying on you, here and on Facebook, t...
