Looking East

Looking East – Sold
10 x 12 Oil/Panel

This is one of the paintings I am submitting to the Albuquerque Museum Miniature invitational exhibition. I am still struggling with the other one. Better get back the studio!


The enjoyment of being able to work uninterrupted!

Derwent Meadow – Sold
8 x 12 Oil/Panel

Another one finally finished. I so wish my work would photograph better. In reality there are so many nuances which you just can’t see. Still here it is. A Lake District meadow. I do love that area.

I have almost finished my pieces for the museum, but still working on the Howard Mandville pieces. Thanks so much for all your kind comments.

Return to some serious work!

Meandering River – Sold
10 x 12 oil/panel

I have often visited this type of landscape… I just love the meandering rivers. I am trying to finish up pieces for the Albuquerque Museum invitational and the Howard Mandville invitational and then need to paint some larger pieces before I take off for the UK again. I am excited as I have the chance of a show in the UK next year. Will I cope with the British winters? It will be a good test!

Return to some serious work!

Water 10 x 12 oil/panel

I am back! My friends left last week and although I miss them, I am happy to be able to get back to some serious work. I have so much to do. I did do a little work when they were here, but there is nothing like being able to work without interruption for hours and hours, which is what I am doing now.

I am finding it hard to know when a painting is finished?! Anyone else have this problem? I have a tendency to overwork a piece and not leave all the lovely underpainting nuances… I have tried to leave more in this one.
