New Studio

It’s been a labour of love making my new shed / studio. It’ll remind me of how I managed to do something positive during lockdown as well as giving me a push towards getting back on track with my painting ambitions. I love being a teacher, but I love making art more!

Here are my basic plans. I’m no woodworker but it wanted to make sure that I stuck to a plan.

All that hard work means that I now have an area of my own to paint in, although my wife seems to like it too!

Here’s to many happy hours painting, creating and watching the birds 🙂

Jerram Gallery

I delivered some of my paintings to the Jerram Gallery in Sherborne, Dorset yesterday. It’s a beautiful space and I’m very grateful for the opportunity. The gallery will be uploading images of my work soon, but in the meantime I’ll put them here for you to look at:

A Very Important Commission

I’ve painted plenty of commissions in my time, but when my wife asks for a painting, it’s top priority! Here’s a glimpse of what’s been happening on my easel during the past couple of weeks. It’s taking a while, but it’s a labour of love… IMG_5383 IMG_5386 IMG_5388 IMG_5390 IMG_5391 IMG_5392 IMG_5393IMG_5427

And here’s the final piece! ‘It’s called ‘Tea for Two’.
