Here is the next body part, charcoal on cartridge paper, it made me realize how complex we are.


Happy New Year to one and all.
One of my aims for the New Year is to incorporate the human form into some of my work.
With  the old adage “ to break the rules you first have to learn them” in mind I recently started taking a Life drawing class, which I am really enjoying.
To get a firmer grasp on the basics I have started to draw the muscles and bones of the body so in between showing recent works I thought I would show some of these. Here are the first two - charcoal on heavyweight cartridge paper.


Fruity Vines

I had started off with something completely different on this one and didn't have any other canvas left(as it "occasionally" happens)... but I needed to get out what was in my head. My latest:

Just came across this image of an old work of mine that I painted when we lived in Spain.

It was of a place called Sotogrande, which has a large marina. I realized that it was the forerunner to the Valletta series which is the capital of Malta, where we are currently living.

I no longer have the original Sotogrande as it was appropriated. I hope whoever is currently in possession is enjoying it.


Red Shiva

Here's my latest finished work:





The amulet at the centre of this mixed media piece was blessed by a Buddhist  monk during my travels in Thailand.


Another two based on my partner's photo:

A word about my work

The objects in the mixed media pieces are reclaimed and recycled, picked up on my wanderings.

The glass in the painting - Shattered Glass – was picked up from a rocky beach where I walk. It's an area that once was wild and beautiful, but is now  scarred by the thoughtlessness of drunken revellers lobbing empty wine bottles, and other even less savoury objects about.

Size does matter!

Normally I like to paint on canvases of 50cms by70cms and larger,
cos I relish the freedom of big canvases  but I started to do these
little 20x30 canvases for a festival and although at first I found
them quite a challenge, after the first ten or so I got quite hooked.
I am endeavouring to paint a small canvas a day as I find it's good
discipline and continue to work on the larger canvases as well.

more blah

Having read many blogs, I realise I have nothing original to say,  so without further ado I shall just show you my art and and hope you enjoy it.
