New Commission, New Directions

I was recently asked to make NINE paintings. The choice of subject was mine but I was asked to make a nod to Parnham House in Sussex.

Let me make it clear. I am no landscape painter, but this commission has stretched me to make images that I would usually ignore.

The gallery below includes paintings of a penny farthing, disco ball, a dilapidated country house, a zebra, elephant, chess pieces and blossoms, things that until now would not have been deemed part of my repertoire.

I’m not sure if I’ll continue to use these things in future paintings, but you never know!
